Line of Duty bosses are well known for killing off fan favourite characters without little warning.

DI Matthew ‘Dot’ Cottan (Craig Parkinson) was killed off in series five but not before tapping out a message in Morse code to blow the investigation into ‘H’ wide open. 

The detective had been shot in his chest and although he couldn’t speak he used Morse code to relay the revelation that ‘H’ is a group of people.

As fans look forward to the next series, many fear another detective could be heroically killed off.

  • Line of Duty: Steve Arnott’s death ‘revealed’?

However, actor Martin has hinted his character could be safe as he confessed he “trusts” the show creator completely.

“At this point, we have all got six series out of it and I don’t think any of us could have foreseen that,” Martin told The Herald. 

“The initial idea was three series. Then five. So, the fact it is six? There’s talk already of seven, but Jed takes it one at a time, that is the way he has always done it.

“He has been an incredible influence on my career. I owe my career to Ken Loach and Jed Mercurio.”

Martin admitted he has faith in Jed over the future of his character and wouldn’t “complain” if it was his time to leave.

He continued: “I know Jed wouldn’t kill me off for the sake of it or shock value. It would be because he thought it would be the best way to take the story forward.

“I trust him completely. If it happens, I wouldn’t complain. I would be gutted and miss the guys, but we have got nearly 10 years out of it.”

Line of Duty fans will have to wait a while for the series to return but Martin promised it will be worth the wait.

Martin said: “I don’t want to sound like a band trying to punt their new album and saying this is the best ever but every year, I think, ‘Is this going to be the one that is just not quite as good?’ 

“And then Jed ups it a level. I don’t know how he does it, his consistency is incredible.

“I’m buzzing about where the story is going this year. It is very reassuring to know, ‘As long as we don’t mess this up, we have another hit on our hands.’”

Meanwhile, will Steve, DI Kate Flemming (Vicky McClure) and Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) finally get to the bottom of the ‘H’ mystery?

  • Martin Compston wife: Did you spot this Line of Duty easter egg?

The latest clue was flagged up by Steve in the series five finale when he figured out Dot’s dying message.

“Dot was trying to tell us something before he lost consciousness. He couldn’t speak due to the gunshot wound to his chest, but he could move his hand. Tap tap tap tap. Tap tap tap tap. It’s Morse code. Dot dot dot dot,” he explained.

“The letter H in Morse code is four dots,” added Steve. “‘H’ is not an initial, it’s a clue. Four dots. Four caddies. Four police staff in league with organised crime.”

The detective wasn’t trying to expose one individual’s name as originally thought but trying to reveal that ‘H’ is in a group made up of several members.

Line of Duty season one to five are available to watch on BBC iPlayer.

Prince Charles ‘desperate’ to return to official duties to lead Royals’ coronavirus fight – The Sun

PRINCE Charles is desperate to return to official duties to lead the Royals' fight against coronavirus, a source claimed today.

The 71-year-old is keen to step up in the time of national crisis – with the royal workload all the more heavy after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit.

⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates

An insider today revealed the future king wanted to shoulder more work while the Queen is in isolation at Windsor Castle and unable to conduct official duties in person.

The insider told The Sun Online: “This is a time of huge national crisis and Charles knows the burden of responsibility on the Royal Family to support the country is high."

Charles’ absence through illness has seen son William take on virtually all major Royal duties over coronavirus.

William, 37 and wife Kate, 38 have visited 111 workers, helped to support a Public Health England initiative and offered words of comfort to NHS staff mourning the loss of a colleague.

Prince Charles went into isolation last month after testing positive for the bug.

But he has since already conducted his first duty since recovering – opening the NHS Nightingale Hospital by video-link from his home in Scotland.

The royal praised the NHS as he filmed himself with an iPad from his office.

Give now to The Sun's NHS appeal

BRITAIN’s four million NHS staff are on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus.

But while they are helping save lives, who is there to help them?

The Sun has launched an appeal to raise £1MILLION for NHS workers.

The Who Cares Wins Appeal aims to get vital support to staff in their hour of need.

We have teamed up with NHS Charities Together in their urgent Covid-19 Appeal to ensure the money gets to exactly who needs it.

The Sun is donating £50,000 and we would like YOU to help us raise a million pounds, to help THEM.

No matter how little you can spare, please donate today here

And Charles is keen to share the workload with his son which has been made all the more heavy given Harry and Meghan’s departure from Royal duties.

The source said: "Everyone is acutely aware that the timing of Meghan and Harry’s departure couldn’t really have been worse in terms of its timing.

“That is another reason Charles is keen to return quickly and be front and centre in helping provide support when and where it is required."

The couple overnight revealed their new charity would be called Archewell.

Charles' desire to move back into the fold comes a day after his mother's TV address was watched by more than 24million people in the UK.

The royal source said: "The broadcast underlined how important the Royal Family is right now to the country.

“With his mother unable to play as full a role as she would have in the past, Charles is very keen to return, not least to show his gratitude to the NHS workers leading this fight.

“Obviously no one is going to put the health of Charles at risk but he has been getting better and better day by day and is now in rude health.”

He was reunited with wife Camilla, 72, yesterday as she completed the 14 days in isolation.

Royal Ascot will not take place as a public event in June

Royal Ascot will not take place as a public event in June due to coronavirus pandemic but there are hopes it might be possible to stage the meeting behind closed doors

  • Royal Ascot will not take place as a public event this year due to coronavirus 
  • The meeting may be held behind closed doors if it goes ahead as planned in June
  • A statement said decision had been taken for public health and safety reasons

Royal Ascot will not take place as a public event in June but the track are still hoping it might be possible to stage the biggest meeting of the flat season behind closed doors.

A statement issued by Ascot chief executive Guy Henderson said the decision had been taken for public health and safety reasons.

He wrote: ‘We have reached the difficult but unavoidable conclusion that Royal Ascot 2020 (16-20 June) will not be able to take place as an event open to the public. This will of course be a great disappointment for everyone planning to attend.

Royal Ascot will not take place as a public event but could take place behind closed doors

‘It may prove possible to run the Royal Ascot races behind closed doors, dependent on government and public health policy and the approval of the BHA for us to re-start racing.

‘This would be for the benefit of the industry, our valued partners and suppliers and our television audiences at home and internationally. Planning for this is now our complete focus and we will update on progress as and when we can.

‘Customers who have already paid for entry and hospitality at Royal Ascot will be refunded in full in the usual way as quickly as possible and we will start the process of communicating with them, initially by email, immediately.

‘We thank everyone in advance for their patience and understanding in completing this substantial task given the challenging practical circumstances of the current national lockdown.

‘The pandemic will have a significant financial impact on our business in 2020, along with so many others. Nevertheless, Ascot Racecourse will come through this crisis and we look forward to being able to welcome racegoers back when it is safe to do so.’

Who's Still in the Running in the 2020 Race For President?

Who’s Still in the Running in the 2020 Race For President?

The race for the 2020 presidential election is heating up — and narrowing down. Tulsi Gabbard officially ended her campaign on March 19, endorsing Joe Biden as she did. She followed Elizabeth Warren, who left the race on March 5. And both of their exits were preceded by notable ones from Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker, Andrew Yang, Julian Castro, and Sen. Kamala Harris, who decided to withdraw their names for contention earlier in the race. Here’s a look at the politicians who are still running for commander in chief in 2020.

Joe Exotic’s Husband Revealed What To Expect From The ‘Tiger King’ Bonus Episode

It seems like the world can’t get enough of Tiger King right now — and Netflix is more than willing to give the people what they want. During his second appearance on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show, Joe Exotic’s husband, Dillon Passage teased Netflix’s Tiger King bonus episode, hinting that it would be like a reunion episode. Netflix has yet to confirm the production of this extra episode. Bustle reached out to Netflix for details, but did not receive a response.

Reports that the streaming service was working on more Tiger King content first emerged on April 4, when Jeff Lowe — who currently owns the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, the zoo formerly owned by Joe Maldonado-Passage (better known as Joe Exotic) — told a fan that Netflix was filming "one more episode" of the wild show. In a video for baseball player Justin Turner and his wife Kourtney Pogue, Lowe thanked the couple for watching the documentary series before adding, "Netflix is adding one more episode… [it] will be on next week." The businessman also teased that he and wife Lauren Dropla would be filming at the Oklahoma zoo the following day for the new episode.

Two days later, Passage — who married Maldonado-Passage in 2017 — confirmed that Netflix was making an additional episode of Tiger King during an appearance on Radio Andy. "It’s going to be a live episode, kind of like a reunion," the 24-year-old revealed. However, Passage didn’t have much more information than that to share, as he also revealed that he wasn’t invited to appear. "Netflix didn’t contact me to apart of that," Passage said. "I only spoke with one of the producers a little while about it because I was asking her. I saw an article saying there was gonna be another episode dropped and I was kind of curious."

Passage isn’t the only one who won’t be appearing in the Tiger King reunion episode; representatives for Carole Baskin recently told Entertainment Weekly that the Big Cat Rescue founder — and Maldonado-Passage’s long-time rival — was uninterested in working with the streaming service ever again. "We have not been approached about a new episode and would not participate if asked," Baskin’s team told the outlet in a statement.

It’s also unclear whether or not Joe Exotic himself will make an appearance, given he is currently being held in isolation due to coronavirus concerns. However, Netflix recently released footage of a message from Maldonado-Passage from prison, so perhaps some of that interview will be incorporated into this new episode. You can’t have an episode of Tiger King without the Tiger King, after all.

Lady GaGa Explains Why She Abruptly Ended Her Video Chat With Jimmy Fallon

The ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker had the most awkward phone call with the TV host during a recent episode of ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’ as she asked Jimmy to push back their interview.

AceShowbizLady GaGa is really sorry for awkwardly hanging up on Jimmy Fallon during a live video chat. Days after making headlines for abruptly ending a video call with the host of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon“, the “Stupid Love” singer made a return to the show and offered an explanation for her questionable act.

During the Monday, April 6 episode of the “The Tonight Show: Home Edition”, the 34-year-old singer/songwriter claimed that she wasn’t “quiet ready yet.” She gushed, “I’m so sorry … I really appreciate you being so nice about it, and thank you. I love you, I love your viewers, and everyone at home watching. I just wish everybody well.”

Upon hearing her apology, Fallon kindly answered, “We love you all too and it turned out to be really kind of a fun bit for us and got a lot of people talking and a lot of people excited about what we’re about to discuss tonight.”

During the chat, the “Poker Face” hitmaker also discussed about her belief in “kindness currency” and “financial currency” during the coronavirus crisis. Noting both held an equal importance, she said, “I think there’s a lot of people that are at home right now that are wondering how they can help, and they feel like they can’t, and they don’t know how to. And one of the ways that you can is to be kind.”

Calling the COVID-19 a “catastrophe”, the “Bad Romance” songstress stressed that “kindness is the most important thing.” She added, “We must be compassionate to each other … While you’re being kind and making sure that you know what you have and what you don’t, [it’s important] that you take those moments to have gratitude.”

As for her delayed “very big” news, GaGa shared that she would release a TV special called “One World: Together At Home” in partnership with Global Citizen. Fallon himself would be the host of the huge event alongside fellow late night TV hosts, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel.

“I mean, come on all three of you agreed to join forces for a good cause. I’m so happy [that] NBC, CBS and ABC, everybody’s working together,” the Oscar-winning singer said. “We’ll have artists. We will have lots of different people, we’ll have athletes. We’re also going to have Sesame Street. We’re going to have amazing hosts and actors and the truth is that we’re also going to do a lot of other things that are going to be different and exciting and this is what I really want to do with the show.”

GaGa made the shortest “Tonight Show” interview back on April 1. The “Born This Way” hitmaker appeared to be distracted and busy talking to her assistants when Fallon called her and asked her to share an “announcement you’re going to say tonight on our show.” To his request, she responded, “I can’t Jimmy. I, uh, can’t talk right now. I’m sorry. It’s just a really, really weird time.”

Still, Fallon tried to persuade GaGa by reminding her that “there’s something very big you’re working on that’s going to help people right now.” The “Shallow” singer, however, insisted she “can’t tell you everything right now because I’m still ironing out the details and I have a lot of phone calls to make,” puzzling the TV host.

EastEnders' new £87m set continues construction as it nears completion

Is this ESSENTIAL construction work? EastEnders’ brand new £87m set continues to be built as it nears first stages of completion amid the COVID-19 crisis… with just the Queen Vic left to finish

  • The revamped Albert Square is being built to replicate EastEnders’ old set, which is based just feet away
  • Work on the site continues despite the current COVID-19 pandemic that sees most of the UK in lockdown
  • Those classes as essential key workers are still expected to attend their jobs
  • Construction sites have not been asked to close, so work can continue ‘if it is done safely’ according to the UK government’s website
  • The Elstree set will feature all of Albert Square’s staples, including the Queen Vic pub and the Walford East station – with the project originally intended for completion in August 2018
  • In October 2017 the plan was revised, with the BBC saying the set will cost £86.7 million and not be fully completed until 2023; MPs have criticised the sizable cost of the project recently

The brand new EastEnders set is nearly complete – and was buzzing with activity on Tuesday as work continues amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Construction sites have not been asked to close, so work can continue ‘if it is done safely’ according to the UK government’s website – with social-distancing measures in place and strict rules regarding personal and food hygiene.

Yet the project may not, to some, be classed as ‘essential’ – as the majority of the UK has been asked to stay at home unless absolutely necessary.

Getting there: The brand new EastEnders set is nearly complete – and was buzzing with activity on Tuesday as work continues on amid the COVID-19 outbreak

Lone site workers were spotted in protective gear as they busily went about their tasks, keeping a fair distance from one another.

The £87m Borehamwood set is taking shape, despite the few construction staff on site.

The famous Queen Vic pub is now one of the only major structures left to be finished.

The new Albert Square is being erected next to the old one – which would ordinarily be busy with cast and crew shooting EastEnders.

Reduced staff? A lone contruction worker is pictured on set as the UK continues to enforce lockdown rules for non-key workers 

Big changes: The brand new set features all of Albert Square’s staples, as well as a brand new version of the Queen Vic pub, a block of flats and a railway line

Challenging: According to The Telegraph last year, ongoing maintenance issues on the old set hampered the show’s filming schedule and presented health and safety concerns

But this was deserted on Tuesday, as production has been halted due to the UK’s lockdown.

The BBC was accused of ‘complacency’ over the astonishing £87 million bill for its new EastEnders set at the end of last month.

The project, nicknamed E20 after the soap’s fictitious postcode, is already £27million over budget and is not expected to be fully completed until May 2023, nearly five years late.

MPs said BBC bosses ‘badly’ managed the construction and that they made ‘a serious error’ by failing to consider what project management skills they needed.

Open for business: Construction sites have not been asked to close, so work can continue ‘if it is done safely’ according to the UK government’s website

Rules: Social-distancing measures are in place, as are strict rules regarding personal and food hygiene

Essential? The project may not, to some, be classed as ‘essential’ – as the majority of the UK has been asked to stay at home unless absolutely necessary

Cut-backs? Lone site workers were spotted in protective gear as they busily went about their tasks, keeping a fair distance from one another

Controversial: The new and improved Walford has not come without its detractors, however, as The Sun previously reported that neighbors were left disgruntled by the loud noises of builders working on the set

Scary: Construction for the brand new set also continues as filming for all of the UK’s biggest soaps has been thrown into doubt amid the coronavirus outbreak

The public accounts committee said they secured a contract poorly, drastically increasing costs.

The committee also found that contract negotiations took six months longer than planned, partly because of discussions about what bricks to use for the set. Meanwhile, the corporation spent £50,000 on samples.

MPs added that they were ‘disappointed by the BBC’s complacency in managing this project, particularly in its early stages’.

And they said the BBC ‘underestimated the scale and complexity of the project, including how it would age the new sets so that they either exactly replicate what viewers are used to, or look realistic where there are new locations’.

Investment: The updated set will allow the crew to film in HD as bosses feared filming above standard definition on the current set would allow viewers to notice that the fronts of the some buildings were made of plaster and plywood

Still a long wait: In 2013 the BBC said the new set would cost £59.7 million to be completed in August 2018. In October 2017 this was revised, with the broadcaster saying the set will cost £86.7 million and not be fully completed until 2023

The set consists of a ‘front lot’ – a brickwork replica of the current set – and a ‘back lot’, which will provide extra locations to ‘better reflect modern East End London’.

A BBC spokesman said: ‘We strongly reject the notion that there has been any complacency in managing this project.

‘Like any building work of this scale, there have been challenges along the way including construction market issues beyond our control and working on a brownfield site.’

The extended sound stage sees a new railway line and block of flats in place, replicating the soap’s original set up.

EastEnders’ brand new set was first announced four years ago when it was also revealed that the show’s old 1984 set was in poor condition.

Quiet: The £87m Borehamwood set is taking shape, despite the few construction staff on site

Accusations: The BBC was accused of ‘complacency’ over the astonishing £87 million bill for its new EastEnders set at the end of last month

Complacent? The project, nicknamed E20 after the soap’s fictitious postcode, is already £27million over budget and is not expected to be fully completed until May 2023, nearly five years late

As well as an extension of the famous Albert Square, EastEnders’ new set will feature a brand new block of flats to house all manner of colourful characters.

It is being perfectly built to replicate the old set, which had been in use since the soap first began. 

According to The Telegraph last year, ongoing maintenance issues on the old set hampered the show’s filming schedule and presented health and safety concerns.

The updated set will allow the crew to film the programme in HD as bosses feared filming above standard definition on the current set would allow viewers to notice that the fronts of the Queen Vic and its surrounding buildings are made of plaster and plywood.

Hitting out: MPs said BBC bosses ‘badly’ managed the construction and that they made ‘a serious error’ by failing to consider what project management skills they needed

Criticism: MPs added that they were ‘disappointed by the BBC’s complacency in managing this project, particularly in its early stages’

The HD set’s buildings are made entirely out of brick, however the crew are working diligently to ensure they appear identical on camera to the buildings that viewers are familiar with. 

The new and improved Walford has not come without its detractors, however, as The Sun previously reported that neighbours were left disgruntled by the loud noises of builders working on the set.

The BBC said in response: ‘We are extremely mindful of the neighbouring properties and have ensured residents are regularly updated. We keep all out-of-hours work to an absolute minimum.’

In 2013 the BBC said the new set would cost £59.7 million to be completed in August 2018.

However in October 2017 this was revised, with the broadcaster saying the set will cost £86.7 million and not be fully completed until 2023.

Hard at work: The new set – which is based mere feet away from the old studio – has been in the works for several years at the soap’s studio in Elstree

The BBC said in a statement: ‘The set of EastEnders was built in 1984 and only intended for use for two years. Over 30 years later, the show remains one of the BBC’s flagship programmes and yet is filming from a set that is no longer fit for purpose.

‘The new set will be suitable for HD filming for the first time and extend Walford to better reflect modern East End London.’

Construction for the set also continues as filming for all of the UK’s biggest soaps has been thrown into doubt amid the coronavirus outbreak.

On Monday Prime Minister Boris Johnson insisted the members of the public avoid any social contact, and those who are particularly vulnerable ordered to remain at home for at least 12 weeks.

Coronavirus survivor, 43, says patient on ward died alone after crying out for family for two hours – The Sun

A CORONAVIRUS survivor has revealed the heartbreaking moment he heard a patient cry out for his family for two hours before dying alone.

Craig Farley-Jones was recovering in Tameside General Hospital when he heard his fellow patient's agonising final hours as he fought for his last breath.

⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates

Tragically, the man – aged in his 60s- passed away with no family by his side, MEN reports.

Craig, 43, said: "I will never forget those next two hours for as long as I live.

"He was shouting out, calling for his family by name, over and over while struggling to breathe.

"It had me in tears, it was so hard to listen to.

"I buzzed the nurses, but they told me there was nothing more they could do for him.

"So I lay there listening to his breathing turning into a death rattle, he continued calling out into it stopped and was quiet – he had gone."

The dad-of-two had spent six days on oxygen battling the virus when the man, who had been "relaxed and talkative", began to deteriorate.

Craig said he looked as though he was struggling to breathe and panicked as a group of nurses attempted to calm him down.

The hospital managed to get his children in to say goodbye as it was clear he was "past the point of return".

But he spent his final hours alive calling out for his family before dying from the killer virus.

Craig said: "I know he wasn’t in physical pain at that point, but he was definitely in emotional distress.

"I wouldn’t have let a dog die like that.

"It’s not the fault of the doctors and nurses at all, they were doing everything they could, but in some cases it isn’t enough."

Craig and his fiance Laura Wilson both noticed coronavirus symptoms on the same day two weeks ago including a loss of taste and smell.

But his condition worsened and he was rushed to hospital where medics discovered the disease had spread to his lungs causing pneumonia.

Fearing he would die, Craig even messaged Laura to ask why he had never prepared a will in case the worse happened.

Recalling the pain of battling the bug, the dad said: "The feeling of claustrophobia and panic that sets in is frightening – even a few days later when I was feeling better and due to be discharged, I still had a nagging doubt I might not make it.

"I realised quite quickly you either are nursed to get better and go out the front door, or they nurse you out of the back door in as little pain as possible."

Craig has now posted about the harrowing experience on Facebook in a bid to stop people flouting lockdown rules.

He said: "People need to know when you go into hospital with coronavirus, all the NHS can do is remove any infection that accompanies the virus to give you the best chance to fight it yourself.

"They can’t treat the virus itself – so if you end up in hospital you have to fight for yourself, or sink.

"So please, stay at home and hold onto your loved ones – I’m one of the lucky ones."

It comes as it was revealed police are receiving tip-off calls every five minutes on people ignoring lockdown rules.

The UK death toll today broke the 6,000-barrier after 758 deaths were recorded in England alone on the deadliest day so far.

NHS England confirmed the latest victims were aged between 23 and 102 – with the 23-year-old having no underlying health conditions.

The Department of Health has not yet released figures for all of Britain – so the death total will rise again later today.

Are Dean and Caelynn Married? Ashley I. and Jared Dish on Their Rings

Did they or didn’t they? Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon dished details on Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert’s decision to wear rings amid marriage speculation exclusively on Us Weekly’s “Here for the Right Reasons” podcast.

“They honestly won’t tell us for real, which is really funny, but completely true, [but we think] that they had like some commitment ceremony in Europe,” Iaconetti, 32, explains on the podcast, which releases new episodes every Tuesday. “It’s not a legal marriage, but they’re, like, committed long term.”

Haibon, 31, agrees, noting that Unglert, 28, is “putting so much effort” into his relationship with Miller-Keyes, 24.

“Dean had the reputation of being the F boy and not wanting to be in a committed relationship. And maybe some of that was a little bit true, which Dean has expressed many, many times,” the Rhode Island native explains. “He cares about Caelynn so much. And I think the ring is symbolic … Saying, ‘Hey, you know, I know I have a pass, but I’m here for you. I want to be with you. And that’s why I’m wearing the ring because I want to show you that. I only want to be with you. I don’t even want I don’t want to just say I want to show you.’”

Unglert and Miller-Keyes met while filming season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise. While he left Mexico before the series wrapped, he returned to ask the pageant queen for another chance.

“Normally when you leave Paradise, like, these Bachelor in Paradise couples, they start out the strongest when they’re leaving paradise and then it sort of like disintegrates. But with them we’ve seen it only strengthen over time,” Iaconetti notes.

“I think Dean is sometimes his own worst enemy and [this time] he hasn’t self-sabotaged,” Haibon tells Us. “And I think that’s a very, very good thing, obviously.”

While Unglert previously declared that he had no interest in legally getting married, the Bachelor in Paradise season 2 couple thinks he will change his mind down the line.

“He definitely said that she has made him reconsider the whole institution of marriage,” the “Almost Famous” podcast host tells Us. “Because before her he, like, had crossed that off the to do list. But now he’s like, ‘Oh, OK, I’m maybe into the idea again. … That means a lot.”

Haibon concludes, “I could totally see Dean, you know, four or five years from now getting married.”

For more from Haibon and Iaconetti, listen to the new episode of Us Weekly’s “Here for the Right Reasons” podcast.

Fans of the absurd animate series Ricky & Morty on Adult Swim have something to cheer about.

Rick & Morty returns to Adult Swim that day, and Episode 6 will air at 11:30 PM ET.

Watch the trailer below and mark your calendar.

https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/qPDqQDTnJKE
