Line of Duty star Vicky McClure has updated avid fans on when they'll get back to set after production halted amid the coronavirus crisis.

The Jed Mercurio-penned series has earned a dedicated following, with its fifth and most recent season winning yet more critical acclaim.

But DI Kate Fleming actress Vicky told that she doesn't know when filming will resume.

Expected to air in September this year, fans are desperate to know a new date.

Chatting to Chris Moyles on his Radio X show, Vicky revealed: "There is no word [on when filming will resume].

"I don't know. You know, I'm hearing lots about certain productions   - obviously the soaps are being quite vocal about...they're going back I think next week.

Mirror Online has approached the BBC for word on when Line of Duty will resume filming.

She continued: "The thing is, Jed Mercurio - who writes, produces and is our showrunner - he was a doctor before he was a writer, so he's not going to cut any corners.

"We're going to make sure that when we go back, it's safe to do so, so when that day is, I don't know."

Adrian says filming may not get back on track until 2021

Co-star Adrian Dunbar left fans crestfallen after  he told Andrew Marr that the show may not get back to filming until 2021.

"I think [filming in 2020] is still something that is in doubt," he said, "A lot of people are working very hard to come up with codes of practice within the TV industry.

"Until testing, trace and isolate is put into place in wider society it is going to be hard for anyone.

"We can't make productions in a bubble. The cast and crew go home and mix with others. They can't work in isolation."
