Fans have been gripped to the edge of their seats to find out the identity of 'H' and they haven't got long until they find out, as the finale of Line Of Duty airs on Sunday 2 May.

Ahead of the final episode of the series on BBC One, bookies have released the latest odds and it looks like Patricia Carmichael is favourite to be revealed as 'H'.

The love-to-hate copper currently has odds of 2/1, followed by Chief Constable Philip Osborne who has odds of 4/1 to be unveiled as the mysterious fourth man.

Third in line is Ted Hastings at 8/1 while Marcus Thurwell ranks in fourth place, at 11/1.


Those also being considered by fans to be the missing corrupt officer are Jo Davidson at 14/1, Andrea Wise also at 4/1 and Ian Buckells at 16/1.

Right at the bottom of the pecking order is Steve Arnott, with odds of 33/1, while none of the above ranks in at 4/1.

Betfair spokesman Sam Rosbottom said: "Line of Duty fans have been obsessed with finding out who H is for years – and mother of God, it is the show's current big baddie Patricia Carmichael who is leading the way in the betting at 2/1, closely followed by Cheif Constable Philip Osborne at 4/1."

This comes as stars of the show Vicky McClure, who plays DI Kate Fleming and Martin Compston, who plays DI Steve Arnott, shared some of the fan theories about the identity of the mysterious 'H'.

AC-12 have been on the hunt for bent coppers for years and now they are nail-bitingly close to discovering who the top corrupt officer is.

Talking on The Jonathan Ross Show, Martin, 36, teased: "All these wild theories… some are pretty close!"

When asked about DCS Patricia Carmichael tapping her pen four times, seemingly in Morse Code for the letter 'H', Vicky, 37, added: "Hmm that's very interesting, yeah. Very, very interesting…"

Host Jonathan, 60, asked them about a plausible-sounding clue that disgraced lawyer Jimmy Lakewell had said “look beyond the race claim to find H” – fans realised that if the letters for “race claim” were taken out of Paricia Carmichael’s name, it left just an H."

Martin himself said he nearly bought into one clever theory, as he expressed: "Do you know what I love about that one?

"It's so spot on, but that line never got said… blew my mind. Jed said, 'No, that line never happened.'"
