Huncoat popstar and actress Diana Vickers turns ‘villainous’ in new TV comedy Top Coppers.
Vickers, 24, plays a cyber criminal hacker in the spoof BBC Three comedy inspired by cop shows of the Seventies and Eighties.
The former X Factor semi finalist appears as part of a host of evil cameos from stars including James Fleet, Kayvan Novak and Paul Ritter.
Posting on Facebook, Vickers said the show is ‘full of lots of funny folk and I pop up too, get involved’.
Created by Cein McGillicuddy and Andy Kinnear, Top Coppers follows cops John Mahogany and Mitch Rust as they attempt to rid the world of Justice City from its criminal underworld.
It stars John Kearns, Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2014, and Steen Raskopoulos, 2014 Edinburgh Best Newcomer nominee.
Vickers won ‘Best Newcomer’ in the 2010 Theatre Awards and was praised for her performance in the political play The Duck House alongside comedian Ben Miller.
She next stars in new 1950s-themed play Hatched ‘n’ Dispatched at the London Park Theatre in September.
Top Coppers airs on Wednesdays at 10pm.
