STRICTLY bosses are desperate to land a Line of Duty star for the new series – and have set their sights on Vicky McClure.
The Sun can reveal BBC producers are determined to try and benefit from the crime drama’s runaway success.
And they believe 37-year-old Vicky, who plays Detective Constable Kate Fleming in the programme, may be up for a slot on TV’s most-loved Saturday night show.
Our TV insider said: “Line Of Duty is the biggest show on telly by miles so Strictly producers would love to secure one of its stars to take part.
“They think Vicky would be amazing and that fans would love her so she is very high on their list of targets.”
The Sun understands that Vicky’s co-star Shalom Brune-Franklin is also on the radar of Strictly bosses. The stunning English-Australian actress plays DC Chloe Bishop on Line of Duty.
Vicky, 37, has played DC Kate Flemming in all six seasons of Line Of Duty.
