Line of Duty star Martin Compston has assured fans that the aftermath of the twist in the upcoming sixth season will be "worth the wait".

The Scottish star, who plays DS Steve Arnott in the hit series, had previously revealed that there will be a "bombshell" twist in episode four of the new season from writer-creator Jed Mercurio.

Compston has now taken to Twitter after reading episode five, telling fans: "It's been a long few months to linger on that ep4 bombshell, I can tell you it was worth the wait..."

Earlier this month, Compston told BBC One's The One Show that season six will "hopefully" be completed by Christmas - despite the challenges of filming during the coronavirus pandemic.
