A dodgy prawn curry nearly caused havoc with "Line of Duty" filming after the cast and crew were struck down with food poisoning "like a domino effect".
Stephen Graham (John Corbett) and Rochenda Sandall - who plays gang member Lisa McQueen in the BBC thriller - were among the stars who began turning "pasty and sweaty" after chowing down on the fishy food on their break.
Rochenda said: "We all had the prawn curry on a night shoot, and we all started to go a bit pasty, a bit sweaty.
"I said to Steve, "Are you all right mate?" And he said, "Oof, I feel a bit rough, mate."
"I went, "What did you have for dinner?" And he went, "Oh, the prawn curry." And the same with Ali [Natkiel, Lee Banks], he went, "I've had the prawn curry as well."
"It was like a domino effect between all the crew."
Rochenda admitted the scene "really nearly" resembled one from comedy movie "Bridesmaids", in which several characters begin exploding out of both ends after getting food poisoning from a restaurant.
She said: "You've got to keep it together.
"I was actually quite surprised that you couldn't tell. The make-up girls did a tremendous job. A brilliant job to hide it."
The thrilling fifth "Line of Duty" series will come to an end on Sunday (05.05.19) in a 90-minute special, and Rochenda has hinted not all the endings will be tied up.
She said: "It will certainly have some form of conclusion. But as I'm sure you're all aware there's still another series to go, and there's lots of details."
Rochenda turned down the chance to watch all six episodes before they were broadcast, and she has been holding firm about giving away spoilers, even refusing to tell her own mum what is going to happen.
Speaking on "This Morning", she added: "We got offered all six but I chose to watch them live with everybody else.
"She's desperate for an exclusive. Every week she rings and I tell her, "Absolutely no."
"Most people don't want to know. They like being detectives themselves."
