Vicky McClure shares her isolation preservation kit

Taking a break from catching bent coppers, Line Of Duty's Vicky McClure shares the boxsets, music, exercises and more that are helping her stay happy and healthy while staying at home

Like so many of us, Vicky McClure was supposed to be working at the moment. She should be in Belfast, chasing bent coppers. But, like most film and television production across the world, filming on the next series of Line of Duty has been suspended.

Until they are back at work and cooking on diesel once again, McClure is instead holed up in her home town of Nottingham. So what is keeping her happy and healthy during this enforced period of isolation?
