Bodyguard and Line Of Duty fans, rejoice! This new ITV drama looks set to be an intense, binge-worthy watch.

Vicky McClure has collaborated once again with producer Jed Mercurio to create the thrilling six-parter Trigger Point. The This Is England actress will star as a bomb disposal operative alongside Adrian Lester.

She shared a first-glimpse into the series on her Instagram page. An air date has not yet been confirmed, however, so fans will have to eagerly wait until 2022 for further updates.

Vicky will play Lana Washington, starring alongside Adrian's Joel Nutkins as they work for the Metropolitan Police Bomb Disposal Squad.

The pair have an inexplicably close bond, having previously served together in Afghanistan. They're forced into a terrifying situation as the terrorist threat over London escalates to imminent, with the squad urgently needing to find out the organisation behind it before time runs out.

Kerry Godliman, Ralph Ineson and Warren Brown will also feature.
