AC-12 will be making a guest appearance on Celebrity Gogglebox as Line of Duty stars Martin Compston, Vicky McClure and Adrian Dunbar have signed up to the series.

The actors are set to feature in a charity celebrity special of the programme which will air tomorrow, Friday 23 October.

The official Gogglebox account tweeted the news, sharing: "All in the line of duty... AC12 take a break from catching bent coppers to #StandUpToCancer."

Teasing what viewers can expect, they also posted a picture of the three co-stars cosied up in a living room together.

Filming is currently underway for the sixth season of the hugely popular BBC police drama after it was suspended earlier in the year due to the coronavirus.

It seems it will certainly be worth the wait as Compston, who plays Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott in the anti-corruption squad, has divulged there is a "massive bombshell" in the upcoming season.

The new series will premiere on BBC One in 2021 and also see McClure and Dunbar return to their respective roles as Detective Inspector Kate Fleming and Superintendent Ted Hastings.

The Line of Duty actors will feature on Gogglebox alongside returning stars Mo Gilligan and his comedian pal Babatúndé Aléshé.

Gogglebox: Celebrity Special for SU2C airs Friday 23 October at 9pm on Channel 4.
