Line of Duty reunion: Adrian Dunbar has audience in stitches with THAT line

LINE of Duty’s catchphrases worked their way into the public consciousness like a mole in a police department.

They’ve lost none of their power since – as shown when the cast reunited for the first time since the show was put on hold.

Stars Martin Compston, Adrian Dunbar, Vicky McClure and showrunner Jed Mercurio were being interviewed by Gordon Smart at Port Glasgow Town Hall for a one-off fundraiser for Ardgowan Hospice.

A full video of the event will be available exclusively to our subscribers from 7pm on Thursday, March 24.

The squad shared fond memories of the show, secrets and laughs – including Dunbar, who was cooking with gas as he perfectly delivered on one of his character’s most famed lines, leaving the audience in stitches.

Talking about a “little box” of catchphrases, Line of Duty creator Mercurio said: “The lid creaks open, it’s handed to Mr Dunbar, and he delivers the catchphrase… there’s one thing. You’ve got to say it for these people!”

Dunbar replied: “There’s one thing I’m interested in and one thing only, and that’s bent coppers.”

Compston hosted his co-stars at the event to raise money for Ardgowan Hospice, which he is an avid campaigner for.

Other highlights included the trio recreating their viral TikTok dance, a raucous sing-song led by Adrian and Vicky revealing which female co-star she would have “happily kissed”.
