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.

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?

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.

Liar season 2: Fans spot huge clue that proves Laura Nielson is innocence – here’s how

In the latest instalment of Liar, the ITV drama delved into the backgrounds of both murder victim Andrew Earlham (played by Ioan Gruffudd) and prime suspect Laura Nielson (Joanne Froggatt). But, as viewers got an insight into Laura’s close bond with sister Katy Sutcliffe (Zoe Tapper), fans jumped to conclusions over the murderer’s identity after spotting a cryptic clue. 

BACK BRITAIN’S BRAVE NHS HEROES – CLICK HERE NOW

The episode began by looking into Andrew’s past and his relationship with Oliver Graham (Sam Spruell).

Viewers were given an insight into the rapist’s dark mind and the influence the acquaintance had on him.

Meanwhile, Laura and Katy’s recent tragic history was delved into as fans began to put together a host of clues and pinpoint the murderer’s identity. 

In emotional scenes, Laura’s father asked his daughter to help him end his life rather than let his condition deteriorate further.

  • Liar season 2 plot hole: What’s wrong with Andrew Earlham’s disguise?

Laura turned to her sister for help but Katy couldn’t go through with it and Laura was left to face the dilemma on her own. 

As her father explained he did want his cancer diagnosis to be what killed him, Laura administered a lethal injection. 

In his final moments, she took off her necklace and placed it around her father’s neck.

However, viewers were in store for a huge plot twist as the episode suddenly jumped forward to a moment at the beginning of the second series. 

When DI Karen Renton (Katherine Kelly) and DS Rory Maxwell (Danny Webb) found Andrew’s body, they discovered the same necklace Laura had given to her father. 

As the detective duo opened up a storage container to find a dead body, Laura’s necklace was scooped up off the floor of the crime scene.

Jumping forward again to Laura’s arrest, the confused rape victim remarked: “You’ve got to be kidding me!”

Karen explained: “We are arresting you for the murder of Andrew Earlham,” to which Laura hit out: “This is bulls**t!”

Referring to the necklace, Rory added: “We found it, Laura,” before she hit back: “Found what? found what?”

As viewers watched this new piece of evidence comes to light, some began to suspect Laura’s sister could be to blame and shared their theories on social media. 

One began: “I’m really thinking that Laura’s sister might have screwed her over and set her up for Andrew’s murder because she’s not forgiven her for helping their dad to die…

“His car key in L’s flat, her necklace in the container and the alibi could’ve been to protect herself!”

Another theorised: “Yeah so it’s Laura sister who killed Andrew. She planted the necklace and Andrew’s car key which she picked up in the hospital locker room to frame Laura. No need to watch the last two episodes.”

“I think the sister is framing Laura for Andrew’s death as she couldn’t forgive Laura for injecting their father. Might even have set Laura up with Andrew deliberately in the first place. Think necklace and Andrew’s car key,” someone else added.

A fourth tweeted: “Laura, the professional killer, leaves her necklace there for police to find,” added another. “Surely to christ that would be a tad suspicious and they’ll realise she’s being framed.”

Has Laura been framed by her own sister or does her past prove she has what it takes to be a murderer?

Alex Jones drops huge bombshell about Matt Baker’s replacement on The One Show

The One Show was struck a huge blow when Matt Baker decided to step down from his role on the BBC show. It means his fellow host Alex Jones will be given a new presenting partner on the famous green sofas but she recently admitted the show still didn’t have a clear replacement in mind. 

Matt shocked viewers when he announced on air he would be leaving the daily magazine show back in December. 

In a candid announcement to those watching at home he explained why he decided to leave his well-known role. 

He told viewers: “I would like to take this opportunity to say that, at this time of year, I like to stop, take stock, reflect.

“The One Show has been part of my life for almost a decade now and I have loved being part of it.

  • Alex Jones hits out at husband during The One Show coronavirus rant

“But I am going to be leaving this green sofa in the spring. It’s time to give someone else the opportunity to see how big-hearted and generous our One Show viewers really are,” he concluded. 

The star’s last appearance on the show is set to be on MArch 31, meaning he only has a couple of shows left before he calls it quits. 

Matt has been self-isolating amid the recent coronavirus outbreak and been assisting Alex with presenting duties via video-call twice a week. 

Now, as he prepares to say goodbye to the show for good, his co-host Alex recently spoke out about how she feels about Matt’s departure. 

Speaking to The Sun’s TV magazine, she admitted: “It’s very sad. From the first day in March, I’ve been up every night thinking about it. We’ve sat next to each other for nearly a decade. 

“I always know what he’s going to say and when he’s going to speak just by the way he moves his arms, or the way he breathes.”

However, Alex revealed the show didn’t yet have a replacement lined-up for Matt and noted how whoever took his place need to be “the right person”.

She explained: “We decided that we aren’t going to rush into a decision of who to replace him. Matt nailed it, but it’s a hard job. And it’s got to be someone I can have a laugh with.”

Alex said: “We’ll probably have guest hosts a week at a time over the summer. We’ve been racking our brains and there are lists and lists [of people], but I think the right person will become obvious in their own way.

“There are loads of presenters and comedians I would love to see doing it permanently – my dream co-host is an amalgamation of different people – but they have got commitments. I’m hoping the universe will send the right person.”

Luckily, Alex seems to have no plans to quit the show herself and seemed keen to stay at the helm of the weekday BBC offering.

Patrick Kielty, Michael Ball and Chris Ramsey have all been amongst those who have guest presented with Alex in recent months.

Could one of them be signed-up to replace Matt for good, or could the show look to appoint someone new entirely?

The One Show airs weekdays at 7pm on BBC One.

Coronavirus symptoms: What to take for coronavirus?

Scientists are working around the clock to find and perfect a cure for the deadly coronavirus. The symptoms are similar to the flu, but coronavirus is caused by a virus that normally only infects animals. Since the virus is new, very little known about the disease – and the cure. So if you think you have coronavirus, what should you take?

What are the symptoms of coronavirus?

The NHS website is now advising not to leave your home if you have either:

  • A high temperature (if you feel hot to touch on your chest or back)
  • A new, continuous cough (coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours)

  • Coronavirus and paracetamol: Can you take paracetamol for coronavirus?

What should I take for coronavirus?

You should take paracetamol to treat the symptoms of coronavirus, unless your doctor has told you paracetamol isn’t suitable for you.

Ibuprofen is similar to paracetamol but has anti-inflammatory effects, which caused some concern online at first.

However, there is no strong evidence that ibuprofen will make coronavirus worse.

You also need to stay hydrated, so drink lots of water even if you don’t feel like eating or drinking at all.

With fevers, you lose a lot of water through sweat.

If you fail to rehydrate yourself, you could end up in hospital dehydrated and infected.

What do I do if I think I have coronavirus?

If you are showing symptoms of the virus, use the NHS 111 coronavirus online service to find out the likelihood of you having coronavirus.

The online service will also tell you what to do next.

Use the online service before trying to call NHS 111.

You should only ring if you are unable to access the online service.

  • Lockdown exercise: The eight exercises you can do at home

What do I do if someone I live with is showing symptoms of coronavirus?

If someone you live with is showing symptoms – a continuous cough, or a high temperature – you also need to self-isolate.

You need to stay at home in a room alone for 14 days.

This is because it can take 14 days for symptoms to appear.

If you start to get symptoms, then you should self isolate for seven days from when they start.

If you don’t get symptoms, you can stop self-isolating once the 14 days are up.

From then on, you will be able to go out for essential trips, such as going to buy food.

How do you self-isolate if you live with other people?

The NHS self-isolation advice says:

  • Try to keep two metres (three steps) away from each other
  • Avoid using shared spaces, such as kitchens or bathrooms, at the same time as each other
  • Open windows in shared spaces if you can
  • Clean a shared bathroom each time you use it, for example by wiping the surfaces you have touched
  • Use a dishwasher if you have one – if you do not have one, use washing-up liquid and warm water and dry everything thoroughly
  • Do not share a bed, if possible
  • Do not share towels, including hand towels and tea towels.

However, after the tragic boat party that claimed the life of Dennis Rickman (Bleu Landau), Phil has been noticeably absent from the Square but is set to return very soon.

While partygoers enjoyed the festivities, Phil and Keanu were involved in a heated confrontation that spilled over into the control room.

As the pair fought, Phil caused the boat’s steering to go out of control which ultimately led to the crash and Dennis’ death.

He continued: “It would be for the prosecution to show that the actions of Phil were reckless and that he could have reasonably foreseen that some other person was at risk of physical harm because of what he did.”

Coronavirus chaos: Mental health tips for those struggling with coronavirus isolation

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s strict measures against the spread of coronavirus now call for Britons to remain home at all times and only leave for essential shopping, key jobs or to care for dependents. These measures could be hard for some, with the sudden change in everyday schedule.

So far lockdown measures are in place for three weeks, with a review at the end of this period.

The review will determine whether an extension to the lockdown is required, or whether some measures can be lifted.

Not seeing family and friends, losing your regular routine and being stuck in the same place for a long time can take its toll on our mental health.

Professor Jayashri Kulkarni, Professor of Psychiatry from Australia’s Monash University gave Express.co.uk some tips on how to remain positive while being confined to the same space for an extended period of time.

  • Asymptomatic definition: What does asymptomatic mean?

Get into a routine

Set yourself up a schedule to prepare in the morning, eat nutritious, food at set times and be consistent with bedtime.

Treat your time as if the lockdown was not in place, with a routine for separate tasks.

Writing down what to do when can be a tactic to make sure you stick to this and give structure to your day.

Exercise is a must

Whether home exercise videos or meditation, every little helps.

Lots of gyms, personal trainers and more have been offering online classes and sessions for those wanting to exercise after gyms were told to close.

The Prime Minister has also said one trip outside for exercise is permitted, so going for a run or walk – while still maintaining social distancing – could be good to prevent feeling stir-crazy.

Fight the boredom

As tempting as it is to binge on the latest TV shows, try to try something different.

Why not try writing, painting, cleaning out cupboards or even learning a new language to protect your mental health.

Cross stitch kits, painting by numbers or even online coding classes are available for those looking to indulge in a new hobby.

Change up your surroundings (if possible)

If you can, move around your living space and mix up where you sit, exercise and work to make sure you’re not staring at the same walls all the time.

Try and separate work and home if you can, so you are not working in the same space which you sleep in.

If you are working from home, when you finish work, make sure you act as though you would if you were in the office – don’t check emails or continue to work past your usual finish time.

Keep in touch with family, friends and colleagues

You may be physically confined but this does not mean you should isolate yourself mentally.

Whether by video or voice, keep in touch with those who usually surround you.

Whether a lunch date or a quick catch-up, harness the incredible ability we have at our fingertips.

Netflix houseparty is a Google Chrome add on which can enable people to watch a film together with a chatroom, meaning you can share the experience with friends and family despite being separated.

Limit screen time

Don’t get consumed by the COVID-19 coverage plastering the news, limiting the amount of time you spend browsing will have boundless benefits to your mental attitude.

Lastly, take one day at a time

Try to focus on the immediate future rather than looking too far into the future to help maintain a positive attitude.

The measures in place are only for the time being, not forever, so while it may be hard there are better times on the horizon.

EastEnders spoilers: Gray Atkins twisted fate ‘sealed’ in killer Chantelle twist

Viewers have watched over the last year as EastEnders’ Gray Atkins (played by Toby- Alexander Smith) has abused his wife Chantelle (Jessica Plummer), not just emotionally but physically too. It all came to a head last week when Chantelle was left so badly beaten she was unable to pull herself up off the floor. But as the pressure mounts on Whitney Dean’s (Shona McGarty) murder case, could Gray attack Chantelle to the point of no return?

Gray has been struggling under the stress of working on Whitney’s murder case after he was suspended from his job. 

Viewers watched as Chantelle told Gray, even if he wasn’t working at the company, he really needed to help Whitney out. 

The pressure of being told what to do from all angles left Gray at his wit’s end.

Gray was left believing Chantelle had been talking to her dad Mitch Baker (Roger McGriffith) about their personal life. 

READ MORE

  • EastEnders spoilers: Chantelle Atkins ‘cheats’ on Gray with new lover?

Gray was left horrified when Mitch revealed Chantelle hadn’t said anything at all and it was all led by him, but the damage had already been done. 

Last week Gray beat Chantelle so badly she wasn’t able to get up off the ground where he left her. 

Chantelle has always tried to forgive her husband in the past for his behaviour, even when he raped her just after Christmas, but this time was different. 

The wife has been struggling to forgive Gray for the attack and this means Gray has lost some of his control, which can’t possibly end well. 

Gray did have a breakthrough with the case, despite his home life crumbling, when he discovered Leo King (Tom Wells) had been living in Whitney’s loft.

Gray was left convinced this was enough to prove Whitney was under threat, securing her innocence. 

This week, the pressure will be ramped up as Whitney returns to Albert Square on bail.

Gray is already resentful of the residents on Albert Square for pushing him to help Whitney in the first place, but now the spotlight is solely on him.

Piers Morgan savages Matt Hancock in coronavirus row: ‘Don’t insult my intelligence’

Piers Morgan, 54, was on hand to present today’s edition of Good Morning Britain alongside news anchor Charlotte Hawkins, 44, and resident health expert, Dr Hilary Jones, 66. Matt Hancock, 41, spoke with the presenters about the ongoing coronavirus outbreak hitting the UK and tried to give perspective on how the government was trying to prevent the spread. During the interview, however, the politician was left squirming as he clashed with the host on several occasions.

One of the main queries Morgan had was about whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 55, was going to “lockdown” the country as people continue to struggle with social distancing.

As the Health Secretary claimed the Government’s position had been the same all along, the host strongly disagreed.

Raging about the “herd immunity” plan which was suggested at the beginning of the outbreak before social distancing was implemented, the presenter claimed the politician was “insulting his intelligence”.
