In Peaky Blinders, season six, Rundle’s character Ada Shelby will most likely give birth.

In series five, Ada fell pregnant with Ben Younger (Kingsley Ben-Adir), much to Tommy approval.

Sadly, Ada suffered more loss and Ben was killed by a bomb planted outside of his house.

Ada was previously married to Freddie Thorne (Iddo Goldberg) and she later gave birth to their son Karl.

Sadly, Freddie died as a result of the Spanish Flu between seasons one and two of Peaky Blinders.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Rundle said: “She’s just cooler than ever.

“I think that [creator] Steve [Knight] has said that this is going to be the last, so you can imagine – it’s going to be all guns blazing. It’s always, you know, really rock and roll.

“But it’s the last series, [so] everyone’s going to be really going for it. It feels exciting and sad. We’re all really pleased that we’re getting to make it and tell more of the story.

“But yeah, Ada’s just as badass as ever. She always is.”
