After his friend responds: ‘It’s lovely’ Martin then says: ‘F***ing liars, every one of them.’

This comes after Martin hinted hit BBC police drama Line of Duty could return for a seventh series after the much questioned identity of ‘H’ was finally revealed.
The actor says writer Jed Mercurio is capable of producing enough material to generate another script.
Screen star Martin, who plays AC12’s Detective Inspector Steve Arnott, told The Sun: ‘We sat down with Jed recently.
‘We’ve always taken a year or two between series. This is no different.
‘We won’t do it for the sake of it. We’ll do it if there’s something to tell.’
The popular BBC drama finished in May last year and fans have been vocal about wanting more ever since.
The nail-biting finale saw the mysterious antagonist ‘H’ finally unmasked as DSI Ian Buckells after six series of twists and turns around the storyline.
It comes after Martin said he was desperate for series six of Line of Duty to come to an end after the making of it was drawn out over years due to the Covid pandemic.
Martin, who has appeared in the series since 2012, said he found the build up to the final release ‘too much’, admitting the experience of starring in the most recent season was ‘intense’.

Television bosses commissioned the sixth series in May 2017 and filming begun in February 2020 but stopped a month later when the UK was put into lockdown as a result of COVID-19.
Filming resumed in September 2020 through to November that year, with the series finally launching on BBC One on 21 March 2021.
Speaking on the Table Manners podcast with Jessie and Lennie Ware, Martin, who also stars in new ITV Thriller Our House, said: ‘It started during the end of lockdown, I think there was two episodes in lockdown, but the build up was just too much.
‘By that point we had everybody hooked which was great but by the last episode I was desperate for it to end. It was too much. It is intense.
‘And when it is a returning show like that… which is why I am so chuffed about Our House coming out… and Our House is proper cliffhangers as well… we are on four consecutive nights so it’s going to be that week, people are going to go wild and then it is going to be done.’
