Meanwhile, back in June, Vicky McClure spoke to Chris Moyles about the coronavirus pandemic and how it affected shooting the sixth season of the BBC series.

Asked how far in they were into filming the next instalment of the police drama, she replied: "Oh, we were about four weeks of a sixteen week shoot and you know when you’re just getting into the groove and you’re like 'yeah', and then, that was it."

Quizzed on when she thinks the show might resume, she said: "There is no word, 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 – so you know, there’s movement.

"But the thing is [the show's creator] 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, do you know what I mean? 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."

Despite their concerns, the actors returned to shooting the series in September, with Jed Mecurio writing: "Seems like a very long time between these two takes. It’s great to be back filming".

Shots from this month have confirmed the cast have been shooting scenes in Belfast.
