Line of Duty star Tommy Jessop won a whole host of fans as he joined the show’s team in collecting their award for returning drama at Thursday’s National Television Awards.

Putting on a jubilant display as he wiggled his hips and soaked up the crowd’s applause, the actor then played along with his adoring audience in the room, as he took to one knee in a joke strongman pose, just like TV legend Sir Bruce Forsyth.

The 36-year-old actor, who played Terry Boyle on the sixth series of the hit police drama, making him the first actor with Down’s syndrome to have starred in a prime-time BBC drama, also had plenty of fans watching from home.

‘The winner of the whole of the #NTAs is, without a doubt, Tommy Jessop #LineofDuty,’ tweeted one viewer.

‘Tommy has just made the #NTAs ngl [sic],’ wrote another.

A third simply put: ‘Tommy Jessop is just wonderful #NTAs.’
