Mercurio has remained active on social media throughout lockdown, and has criticised the government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic on several occasions.
He and other members of the Line of Duty cast have previously created spoof videos (filmed remotely) in aid of various charities, featuring guest stars from other crime dramas like Midsomer Murders and Life on Mars.
