Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Line of Duty viewers were left underwhelmed on Sunday night as the identity of 'H' was finally revealed to the nation.

The wait for the final episode of series six spurred on countless theories over the fates of characters, and the truth about the mysterious 'H'.

'H' or 'The Fourth Man' is the name given to a traitor within the upper ranks of the police force, who has been secretly pulling strings for the OCG (organised crime group) throughout Line of Duty’s run.

It was billed as the moment viewers finally find out the identity of The Fourth Man, with the past six series building to this point.

Fans finally found out 'H' was in fact DI Ian Buckells (Nigel Boyle) during the dramatic 60-minute finale episode, however, people watching the BBC One police drama at home were left unimpressed with the "big reveal".

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned:

Another added: "Buckells? Surely not. Guy couldn't walk and chew gum."

A third person posted: "Anti climax..Buckles. Tell me there is more."

While a fourth social media user moaned: "6 seasons only to announce H is BUCKELLS?"

A fifth viewer ranted: "Hi BBC. If Ian Buckells is 'H' I'd like my TV licence refunded please….especially with a no comment interview."

Buckells was in the first-ever series of Line of Duty as he was appointed the SIO in the case of the disappearance of Jackie Laverty (Gina McKee).

His name had been thrown into the ring as the mysterious 'H' after he messed up the paperwork at the beginning of the season,

Ian was later arrested when the AC-12 found a laptop in his car, which contained incriminating evidence from the investigation into Gail Vella's death.
