We're three episodes into series 6 of Line of Duty and, to be honest, we're still absolutely filled with questions. Line of Duty fans have been coming up with tonnes of theories about what will happen as season 6 develops, and it looks like they've just landed on a pretty massive clue.

At the forefront of our many many questions about Line of Duty is of course the identity of the elusive 'H' - the fourth and (we think) final rogue police officer that AC-12 are trying to track down. However, we might not need to wonder much longer, as eagle-eyed viewers have spotted a huge clue that could point us towards H's identity.

Warning: spoilers ahead.

In last night's episode three, detective Steve Arnott is seen visiting Steph Corbett, the widow of undercover officer John Corbett, who was brutally killed in series 5.

As Steve and Steph are talking in the kitchen, the tiles on the wall behind Steve are clearly visible. Most of the tiles are white, but viewers have noticed that one tile is designed with a pattern in a pretty obvious 'H' shape.

Naturally, fans reckon this subtle reference to 'H' could help us to figure out H's identity. And while the 'H' tile doesn't point to anything conclusive, it is a fairly random pattern to have plonked in the middle of your kitchen wall.

However, it's not clear who the clue would link to H, as H is thought to be the fourth corrupt police officer and Steph herself doesn't work for the police. Still, the clue could be suggesting that Steph is connected to H, or could the tile be intended to link H to Steve instead?

Line of Duty fans have of course jumped to Twitter to share their theories, and it seems the tile certainly hasn't gone unnoticed.

On top of the tile, some fans reckon that the 'H' tile coupled with the jumbled letters on the whiteboard could lead to even more clues.
