LINE of Duty’s Adrian Dunbar is hoping to record his first album.

The actor — Supt Ted Hastings in the hit BBC police drama — will head to a studio later this year after being approached by music bosses.

Adrian, 60, said: “I’m hoping to do something in the recording studio some time this year and I’ve had a couple of approaches about doing things.

“I was in bands many years ago, singing backing vocals and all the rest of it.

“I just never get a chance to do any of that because I started acting and you focus on other things.

“But I’ve always kept it going and I’ve always done gigs with friends of mine in Ronnie Scott’s over the years.

“It’s kind of country jazz really. I like stuff that straddles the easy listening, country jazz sort of stuff.”

Adrian also plans to tour the UK once his debut album is out.

He added: “The would be to do a few gigs. I’ve done a few gigs before, I had a band some years ago and we used to do a lot of gigs around the place, which was good fun – we did a lot of gigs around Bundoran, all the guys, the members of the band were from that area.

“We used to do lots gigs in and around there and now and again we’d go up to Belfast and do a couple of gigs, so hopefully we can get that back together again, you know?

“But that tour will be on the back burner a bit until we get an album together. The idea would be to get an album together and then do the gigs off the back of that. I could be in the studio this year, if everything works out I could be.”

He is due to film series six of Line Of Duty with Vicky McClure in February.
