Looks like I could have a pretty cosy life with Steve Arnott


I don’t mean to alarm you, but the latest series of Line of Duty is nearly over. So you only have a couple more weeks when it’s socially acceptable to talk about the cast and how obsessed you are with them. Last week, we dived right into the love lives of all the cast members, so now it’s time to talk money – what are the net worths of all the Line of Duty cast?

In an interview ahead of the last season, Vicky McClure, who plays Kate Fleming, confirmed that the cast members are paid the same, despite their airtime. She said: “I know I’m on the same pay as Adrian (Dunbar) and Martin (Compston). It doesn’t matter who gets the most screen time. We all come as a team. It’s not even a discussion. I’d be questioning what kind of production it was if that wasn’t the case.”

So, because we know you’re hooked on the ins and outs of everything Line of Duty, here are the net worths of the all the main cast members.
