Line Of Duty stars Vicky McClure and Martin Compston were in good spirits as they were reunited at Soccer Aid for Unicef 2022 at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Steve opted for smart but casual attire, wearing a grey jacket and matching trousers.
He wore a white T-shirt underneath his jacket and sported a trimmed beard.
The glitzy event aims to raise money for the world’s most disadvantaged children and has raised over £60 million since it’s initial beginning in 2006, with last year’s event raising a record-breaking £13 million.

The money raised from this year’s game could help UNICEF provide vaccines, fight malnutrition, and provide safe spaces to protect children in times of crisis, helping kids get back to the childhoods they are entitled to.
It comes after Martin was asked on The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X if the programme was still being made and he told the host ‘we think so’.
Speaking about then future of the show, Martin said: ‘I think there is definitely scope for it.

‘I mean, look, I’m delighted with the response, in terms of people are now really intrigued to see if there is another one, but there’s nothing changed for us in terms of where we’re at after we finish a series.’
He went on to say there was usually a break of at least year between each series before ‘the dust settles and Jed figures out whether there’s a story to tell’.
Series six of the show ended in the spring of 2021 with viewers finally discovering who the mysterious ‘H’ was.
He said: ‘So I’m delighted that people are so excited and so desperate to find out but, as I say, this is what we’ve done after every series so we’ll just wait and see what he thinks.’
The actor added that filming the sixth series was a ‘tough shoot’ because of coronavirus rules, and said ‘it wouldn’t be nice to go out that way’ as it’s such a sociable show.
He said: ‘We filmed the last one during Covid and all that, and it was a tough shoot and kind of miserable, because we were one of the first jobs back and it was literally on set, nowhere near anybody, and then back to your flat.
‘We couldn’t even mix with each other. So I think for us, it wouldn’t be nice to go out that way, we’d like to do one more…’
