Law & Order: UK star Freema Agyeman admits she’s ‘too OCD’ to ever become a prosecutor in real life.

Freema plays Crown Prosecutor Alesha Phillips in the legal drama, which returned to ITV1 on Monday night.

Freema told whatsontv.co.uk: “I have newfound respect for people of the law. It’s such an immense world but I’m far too OCD; I’d probably never get out of one file.

“Hat’s off [to them]. It’s hard enough just pretending!”

Season 1 of Law & Order UK is out now on DVD with Season 2 following on February 22.
