“Today as a throw away comment I said maybe H will be James Nesbitt seeing as he was a bent copper in bloodlands,” a fan also tweeted. “Never expected he'd then feature in the episode tonight! #LineOfDuty”

Another wrote: “Found the new caddy. Applying for AC-12 as we speak. #LineofDuty.”

While other fans of the show took to social media to express how pleased they were that Nesbitt had joined the series six Line Of Duty cast.

“James Nesbitt showing up on Line of Duty is such a perfect casting, you almost feel you’ve already seen him in it,” they said.

“James Nesbitt is perfect for Line of Duty – hope we get to see more of him than a photo,” another added with a laughing emoji.

Contrary to some fans who were overjoyed by the appearance of James, other megafans were disappointed that he may be ‘H’ claiming it would be a ‘let down’.

“I will be rather disappointed if it turns out that H is the newly introduced character played by James Nesbitt,” they said. “All that guessing we’ve been doing, reading something into everything we’ve seen and heard, will be nothing if it turns out to be a new character.”

“If James Nesbitt is H that will be the biggest let down ever,” another added. “I hope he just makes a cameo appearance as he has the reverse Midas touch on everything he is in #LineofDuty.”
