  Line of Duty Figures

More than nine million viewers tuned into the final episode of Line of Duty yesterday, giving it the biggest overnight audience of 2019 so far.

The tense conclusion to the BBC One drama's fifth series attracted an average audience of 9.1 million, according to overnight figures.

Charlotte Moore, the BBC's director of content, said it was "fantastic to see such a big audience" for the show.

The BBC has already commissioned a sixth series from writer Jed Mercurio, who also wrote Bodyguard.

Line of Duty's figures are the highest for a drama since last year's Bodyguard finale, which drew an overnight audience of 10.4 million last September.

ITV's royal drama Victoria, which went out at the same time as Line of Duty on Sunday, attracted an average audience of 2.5 million.
