Martin Compston joined Capital Breakfast where he opened up about his relationship with Line Of Duty co-star, Vicky McClure.
Martin recently shared his joy on Twitter about the success of Vicky's show, Trigger Point, ahead of its finale.
When asked whether Vicky would be watching his new show, Our House, Martin responded: "I’m sure she will, she will definitely get a few digs privately on Whatsapp but in public I’m sure she’ll be my biggest fan, and I wouldn’t expect anything less from Vick, she’s a superstar."
Fills me with great joy that this sensitive soul, most likely lamenting the lack of a hot water bottle here, is by far and away the biggest action star on British telly right now. Good luck to the Trigger Point team on the finale 🧨 pic.twitter.com/BrYLd2Po42— martin compston (@martin_compston) February 27, 2022
Martin Continued: "I’ve said this but the fact that this woman who is just obsessed with Sunday lunches, tea and hot water bottles is the biggest action star on British Tele, I love it, I love it man."
On the topic of Line Of Duty, Martin also revealed the name of the team's Whatsapp group.
"Because Vicky’s got these daft words, I think it’s called ‘Shalamandro."
"Vicky just makes up words... the thing is Vicky is hilarious because she’s almost funny, and she comes up with these stupid things, she’s the kind of person to be telling you a joke and then start laughing before she tells you the punchline."
He continued: "When she does that she starts making up words and then she finds them utter hilarious and just because she’s laughing, you start laughing and so yeah, that’s what it’s called, just after her making up random words."
Anyone else obsessed with this friendship?
