Line Of Duty creator Jed Mercurio has thrown fans of the series his biggest tease yet.
Sharing a picture of himself with the show’s main stars to Twitter, Jed teased that they were about to meet the “secret guest stars” of series six.
In the picture, Jed can be seen at a dinner table with Vicky McClure, Martin Compston and Adrian Dunbar.
There are two empty place settings waiting to be filled.

While there are absolutely no clues as to who the guest stars might be, it looked like a good night for the trio of stars.
Martin – who plays AC-12’s Steve Arnott – shared a picture of himself, Vicky and Adrian enjoying a beer in the pub.
Cannae beat a catch up with these two. Next time we’ll most likely be in uniform – or at least Adrian will – I’ll be in a new three piece.

Vicky, too, shared her excitement at meeting up with her LOD pals.
She shared a picture of the gang out on the street and teased fans with the caption: “Hiya!”

Last month it was rumoured that the series will return in 2020 – and with the new cast photo, it surely seems that must be the case!
