Line of Duty season 5 spoilers: Stephen Graham teases H’s identity ahead of epic finale?

Line of Duty concludes tomorrow night on BBC One and viewers are hoping to find out who really is the mysterious H. 

Tonight, Stephen Graham, who played John Corbett/Clayton in the popular police drama joins Jonathan Ross on his ITV chat show to discuss the nations biggest quandary right now. 

And Jonathan wasted no time in getting to the nitty gritty when he will ask his guest whether or not he knows who H is. 

“On my ma’s life, no,” the actor will reveal. “I’m serious. I don’t know. I read the script but I’m not giving anything away.” 

Stephen’s character was an undercover police officer, and questions were raised about whether or not he had gone rogue. 

Nevertheless, he was trying to find out who H was and who was the one pulling the Organised Crime Group’s (OCG) strings. 

Despite Stephen being tight-lipped, there have been several suspicions flying around this week regarding the identity of the corrupt copper. 

So much so, there have been suggestions that writer Jed Mercurio could be bringing back a few familiar faces for an epic finale. 

Professor Elizabeth Yardley, Director of the Centre for Applied Criminology at Birmingham City University has explained her theories surrounding the possibility that Detective Chief Inspector Tony Gates’ (played by Lennie James) is in fact alive and could be H. 

She spoke to Express.co.uk and said how the deceased character, who was the leader of TO-20 and last seen in series one could be making a comeback in an almighty twist no viewer would have ever expected. 

Meanwhile, there is an alternative theory involving DCS Patricia Carmichael (Anna Maxwell Martin). 

She made her debut last Sunday night in episode five when she was pulled in to interrogate Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) after he was arrested for conspiracy to murder John Corbett/Clayton. 

Having to be interviewed by a senior, she instantly riled viewers up with many claiming she was out to frame fan-favourite Hastings. 

Alongside this, Gill Biggeloe’s (Polly Walker) behaviour has also been raising eyebrows. 

After befriending Hastings and getting romantically involved in him, the PCC Senior Legal Counsel has made no secret of her intention to shut down AC-12’s case as quickly as possible.

During one scene last week, she encouraged Hastings to take earlier retirement in order to save his reputation. Could this be a cover story for her involvement with the OCG? 

Who do you think H is?

Despite the outcome of tomorrow night’s episode, Line of Duty is not going to end with series five. 

Before the BBC started airing the latest series, they had announced the commission of a sixth series. 

Lord Hall stated: ““I am very excited to say there’s not one but two more series of Line of Duty. So hooray for AC-12!” 

And earlier this year, Jed told Radio Times: “I have got an idea of how things will conclude or, more accurately, the kind of story we need to get into for that to be dramatised.” 

What could be in store for fans for series six?

Line of Duty concludes tomorrow night at 9pm on BBC One.
