Craig Parkinson as Phil Swann

Viewers will instantly recognise Craig as the dastardly villain DI Matthew ‘Dot’ Cottan in Line Of Duty.

For three series Dot was the ultimate bent copper and ran rings around Ted, Arnott and Fleming making him one of the series’ most beloved characters.

Since then, Craig has been in Indian Summers, Prey and The Mill. But the last time we saw him, he went back to playing a villain in the last series of Doctor Who.

Craig was married to actress Susan Lynch, but they separated in 2019. They share one son.

Scottish actress Simone, 56, recently appeared in EastEnders as Mick Carter’s nemesis Katy Lewis.

Arriving on the scene last year, she revealed she used to work in the same children’s home that Mick resided in.

After he reaches his lowest ebb, he remembers that Katy abused and raped him while they were in the home. Soon, she’s arrested and sent down for 10 years.

Quite a storyline for Simone.

Away from the camera, she’s married to British-Italian actor Raffaello Degruttola and they have one daughter, Skye.

But it’s in Casualty as Senior Consultant Elle Griffiths that Jaye will be best known for.

Starring in the show for three years between 2016-2019, Elle was involved in a long-running feud with Connie (who wasn’t?).

As for 25-year-old Jack, he stars alongside his sister Rebecca (who plays Lydia).

He told The Mirror: “One of the best things about Corrie is that everyone’s so nice, so welcoming.

“So I knew she’d just settle right in, but beyond that, I told her where the canteen was, the toilets, and then she was good to go.”
