Vicky McClure


BAFTA award-winning actor and Confetti ambassador Vicky McClure is coming back to Industry Week to discuss her work on Line of Duty and Our Dementia Choir.


Vicky McClure MBE is a BAFTA award-winning English actor, model and presenter. She is known for her roles as Detective Inspector Kate Fleming in the BBC series Line of Duty (2012–2021) and Lol Jenkins in Shane Meadows’ film This Is England (2006) and its Channel 4 sequel mini-series This Is England ’86 (2010), This Is England ’88 (2011), and This Is England ’90 (2015).

Before This is England, she appeared in another of Meadows’ films, A Room for Romeo Brass (1999), where she played Ladine. She won the RTS Award and British Academy Television Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Lol in This is England ’86 in 2011.

Vicky formed the Our Dementia Choir in 2019, after her late grandmother’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s taught her the healing power of music. She worked on a documentary to raise awareness of the disease, which culminated in a performance in front of 2,000 people at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall. She revisited them in 2020, exploring how the pandemic had affected them. Vicky is also an Alzheimer’s Society Ambassador as of 2018, and has taken part in the Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walks for many years.

In 2022, Vicky made a further BBC documentary featuring other Dementia gatherings and musical support groups from elsewhere in the UK, and brought her own Dementia Choir to perform with Tom Grennan before 20,000 spectators at the Splendour Festival held in Nottingham’s Wollaton Hall grounds.

Last year, Vicky was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the Birthday Honours for services to drama and to charity.
