Meanwhile, Vicky revealed earlier this year she didn't "know a thing" about the next series of "Line of Duty", which will see her reprise her role of DS Kate Fleming in the fifth season of Jed Mercurio's police corruption drama.

She said: "I don't know a thing about series five... you just hope you're not dead too soon."

And Vicky admits both she and Craig Parkinson, who played corrupt cop DI "Dot" Cotton, were devastated when his character was killed off in the third series.

She told the i newspaper: "Craig was in it from the start and was killed off in series three, and I know it hit him pretty hard that because he loves the show.

"It's alright when it's right for your character but personally, it's a real shame."
