McClure wrote: “I mean who better to share my birthday with than my partner in crime!!!!

@mrmartincompston. We were planning a party with us being together filming @bbclineofduty but we’ll have an even bigger one now when we get back to it!”

Filming was halted on the latest series of the show in March due to social distancing guidelines.

Line of Duty’s official Twitter account issued a statement saying: “In light of the spread of Covid-19, after much consideration, @worldprods are suspending filming of #LineofDuty S6 with the support of the BBC.”

Dunbar, 61, who plays Superintendent Ted Hastings to This Morning recently: “We were a month in, and we had to stop, we had to go away.

"I'm kind of worried to tell you the truth, about what's going to happen...because a lot of us are eating quite a lot.

"Vicky McClure is up in Nottingham and she's on Rich Tea, you know what I mean?
