Line of Duty's Adrian Dunbar, 62, is lucky with money – cashing in £232k – unlike debt-ridden AC12 boss Ted Hastings

LINE of Duty's Adrian Dunbar is lucky with money – cashing in £232k – unlike debt-ridden AC12 boss Ted Hastings.

The 62-year-old actor plays the Superintendent in the hit BBC crime drama, with Ted up to his eyes in debt after becoming involved in a failed property scheme.

However in real life, Adrian has no such financial woes, as his company Kinlow Ltd which handles his ‘artistic creation’ has just posted accounts showing he has £232,409 in cash and reserves.

This figure is up £53,698 on the previous year and Adrian is the sole director of the business.

The actor set up the business in 2018 and the latest accounts posted on March 26 2021 are made up to June 30 2020.

His Line of Duty alter ego Ted could only wish to be doing so well after finding himself in debt in the series.

He was also under suspicion from his own colleagues after £50k in cash was found in his hotel room.

However, he was cleared of being involved in any organised crime gang – or being the mysterious 'H' – by the end of series five.

Meanwhile, Adrian has landed a new gig with the BBC, and it couldn't be further from the crime drama.

Adrian is set to guest present Have I Got News For You, helming the comedy quiz show which takes an alternative look at the week's headlines.

The Irish star will take his seat as the show's host on Friday April 16.

He will joined by comedian Katherine Ryan and journalist Tim Shipman on the panel, as well as show regulars Ian Hislop and Paul Merton.

The show will return with a new series a week before, with an episode hosted by actor David Tennant, alongside comedian Jack Dee and journalist Helen Lewis.

Line of Duty continues on Sunday, April 4 at 9pm on BBC One.
