Keith Atack was a member of the 1970s pop group Child, alongside his twin, Tim. The band also consisted of singer Graham Bilbrough and guitarist Dave Cooper.

When the group eventually split up, Keith and Tim Atack ended up becoming session musicians. They also formed two singing duos, with one called Atack, and the other The Duel.

At one point, Atack’s dad formed an Eagles tribute band, named Illegal Eagles. To this day, it remains active.

Taking to the comments on his birthday post, one fan asked: “Is that Keith from pop band Child? Bringing back memories from my teenage years. I’m now in my sixties.”

“I was obsessed with Child when I was 14/15, especially your dad,” another admitted. “Posters all over my wall, even did a talk in English class with Child as the topic. Good memories.”

A third gushed: “Had a major crush on Child. Saw them in Southhampton back in the day… Happy birthday Keith!”

“Happy birthday Keith,” another fan pitched in. “‘Nine Lives’ is a great song. Emily will always be a daddy’s girl, it’s a cool thing to be.”

Atack also took to her Instagram stories to share more photos of her and her dad.

Before Keith’s birthday post, The Inbetweeners star hadn’t posted a photo of her and her father since June 2021. At the time, they were posing for a red carpet event.
