Trigger Point: First Look At ITV's Cop Drama Starring Line Of Duty's Vicky McClure

If you still have a Line of Duty-sized hole after the sixth series finished airing wrapped up, you may be in luck.

Vicky McClure, who played Detective Inspector Kate Fleming in the BBC police drama, and Adrian Lester have joined forces to play bomb disposal operatives known as 'Expos' in ITV's new six-part thriller series, Trigger Point.

The series was written by screenwriting newcomer, Daniel Brierley, and produced by Jed Mercurio's HTM Television.

The crime drama and will focus on counter terrorism policing and the "extraordinary" work of the Metropolitan Police Bomb Disposal Squad.

Vicky plays as frontline officer Lana Washington, and Adrian Lester (Life, Trauma) as Joel Nutkins, who works alongside her. Both ex-military, the pair are close, having served together in Afghanistan.

When a terrorist campaign threatens London over the summer, the duo are at the forefront of urgent efforts to find out who is behind the bombings before the number of deaths increase.

Millions of viewers tuned in to see DCI Kate Fleming as she investigated the identity of H. But the BBC's bent copper series also happened to serve as style inspiration for viewers who sought Kate's sharp and short 'do.

Scottish newspaper The Daily Record has reported a surge in people requesting a Kate Fleming cut since hairdressers have reopened - with Vicky pretty much having the most desirable hair since the 90's now infamous 'The Rachel'.

Glaswegian hairdresser Taylor Ferguson, whose clients have included Lulu and Cherie Blair, told the publication: "Vicky McClure's hair it is very current and that's what people do now. They connect a haircut to a person they know who is current and will show us a photograph of them on their phone."

"We've had some people asking for hair just like Line of Duty's Kate Fleming and it is quite catwalky looking, and like something you'd see in a style magazine."

We think Lana Washington could follow in Kate's footsteps and become a #styleicon.
