The Scot spoke to GMB presenters Ben Shepherd and Kate Garraway, where he gave fans of the show hope that they will continue filming the BBC thriller as early as they possibly can.

"They (the scripts) just seem better than ever and we will back at some point to get them finished and I hope we will be back bigger, better and longer interview scenes the whole, the whole Line of Duty thing."

The actor appeared live on the UK morning show from Las Vegas, stating that he only just managed to get a flight to the States to be with is wife just before Trump imposed a travel ban due to the coronavirus.

While still in the UK at the time, Martin recalled: "I was just in my flat on a Saturday night, learning my lines for the week ahead."

He continued: "The news came through that Trump had suspended all flights from the UK, so I think within 12 hours I was on a flight.

"So, I just made it back by the skin of my teeth. It was bit of a hairy journey over… but eventually they got us home."

Martin's wife and American actress Tianna Chanel Flynn who he married in 2016, is pregnant and the star stressed how important it was for her to be stable.

He continued: "My wife is from Vegas and I just thought at the stage we are at, that my wife needed a permanent place."

He also shed some light on the eerie atmosphere in Las Vegas since the coronavirus.

"It feels quite eerie here, for sure. The last time the country shut down so much was JFK's assassination."

He continued: "But this is the one place that has things prepared, they have a drive-thru pharmacy… the supermarket is OK.

"They don't have anyone panic buying toilet roll because you're only allowed one piece a person."
