BBC Eastenders star Steve McFadden ‘faces court over doubling the speed limit’ UK News

Eastenders star Steve McFadden is believed to be in court after he was caught driving nearly twice the speed limit.

The actor was reportedly caught doing 35mph on his moped in a 20mph zone in October, according to The Sun.

The soap legend who portrays Phil Mitchell on the long-running BBC soap opera was caught near his home by a police speed rifle and is due to appear before Bromley magistrates this week.

The 62-year-old joined Eastenders in 1990 alongside his on-screen brother Ross Kemp.

His character is currently in prison on the show for his role in the murder of Vincent Hubbard, played by Richard Blackwood.

It comes after Eastenders star Jamie Borthwick had his driving ban curtailed due to his recognition on public transport.

The 27-year-old actor played Jay Brown on the BBC soap opera for more than 15 years after joining the show in December 2006 aged 12.

He was caught speeding to 52mph in a 30mph zone in Romford in May last year.

Eastenders airs Monday to Thursday on BBC One at 7.30pm.
