However, Adrian rushed to remove the post after fans pointed out that it was a huge spoiler for next week's episode. He then followed it up with a second tweet that read: "Ahem….. Seems my last one might have been a little 'too soon.'"

While some fans were left disappointed that he had given away his character's fate, others thought it was obvious that he had not survived.

"A spoiler!? But then you were stood next to the van. It would be quite the story if you survived that!" one wrote, while another said: "His arm was laying on the floor, do you know many one armed bomb disposal people?"
