LINE of Duty stars have been BANNED from mentioning anything about season seven as rumours about the show's epic comeback go into overdrive.
The latest series of the much-loved police drama aired its final episode of series six back in May and has left fans have been wondering what is in store for the future.
Since the show hit our screens in 2012, viewers have been desperate to find out the identity of the mysterious 'H' who is incharge of all the corrupt goings on in the police force.
After nine years of guessing who it could be, earlier this year it was revealed that the "fourth man" is in fact DS Ian Buckells (played by Nigel Boyle).
And now that the mystery has been solved, fans want to know if the show – written by Jed Mercurio – will return any time soon as many aren't convinced by the ending.
But actor Ace Bhatti, who plays PCC Rohan Sindwhani, has said admitted that the cast have to keep schtum about it all.
I have no idea, I have no idea. No one knew who 'H' was, none of those things.
During a chat with Gethin Jones and Janette Manrara on Morning Live yesterday, the telly star confessed: "We're not allowed to say.
"I have no idea, I have no idea. No one knew who 'H' was, none of those things."
He continued: "The response to Line of Duty has been fantastic.
"The last series I was in, series five, when it was on television I was in a bar and I had somebody approach me and slip £20 onto the bar and slide it across and say 'are you H?'
"I was just having a drink and I was like no, my names Ace."
Despite 'H' being unmasked, fans are hoping that there could be a major twist around the corner, and it's actually someone else.
Everyone wants to know who 'H' is.
Gethin added: "Everyone wants to know who 'H' is, maybe we already know? Who knows. That's what is so great about the series."
Ace – who is about to star in the second series of BBC's Baptiste – opened up a bit more about why he thinks the format of the show worked so well.
He explained: "I think it helped that the actors didn't know who 'H' was, we didn't know. You don't know who's going to die, you don't know who is going to live, and that's sort of real life in away.
"It helped in not knowing, so you don't play anything, you just play what's on a page."
It comes after season three star Daniel Mays dropped a HUGE hint for season seven last month.
The actor is convinced 'H' is yet to be revealed and he thinks that Marcus Thurlwell could still be alive.
"I don’t think James Nesbitt is dead," he told Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on This Morning.
He continued: "I don’t know this, but I’ve got a sneaky suspicion he might be the main man.”
