Vicky, 37, has starred in the popular series created by Jed Mercurio since it started in 2012.

She told the Sunday Times: “We’ll keep going until the audience wants it to end.

“I’ll be devastated the day it ends.

“To be involved in a job with this much love for it, well, you never expect that.”

The cast and crew have recently finished filming series six, with fans excitedly waiting for an airing date.

Vicky mused: “How much longer can it keep going? Sometimes you think, has it run its course?

“Every time we go back, we go, ‘What’s Jed going to come up with?’

“But he has always got something up his sleeve.’”

The actress plays a member of AC-12 – the notorious police anti-corruption unit – alongside Adrian Dunbar and Martin Compston.

And the camaraderie between the trio is clear to see both on and off screen – which came in handy when they filmed the latest series.

Strict social distancing regulations meant Vicky was filming in Belfast for a solid three months away from her friends and family.

She added: “I’ve never been away for that long before.

“Everything in Belfast was shut, we had nothing to do, but we had each other and it really did get us through.”

Earlier this month show bosses confirmed series six will be the longest ever.

The BBC Press Office’s official Twitter page delighted fans by revealing series six would consist of seven episodes rather than the typical six.
