‘I think you always plan to tell your story and hope that you’re lucky enough to continue it but ultimately it’s down to how it gets received.

Sope Dirisu, who plays Elliot Finch, previously spoke out about a new run, with the actor, 31, telling the Radio Times they were taking things ‘a step at a time’.

He said he wanted to ‘finish the [second] season, see how people respond to it and wait for the green light for third – if there will be one’.

The second season began with the death of Paapa Essiedu’s character Alex Dumani, with Sope saying he was ‘furious’ about the shock passing.

He explained: ‘I understand you want to keep your audience on your toes and be like, “Nobody’s safe.” 

‘And maybe that’s the best way to do it. Just as you think, “OK, new season’ it’s like, “Oh! He’s dead! What do you mean?!” And for it to be him as well, that was a tough nut to swallow.

‘I’m so glad I have his number and that we’re friends because it would have been a great loss to my life if I never saw him again.’
