LINE of Duty star Perry Fitzpatrick looks worlds away from iconic character DS Chris Lomax on the set of a Channel 4 comedy.

The actor has been spotted filming for new series Hullraisers alongside fellow cast members Taj Atwal, Leah Brotherhead and Sinead Matthews.


Actor Perry, who played DS Chris Lomax in Line of Duty, looks completely different in the new comedy, dressing down in jeans and a shirt.

While he was previously suited and booted, working hard to solve the murder of Gail Vella, he's now the companion of three complicated female characters.

He was snapped walking side-by-side with lead actress Leah Brotherhead, who plays failing actress Toni who is desperate to escape life in Hull.

The star kept it cool in a causal outfit as he laughed and cuddled up to Leah, as he held her arm while she strutted in heels down the street.

They were joined by Taj Awtal, who plays policewoman Rana, and Sinead Matthews, who depicts the third of the group of female friends – Paula.

At one point, Perry could be seen practicing his script, looking intently through the pages as he took a break from the cameras.

The show is said to follow on with the "disheveled, messy and joyful lives" of the three women, according to the Channel 4 synopsis.

It focuses in on character Toni, a wife and mum-of-one, who craves having her younger, brighter years back, and her pals – who are also keen to get out of their boring day-to-day lives.

"The series explores the hilarious and agonising reality of what it is to be a working-class woman juggling work, kids, demanding friends, family and frustrating parents from the school playground – all whilst trying to have some fun too," Channel 4 describe the show.

Aside from Line of Duty, Perry has acted in Flip in This Is England '86 and Flip in This Is England '86, as well as Channel 4 drama I Am Nicola.

He previously told of how he felt it was his role in the show alongside Vicky McClure that caught the attention of Line Of Duty writer Jed Mercurio.

Channel 4’s TV drama about a husband and wife in a dysfunctional relationship was improvised and required the pair to perform intimate scenes.
