What is Vicky in next?

This is the second ITV drama Vicky has signed up for since the end of series six of Line of Duty.

In the New Year, she will star in Trigger Point, another thriller.

Instead of bent coppers, Vicky stars alongside Adrian Lester as a bomb disposal expert.

She plays front line officer Lana Washington, who is an experienced bomb disposal operative, known as an ‘Expo’.

Lana and her partner Joel (Lester) are faced with a terrorist campaign that threatens London over one summer.

The Expos are at the forefront of urgent efforts to find out who is behind the bombings before fatalities escalate.

What did Vicky say about the NTAs?

Last week, Vicky’s smash-hit crime drama Line of Duty won an award at the National Television Awards.

Sadly, Vicky couldn’t make it but she did leave a message to fans on Instagram.

She said in a video: “Hello there, I thought I had better do a little video just to say – oh my god thank you so much.

“So blessed and so grateful to everybody who voted for the show and everyone who voted for us in the acting category.

“You know we saw that you were all voting and it was so, so beautiful of you all to do that.”
