Phil Daniels is reunited with the Lambretta scooter in Soho, London, with which he appeared in 'Quadrophenia' to mark the release of 'Our Generation', a compilation album of 75 Mod classics, ahead of Mod Week which runs 24th - 31st August, 2015.

Quadrophenia star Phil Daniels is set to join the cast of Call The Midwife.

The former EastEnders actor will appear for one episode on the BBC’s period drama as a pigeon fancier called George.

His character will refuse to leave his East End home, despite it being marked for demolition during the slum clearances.

The BBC confirmed the news, which was first reported by the Mirror.

Daniels, 61, first found fame playing cockney teenager Jimmy Cooper in the 1979 cult film Quadrophenia.

It is loosely based on The Who’s 1973 rock opera of the same name.

In 2006 Daniels joined the cast of EastEnders, playing Kevin Wicks until the end of 2007.

Call The Midwife, the BBC’s award-winning period drama, is currently in its ninth series.

It returned earlier this month with the current series beginning in January 1965 with the funeral of Winston Churchill.

Daniels’s episode of Call The Midwife airs on January 26 on BBC One at 8pm.
