The star of the original Happy Days series Henry Winkler dropped into an American diner at Bluewater as the venue backed a new musical based on the sitcom.

The legendary Fonz actor and charity campaigner stopped at Ed’s Diner to line up alongside the show’s cast of ex-Emmerdale actor Ben Freeman as Fonzie, Sugababes star Heidi Range as Pinky Tuscadero and Bucks Fizz singer Cheryl Baker as Mrs. Cunningham.

The retro restaurant is launching a themed menu to mark its partnership with Happy Days – A New Musical, which launched at Bromley’s Churchill Theatre in January.
