The sixth series of Line of Duty only finished a few weeks ago but we're already missing Kate, Steve and Ted and we're still not sure what to do with our Sunday nights. So it's good news then that fans are still finding little titbits of info on the series to keep us going until season 7 (fingers crossed). And recently fans have made another great little discovery; that Martin Compston's actual wife had a cameo back in season 5. How did we miss it?

The very quick cameo happens during the first episode of season 5, when DS Steve Arnott gets a message on a dating app. The camera focuses on his phone as he reads the message from a woman named Tina Watts, which says, "Hi Steve, great messaging you, would you like to meet for a drink?"

We were probably too distracted at the time by the 'reply' or 'deny' (brutal) options on the app, to even notice that Tina Watts is actually Martin Compston's real-life wife Tianna Chanel Flynn. And even better, Tina Watts' profile picture shows her cuddling a dog, which actually turns out to be the couple's very own pet staffie.

Sure, we're a bit late in realising this, but we were all pretty focussed on 'H' and the wee donkey and that's probably why the scene has just started doing the rounds again on social media.

Martin and Tianna got married back in 2016 in a ceremony in his Scottish hometown Greenock. Both Vicky McClure (Kate Fleming) and Adrian Dunbar (Ted Hastings) attended the wedding along with Stephen Graham (John Corbett). It sounds like a who's who of AC-12 royalty.
