Line of Duty series six continues this Sunday and former star Neil Morrissey has teased his potential return to the cop drama.
Speaking on Tuesday’s (April 6) episode of This Morning, the 58-year-old actor said he thinks it’s possible for him to reprise his role as Nigel Morton.
What did Neil Morrissey say about BBC series Line of Duty?
And he quipped that he wants the show to treat his character to some proper “closure” – by having someone shoot him dead.
He said on This Morning: “I keep telling Jed Mercurio, I’m very much alive. I just say, ‘Just bring me back and shoot me in the face’. That’s what he does to all the stars, doesn’t he?
“Wipe me out! Then that’s closure, isn’t it?”
Who did Neil play in Line of Duty?
Neil was in Line of Duty from the first series, making his final appearance in series three.
