The Doc Martin actor has been praised by many after declaring his thoughts on the current government.

Clunes was talking about his new ITV drama Manhunt, which delves into the investigations into serial killer Levi Bellfield, when he said:

“Thank god we’ve got a police force. Which we won’t have if this current s***estorm of a government have their way.”

Many people tweeted their support for the cheeky actor:

A shocked co-host Phillip Schofield quickly jumped in: "We apologise for that!"

Manhunt stars Clunes as senior investigating officer Colin Sutton, and tells the real-life story of the murders committed by Levi Bellfield and how police came to arrest him for the deaths of Milly Dowler and two other girls in 2004.
