When asked if the drama will return for another series, Vicky said: "I don’t know, there’s no word of it. I think we’ve all been really honest and said should that happen, we’re all game."

She added: "I’ll just stick with the guys. I think when it comes to a close, it will be a natural close for us all. And we’re very close with Jed, so it’s not a business transaction, do you know what I mean? This isn’t business, this is our lives and we’ve all created careers from it, and we’ve all got a lot out of it."

While she doesn't know exactly when the BBC series will come to an end, she did reveal that it will be a "big blow" when it does. "But, you know, everything comes to an end, and everything’s got a shelf life," she said. "So when that natural end is, is when it is. I’m just loyal to that. I can’t see me going” – and she puts on a posh voice – “‘I’m done, I’ve got a better job, I’m off’, because what’s better than Line of Duty?"

Despite the season six finale drawing in a staggering 15.24 million viewers, writer Jed Mercurio is yet to confirm a seventh series of the show, having previously confessed that there was "no plan in place" for future episodes.
