Line Of Duty is basically taking over our lives. Because we only get to watch an episode a week, we spend the rest of the time Googling stuff like 'Who the hell is Jimmy Lakewell?' and looking at funny memes.

But ahead of the next episode on Sunday 18th April, Martin Compston, who plays DI Steve Arnott, has issued a warning to fans over how intense it's going to be. We're not sure we can cope.

In case you need a recap, the last episode saw Steve meeting with Jimmy in prison, after recognising his voice from a recording on Gail Vella's work computer. During a convoy to transfer Jimmy to the police station for questioning, the van was attacked, proving there are police officers in the prison with links to an OCG. We later saw Jimmy strangled to death in his prison cell, in front of Ian Buckells.

Yeah, it was full on.

But actor Martin has teased fans on Instagram that this episode will be even more intense than the last. "Episode 5 kicks off as stores re-open and there’s a sale on waistcoats," Martin joked with the photo of Steve running. "In all seriousness though if you thought Ep 4 ended on a cliffhanger, you’ll need therapy by the end of Ep5 👀"

Mother of God.

Fans have been all over the caption in the comments. "My necks still not recovered from cranking it on Sunday to get a glimpse of who’s on the next page," one person wrote, while another added, "Too much teasing Martin I cant 😭"

Someone else said, "I can’t take these teasers! Stoppp 😂" and a fourth put, "Ep 5 sounds like it's gonna be amazing, I can't take the stress."

We honestly don't think our stress levels can take it.

Line Of Duty continues at 9pm on BBC One.
