The BBC's chief content officer Charlotte Moore has revealed that she is planning to speak to Line of Duty creator Jed Mercurio about a possible seventh series.

The sixth series of the cop drama has delivered blockbuster ratings for BBC One over the last seven weeks, with last night's final episode drawing a record-breaking overnight audience of 12.8 million viewers.

The episode appeared to finally reveal the identity of the mysterious 'Fourth Man' - a storyline that had been running since the first series - casting doubt on whether the show will return.

In a statement today, Moore said: "Addictive event television, Line of Duty has kept the nation guessing for the last seven weeks, so it's no surprise that last night's jaw-dropping finale set a ratings record.

"Jed Mercurio is a master of his craft, and I would like to congratulate him and the entire cast and crew for delivering such an incredible drama series.

"I'm looking forward to having a conversation with the team about where we go next and what the future of the series might be."

Taking to Twitter after the finale aired, Mercurio posted a picture of the AC-12 logo alongside the cryptic message: "Carry the fire."
