WIRRAL'S James Bond star Daniel Craig appears alongside the late Sir Roger Moore and Sir Sean Connery in a set of stamps celebrating almost 60 years of films featuring the superspy. 

The 10 Royal Mail stamps will be available from March 17, ahead of the release of 25th Bond movie No Time To Die in April.

They feature the six actors who have played 007, in scenes from the films in which they made they made their Bond debuts as well as some of Q Branch’s most well-known vehicles.

Daniel Craig is pictured in a scene from his 2006 Bond debut Casino Royale; Pierce Brosnan in a scene from 1995's GoldenEye, Timothy Dalton in The Living Daylights from 1987; Roger Moore in Live And Let Die from 1973; George Lazenby in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service made in 1969 and Sean Connery in Goldfinger from 1964.

Q Branch vehicles on the stamps are the Lotus Esprit S1 Submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Little Nellie, the autogyro from You Only Live Twice (1967) the Bell-Textron Jet Pack from Thunderball (1965) and the Aston Martin DB5, as seen in Skyfall (2012).

In keeping with the antics of the secret service agent, the Q Branch stamps include hidden features which can be revealed when using a UV light.

There are also specially designed limited-edition handstamps for pre-ordered first day covers and stamp souvenirs, with one image featuring the renowned quote: "We've been expecting you."

Royal Mail spokesman Philip Parker said: "James Bond is a British icon, recognised throughout the world for decades.

"It's fitting our new stamps celebrate the six Bonds with stylish and evocative designs."
