Line Of Duty had a very successful night at the National Television Awards on Thursday night, bagging two awards - Special Recognition and Best Returning Drama. 

And Martin Compston teased a further series of the show as he celebrated after the wins.  

The Steve Arnott actor said: 'Jed Mercurio [the director and creator] will only come back if he believes there's a story to tell. The show gets bigger as the audience gets bigger.

'Jed Mercurio does everything for a reason. You all want us all back don’t you?' he teased.   

After the explosive sixth series saw criminal mastermind 'H' unveiled as DSU Ian Buckells (played by Nigel Boyle), Nigel said:  'People still keep calling me H. I get it playing golf, walking down the street. It’s been a bit different. 

Executive producer Simon Heath also added: 'We wouldn't change a word of the ending. There’s something interesting about a buffoon hiding in plain sight.' 

Both Jed Mercurio and Vicky McClure - who plays Kate Fleming - couldn't attend the ceremony due to prior filming commitments. 

Joy: Martin Compston, who takes on the role of Steve Arnott in the gripping drama, neither confirmed nor ruled out an additional series

She said in a heartfelt video: 'Hello there, I thought I had better do a little video just to say - oh my god thank you so much. Sadly not a glamour NTA moment here but gutted I couldn't be there. Absolutely gutted.
