Adrian, 62, also told The Sun that Jed keeps the plot details close to his chest – including who the infamous ‘H’ will be unmasked as.

‘Jed does not let us know, does he? Who knows? The twists and turns of Jed’s mind… anybody could be. In the latest trailer, the finger is pointing in all different directions that you would not have imagined.

‘So the clues are there as to who people are. Things will be revealed in this series.’

In a further chat with The Mirror, Adrian addressed Ted Hasting’s trademark catchphrases, admitting Jed writes so many of them into the scripts he ends up having to ‘ration’ them.

All-powerful: 'If Jed wants to, he could just throw me out of a window. So consequently we are all really nice to Jed. He is our best mate,' Adrian said

‘I have to rein Jed back sometimes and say “I can’t just be saying this. I’ll have to cut two or three out of this scene as there are just too many of them”. So I ration them a bit,’ he said.

The new series of Line Of Duty is one of the most anticipated comebacks of recent years, with the BBC releasing an adrenaline-fuelled one-minute teaser for the upcoming sixth series this week.

The explosive trailer shows edge-of-the-seat shootouts, dramatic car crashes and an exciting glimpse of some of the show’s new characters in action.

Trainspotting’s Kelly Macdonald makes her debut as Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson in the teaser, which also sees Martin Compston as DS Steve Arnott and Vicky McClure as DI Kate Fleming back in action.

Some viewers branded the finale of the fifth series, which aired in May 2019 and drew more than nine million viewers, as an ‘anti-climax’, after it was revealed that mysterious criminal mastermind ‘H’ was in fact code for four people.

So fans will be hoping the show finally reveals the fourth person’s identity — and the teaser suggests it might not be a man they are looking for.

This series features seven episodes, the longest to date.

Martin Compston told That Gaby Roslin Podcast this week: ‘In some way, the whole series has been building to this. I think there are a lot of big answers coming in this series.’

Line Of Duty will air weekly from March 21, at 9pm, on BBC One. Also on BBC iPlayer.
