Everyone is saying the same thing about last night's episode of Bodyguard

"The real hero of Bodyguard."

Bodyguard is the newest nail-biting, nerve-wracking political from the BBC - and it's had everyone talking this week.


From the makers of Line of Duty , the six-part series debuted on Sunday night, with the second episode airing last night [August 27].

It stars Game of Thrones' Richard Madden (aka: Robb Stark) as David Budd, the troubled bodyguard of Home Secretary Julia Montague, played by Keeley Hawes.

And while the first 20 minutes of the premiere had people talking for its edge-of-your-seat sequence (which, don't worry, we won't spoil here), social media users were left distracted by something in episode 2.

Especially one moment in particular.

Warning: Spoilers for episode 2 of Bodyguard lie beyond this point. 

Richard Madden as David Budd

One of the most nerve-shredding moments in the second episode came as a school teacher and her students - including Budd's children Ella and Charlie - got caught up in a terror attack.

As a truck full of explosives barrelled towards the schoolyard, the teacher managed to calm her nerves enough to get all of the kids to safety - while holding a mug of tea in her hand.

Viewers were impressed as they watched the teacher guide the children indoors, all without losing a drop of her brew - and hailed her the "real" hero of the episode.




  • The six-part drama continues on BBC One on Sunday at 9pm.
