It was announced in October that Claflin would be joining the drama alongside former Hollyoaks actor Emmett Scanlan and many others.

The next season of the Bafta-winning period crime drama – which is moving from BBC2 to BBC1 for its fifth series – will also star returning favourites Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson and Sophie Rundle, to name a few.

Season five is set in the aftermath of the 1929 financial crash, and sees Murphy’s Tommy Shelby entering the world of politics – but when one determined politician approaches him with a plan that will change the country forever, Shelby has to weigh up how his actions could affect the future of not only his family, but also the nation.
