A GOOD-LOOKING cop has sent hearts a flutter - and even sparked his own hashtag - after a new reality cop series was announced.
Durham Constabulary announced Sergeant Sam Turner would be joining the Police Interceptor team, but were inundated with calls to bring back favourite Sgt Kevin Salter.
The officer, who is with Cleveland and Durham's Road Policing Unit, even sparked the hashtag #onlyonekev.
Smitten fans shared photographs of the officer while he was starring in the Channel 5 show, saying they hoped he would return to their screens for the next series.
Memes even included the cop's photograph, surround with pink love hearts.
Other photographs included filters over the officer's face, calling for him to return to the latest series.
Others shared photographs of the officer posing with members of the community, saying: "we have to have insp kev back now in the coms room".
One devoted fan even created a mug with the officer's face on it.
One fan pointed out: "Think there's a few have a soft spot for Kevin!"
Another wrote: "I might have broken twitter with #onlyoneKev. He's watching".
A third said: "kevs just caused me to have hypertension".
Durham Police have been delighted by the attention, sharing many of the fans' calls to have Kev return to the screen.
Just hours after releasing news about the new series, they shared a photograph of the force, saying: "Our Police Interceptor fans sure make us smile!"
Previous series involving Kev Salter include the officer working with colleagues to tackle a runaway stolen van, as well as a hunt for a man armed with a machete.
Kevin Salter has previously received a national life-saving award after talking a teenager out of throwing himself off a bridge.
It's not the first time cops have attracted some heat, with ladies of Leicester going wild after a PCSO released an appeal about anti-social moped driving.
