Neil Morrissey teases Line Of Duty return and says he 'keeps reminding' show creator Jed Mercurio he's 'still alive'

NEIL Morrissey has teased that his Line Of Duty character Nigel Morton could make a return to the small screen because he was never killed off. 

The 58-year-old appeared on This Morning today to discuss his new role in The Syndicate alongside Gaynor Faye but he couldn’t resist talking aboutthe hugely popular crime drama. 

Neil appeared in the first three series of Line of Duty,which is currently on it’s sixth series, from 2012 until 2016.

His character was linked to corrupt police officer Tony Gates (Lennie James) but he just retired instead of being killed off.

Now he’s hinted that he could reprise that role after seven years as he discussed the show with Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, admitting he had been in touch with show creator Jed Mercurio.

Eamonn told him: "We're all addicted. I'm particularly addicted because of all the scenes in Belfast with what I can spot and what I can see, all of that. But correct me if I'm wrong – when you appeared, your character wasn't killed off."

Neil replied. "No, I keep telling Jed Mercurio that I'm very much alive. I just say, 'No, just bring me back and shoot me in the face! That's what he does to all the stars, doesn't he?!'

"Wipe me out, and then it's closure, isn't it?"

Line Of Duty viewers are still desperately trying to work out who is behind H and have noticed numerous references to the first series this time round, so could Nigel be involved?
