Like many of viewers across the nation, Piers Morgan tuned in for the sixth, and possibly final, series finale of the hit BBC crime drama Line of Duty.

After almost 10 years of following the characters and the gripping corrupt cop drama, the former Good Morning Britain host, 56, shared his excitement on Twitter ahead of the much–anticipated episode.

The father of three shared a photo of the three main characters from the show and complimented the writing and acting of those involved as he eagerly waited for the final instalment of the show.

He tweeted: “Can’t wait for Line of Duty. Just utterly superb television, brilliantly created & driven by @jedmercurio and superbly acted, especially by @VickyMcClure @martincompston #AdrianDunbar” alongside four applause emojis.


But along with many of the show's loyal viewers, he admitted he was also a little disappointed with the episode.

He wrote: “Definately a tad underwhelming. #LineofDutyFinale.” [sic]

Piers included the fatal spelling error which gave away the identity of the infamous ‘H’ in his tweet as a pun, while commenting on the show, however many followers missed the reference.

One user wrote: “Wait, did PM just make a spelling mistake after having spent a career of calling out such errors on Twitter …”

Another agreed: “That’s at least 2 spelling mistakes I’ve seen from you today mate! Are you OK???”

Those who did understand the tweet agreed with his sentiment, asking for another season to improve on the finale, which received mixed reviews online.


A third user added: “I don’t know if that’s partly the point to keep viewers annoyed & anxious for more but I know what you mean.”

Meanwhile, one follower wrote: “Totally underwhelming but realistic. If there was institutionalised corruption then the public certainly wouldn't know about it. Everything would be done to stop it becoming public. That's why the ending is true to real life.”

Some fans of the show approved of the underwhelming finale suggests the show will return for a seventh season, as one person tweeted: “I think its a great ending, just confirms a series 7!! Too many loose ends, Buckles isn't the top man/woman, James Nesbitt in it only for a photo? Not a finale at all (i hope, otherwise it was c**p).”

The entire boxset of Line of Duty is now available on BBC iPlayer.
