Earlier this month, Line Of Duty fans claimed to have pointed out a ‘huge spoiler’ after show creator Jed Mercurio shared a snap from filming.

The writer, 54, took to Twitter to share a collection of photos of DS Steve Arnott, Ted Hastings, played by Adrian Dunbar, and DI Kate Fleming, as they playfully posed on set.

Yet eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out that DS Steve Arnott had lost his ‘sergeant stripes’ from his uniform as they questioned whether he had been demoted or was going undercover.

Elsewhere other fans came up with another bizarre theory as they noted Ted Hastings was stood in front of a piece of graffiti which had the letter H.

Posting a zoomed in picture with a red ring around it, a Line Of Duty fan commented: ‘Massive spoilers on wall.’

In the most recent series five finale, creator Jed dropped the bombshell there was not just one super villain H but four caddies.

Steve discovered the vital clue when a clip of DI Matthew ‘Dot’ Cottan’s dying declaration was played during AC-12 boss Ted Hasting’s interrogation with Patricia Carmichael (Anna Maxwell-Martin). 

Line Of Duty resumed filming in September after a five-month hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The BBC police drama suspended shooting for series six back in March, but leading actor Martin returned to set to shoot socially-distanced scenes last month.  

Show creator Jed thanked fans for their ‘patience’ and assured that the cast and crew are aiming to have the sixth season back on air ‘as soon as possible’.
