Comic Relief viewers were left in hysterics tonight as Bodyguard hunk David Budd threatened to whip out his Glock.
Richard Madden reprised his role as the policeman in a hilarious skit which reunited him with Keeley Hawes, whose politician character Julia Montague died in the show.
During an interrogation for a new job, Budd was seen being interrogated for a new job working for Joanna Lumley.
He was asked about his weapon, and he said in times of danger he would: "Whip out my Glock".
Budd was referring to his gun, adding: "It’s my weapon of choice."
The skit went on with Budd driving Lumley but the care got stopped by Line of Duty’s Ted Hastings, played by Adrian Dunbar.
He eyed Budd suspiciously before throwing open the boot and declaring: "Ah ha I knew it!" as Keely Hawes climbed out.
The sketch crossed over creator Jed Mercurio’s two hugely popular TV shows – and viewers loved it.
They were left in hysterics over the "Glock" and they were thrilled to see Keeley’s character back from the dead.
One tweeted: "Omg comicrelief Bodyguard “I’d whip my glock out out!”
Another wrote: "Oh my days….he can show me his glock any day."
A third added: "Childishly cackling away at this ComicRelief BodyGuard special box glock."
Bodyguard followed war veteran David who was assigned to protect to Home Secretary Julia Montague.
It received rave reviews and record ratings, but a second series has not yet been confirmed for the Golden Globe-winning series.
However creator Jed Mercurio confirmed in September 2018 that he was "just beginning" talks with the BBC about another series.
Madden said in November that he had arranged to meet with Mercurio to chat about the show’s future.
Bodyguard gripped the nation and was a huge ratings hit for BBC One last year.
Its first series was the most-watched BBC drama in a decade, with the finale being the most-watched piece of TV drama ever with a record 17.1million people glued to their TVs.
