Line Of Duty star Martin Compston has warned his female fans that someone is pretending to be him online.
The 34-year-old, best known for playing anti-corruption officer Steve Arnott in the BBC series, has been forced to deny claims that he’s been messaging women on Instagram.
The actor, who is married to actress Tianna Chanel Flynn, took to social media to warn fans about the imposter.
He wrote: “Hey troops this stuff is usually harmless but this fake account apparently been messaging a lot of my female followers for details.”
“Obviously not me thanks for people getting in touch to give me a heads up,” he added.
Thankfully, the fake account has now been removed from Instagram.
The news comes after Line Of Duty was dubbed the most watched show in the UK this year, after the first episode of the show’s fifth season garnered an audience of 11.4 million people.
