Line Of Duty’s Martin Compston admits his ‘head is bouncing’ after boozy bash

Martin Compston admitted to "not feeling too clever" after he'd celebrated Josh Taylor's boxing win at the weekend.

The star, 36, who is better known for his role of DI Steve Arnott on the hit series Line Of Duty, certainly seemed to be enjoying some down time away from filming as he partied away into the early hours.

Although, according to his recent social media posts, he may have overdone it after admitting his "head was bouncing" following a booze-fuelled session to honour fellow Scotsman and boxer Josh.

Josh, who is from Prestonpans, east of Edinburgh blew fans away with his Vegas performance in the ring against Jose Ramirez.

The win now means he holds all four world title belts which was a worth cause for celebration in the eyes of Martin.

Sharing footage to his Instagram story which included his wife Tianna Chanel Flynn and friends partying, he penned: "Fair to say the heads bouncing but what a night.

"An incredible achievement."

He added: "Next fight will be one the biggest in the world and the biggest in Scottish boxing history.

"On a separate issue Instagram stories should have a breathalyser installed."

In a follow up post, he called for Josh Taylor to be treated in the same manner as sporting legends Chris Hoy and Andy Murray – who have both received knighthoods.

Martin said: "Sir Chris Hoy, Sir Andy Murray, tell me this man doesn't deserve his place among them and not give a f**k at the same time @JoshTaylorBoxer."

In the background, Josh's victory chant was sang loudly by fans: "Here We F***ing Go."

Last month, Martin spoke out to tell fans that he sympathised with viewers who were less than impressed with the grand finale of Line of Duty.

The suspense had mounted throughout series six, with fans desperate to figure out the identity of the corrupt member of the OCG known as H.

It was revealed that Ian Buckells, played by actor Nigel Boyle, was the person behind H.

A few days after the hype had died down, the actor took to Instagram to address concerns, explaining that he "fully understood" the backlash from critics.

He began: "Hey folks now the madness has slightly died down just want to thank everyone who reached out about last night and the series as a whole, we've been blown away by the reaction and love for the show.

"Fully understand it wasn't the 'urgent exit' type ending many were hoping for but we really appreciate you sticking with us."

Martin added: "Felt many emotions last few days from the excitement and anxiety of the hype to the relief that it's over.

"Right now I just feel immense pride our show that started on BBC2 Wednesday nights has just smashed every overnight drama record since they began."
