First look at Line of Duty episode 6 sees horrified Steve Arnott and Ted Hastings arrive at shooting crime scene

THE first look at Line of Duty episode six sees a horrified Steve Arnott and Ted Hastings arrive at a shooting crime scene.

Sunday's episode of the BBC crime drama ended with Vicky McClure's character DI Kate Fleming and evil cop PC Ryan Pilkington in an armed stand-off.

Before the credits rolled, gun shots were heard, but viewers had no idea who pulled the trigger, leaving fans desperate to know Kate's fate.

Now, they have been given their first look at the next episode, however it doesn't give much away regarding Kate's wellbeing.

The pictures see Steve (Martin Compston) and Ted (Adrian Dunbar) arrive in police stab vests, with Steve donning blue surgical gloves too.

The men are joined by DC Chloe Bishop (Shalome Brune-Franklin) and DCI Patricia Carmichael (Anna Maxwell Martin) has the blue lights of their vehicles flash behind them.

The pictures comes as one eagle-eyed viewer noticed Vicky's name is missing from the cast list of the next episode.

Her name wasn't the only one absent from the list though, as Kelly Macdonald, who plays corrupt cop DSI Joanne Davidson, and Gregory Piper, who plays Ryan, are also missing.

It's extremely unlikely all three characters wouldn't feature at all in episode six, so it looks like creator Jed Mercurio is doing everything he can to keep fans guessing.

However, a now deleted trailer which was released ahead of series six's first episode showed Kate and Jo holding their hands up in a scene which is yet to air.

That would suggest that both officers are still alive in the next episode.

Meanwhile Adrian, 62, whipped fans into a frenzy by suggesting there was a clue to who survives.

Line of Duty continues on Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.
