Line of Duty's Martin Compston expertly claps back at troll over SNP video

Line of Duty star Martin Compston clapped back at a Twitter troll who questioned his Scottish roots.

The actor, who played Steve Arnott in the BBC drama, appeared in a political video where he backed Nicola Sturgeon, urging fellow Scots to vote for the SNP in today’s election.

However, this confused one follower who took the opportunity to ask where in the country he’s staying in at the moment.

They penned: ‘Hi mate just saw your video for the SNP, quick question, what part of Scotland do you stay now?’

Having absolutely none of it, Martin quote-tweeted the message, sharing his exact location just in case we were all wondering.

‘Currently staying in Edinburgh where I’m working for next 4 months but I’ll get back to my place in Greenock on my days off Dan,’ he said.

Jed’s remark caught the eye of ITV’s Lorraine Kelly, who jokingly assumed he was directing the remark at her.

Quoting one of character Ted Hastings’ (Adrian Dunbar) most iconic sayings, she added: ‘Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the wee donkey @jed_mercurio – I thought you were talking about me!’
