Line Of Duty star Vicky McClure admits she’s ‘a worrier and a fixer’

She’s expected to return this year in season six of Line Of Duty.

But there was no shop talk for Vicky McClure on Wednesday, as she chatted about her personality traits on Lorraine.

‘I am a fixer and a worrier – they come hand in hand. There’s positives and negatives to that. I’m not a goody two-shoes,’ she said.

I find the time to do things that make me happy [because] I’m guilty of not doing that,’ Vicky, 36, admitted. ‘Me and [husband] Jonny [Owen] struggle to go on holiday due to our schedules, but you can just find a week to do so.’

She elaborated: ‘I can accept that I can’t fix anything. It would be dishonest of me to say I won’t do it anymore. It’s about accepting who you are. I will give myself an easier time with things.’

This frank discussion follows a chat Lorraine had with presenter Emma Willis, who candidly spoke about her ‘mum guilt’ and admitted that she rarely does anything for herself.

The presenter, 43, was challenged by her hairstylist Louis Byrne on Friday’s episode of Lorraine to reveal what her ‘I can, I am and I will’ is in life to help viewers embrace their identity – much like Vicky did.

Emma, who has three children with rocker husband Matt – Isabelle, ten, Ace, eight, and Trixie, three, vowed to take more guilt-free ‘me time’ as she rarely does anything for herself. 

The former Big Brother host admitted that her ‘I am’ is being a mother, she added: ‘First and foremost, that’s all that really matters and my biggest priority and “my will” kind of feeds on from that.

‘I will allow myself guilt-free time, because I don’t do very often and it’s allowed. It’s healthy for your mind. 

‘Because I have it rarely and it’s something that I find, for me, takes a lot of work to get because I always feel guilty doing anything for myself. I am at the bottom of every daily list.’ 

She continued: ‘My “I can” comes from confidence really, because I’m not an overly confident person. I am a mum – I want to give my kids confidence, but limit it because no one wants arrogance.’

Emma went on to add that her ‘I can’ is that she can achieve things outside the limits she forces on herself. 

She explained: ‘Growing up, I was always quite shy and I was quite scared of having an opinion on things, so I just wouldn’t say anything. 

‘Certain elements of that have continued in to my adult life with work. If anyone says, “Does anyone have any ideas on this?” I sometimes think, “I’m not going to say that because it’s stupid.” 

‘But now I’m like, “Actually, I can have an idea and if it’s not right, it’s not right.” I’m a grown adult and I’m allowed to have an opinion or an idea.’  

Children: She admitted that her 'I am' is being a mother, she added: 'First and foremost, that's all that really matters and my biggest priority and "my will" kind of feeds on from that. I will allow myself guilt-free time, because I don't do very often and it's allowed.'

It comes after Emma revealed at one point she worried her husband Matt would ‘never come home’ after one of his wild nights out. 

The Busted singer, 36, has been open about his past struggles with alcohol and drug addiction and was in and out of rehab for years before becoming sober in 2008.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Emma told how she knew she could not help Matt until he was ready to try and get help himself. 

She said: ‘I wasn’t going to leave him because he had a problem. I wanted to help him, but he had to help himself and I believed he would.’

'Me time': She added on having 'me time': 'I have it rarely and it's something that I find, for me, takes a lot of work to get because I always feel guilty doing anything for myself.'

Emma and Matt got together after she asked him out by calling Blue’s Simon Webbe and telling him to pass on her number to Matt.

She said: ‘What really changed him was our daughter, Isabelle. Isabelle was his real… Oh God, I’m going to start crying. Isabelle was his real focus. He was already doing it [recovery] himself, then she arrived and that made him even more determined.’

Asked what advice she would give to someone in a similar situation, Emma said she is not an addict herself and therefore finds it difficult to understand. 

She said: ‘Your relationship progresses and you realise that there is a real issue, and it’s not just a young kid who has got a lot of money very quickly. But until he realised it had to change, there’s nothing I could have done. Nothing.’
