It wasn't long before fans rushed to the social media site to register their excitement.

"You are scared??? I've just peed myself with excitement," said one.

Mother of God, excited!

Mimicking Ted Hastings' catchphrase, another wrote: "Mother of God, excited!"

Referencing creator Jed Mercurio's liking of killing off main characters in each series, a third quivered: "I hope Jed is good to Steve this year - he's been through the mill!

"Mind you - that's a credit to you as he knows you can pull off anything he throws at you on screen."
