Line of Duty fans have been given an extra special treat after the BBC released a first look teaser in which the cast confirms that the brand new series will feature an extra episode.

This means that the sixth instalment of the acclaimed crime drama will have seven episodes instead of six – and therefore will include plenty more to keep viewers guessing until the very end.

The TV news was confirmed in a short teaser clip released by the BBC to get fans excited for the show.

The spoof features popular cast members Adrian Dunbar and Martin Compston, who play AC12’s Detective Inspector Ted Hastings and DS Steve Arnott.

In it, the pair can be seen performing as their alter-egos having a discussion, as the show’s famous theme tune plays in the background.

Ted tells Steve Arnott he “needs a hell of a lot more” to be able to help crack a case. To which Steve replies: "How about an extra episode, gaffer?"
