Line Of Duty star Martin Compston's Scottish accent has floored us

Martin Compston’s floored everyone after he made an appearance on Sunday Brunch to discuss the upcoming series five finale episode of Line Of Duty.

The 34-year-old actor, who plays DS Steve Arnott in the BBC drama, ditched his character’s South East London accent and spoke in his natural Scottish twang much to the surprise of audiences.

As soon he opened his mouth presenters Simon Rimmer and Tim Lovejoy of the Channel 4 chat show were stunned, with Tim commenting: ‘I’m not sure I like you speaking like that.

‘People get so surprised when you speak.’

Martin joked: ‘Well, not Scottish people.’

While another added: ‘Wow! Anyone else gobsmacked that @martin_compston from #lineofduty5 has a strong Scottish accent on @SundayBrunchC4.’

Martin was born in Greenock in Scotland and is a former professional footballer, having played for Aberdeen and Greenock Morton.

His appearance on TV comes after the star was involved in an accident earlier this week when a truck crashed into his taxi, according to reports.

The Sun claimed that Martin was left ‘very shaken’ by the accident, but was unhurt.

Sunday Brunch airs Sundays at 9.30am on Channel 4.
