Jodie was wearing a colourful outfit typical of her character’s fashion sense, donning a multi-coloured striped short-sleeved top and matching trousers.

Killing Eve series three left viewers ‘in tears’ following the emotional finale that saw Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle decide to ‘walk away’ from each other.

The ‘will-they-won’t-they’ storyline that dominated the plot appeared to come to an end when Villanelle and Eve stood back-to-back on London Bridge and agreed to walk away and ‘never look back’.

However in the final moments of the episode both Villanelle and Eve turned back around to look at each other – suggesting the two characters might end up together.

The promise of a future relationship delighted fans, who begged for the next series to start with the two characters together.

The episode also tied up loose ends of the series, including revealing Konstantin as Kenny’s apparent killer. Security footage showed Konstantin (Kim Bodnia) arriving at the office and meeting with Kenny (Sean Delaney) hours before his death.

Armed with the footage, Carolyn confronted Konstantin, with Paul (Steve Pemberton), Eve and Villanelle also in attendance.

She came close to killing Konstantin but instead killed Paul, who was working for both MI6 and The Twelve.

Konstantin, who had planned to leave to Cuba, left but Villanelle decided not to follow.

The episode also saw Villanelle being rejected by Carolyn after she said she was ready to become an MI6 agent. Carolyn responded: ‘What use are you to me… to anyone?,’ referring to the assassin’s desire not to kill any more.

The drama culminated in the conversation between Eve and Villanelle on the bridge, during which they discussed their future.

Only recently, Jodie revealed at the 2021 BAFTA TV Awards that filming was due to start this month.

The award-winning actress was asked by red carpet host Tom Allen: ‘Season four of Killing Eve, have you started filming yet?’ to which Jodie, 28, replied with: ‘Tomorrow.’

Jodie previously said that she will miss playing her ‘daring’ character Villanelle ahead of Killing Eve’s fourth and final series.

The actress, who was nominated for the Leading Actress gong for her role at the 2021 BAFTA TV Awards, discussed the hit BBC series during a Q&A chaired by Rhianna Dhillon ahead of the ceremony at the time.

Talking about what she will miss the most about playing assassin Villanelle once Killing Eve airs its fourth and final series, Jodie admitted: ‘Gosh, oh God I’m like: “Don’t say that out loud!” Oh God, I just had so much fun.

‘As long as there is truth in what you are saying, acting can be big and it can be bold and it can be in your face and it can be a bit ugly and it can be all of these different things like not everything has to be super subtle.

‘I don’t know another word that I can think of, but you know what I mean? I guess just to be a little bit more daring, you know. There’s no need to feel silly about what it is that you may want to do. I’ve just had so much fun.

‘I’ve been in such strange you know, funny situations and met some amazing, amazing people so yeah, I think that’s what I’ll miss the most.’

It was revealed in March that Killing Eve’s fourth and final season will air on television next year.

Carolyn responded: ‘What use are you to me… to anyone?,’ referring to the assassin’s desire not to kill any more’

It was confirmed by the show on Twitter that the much-loved spy thriller will draw to a conclusion with its fourth instalment in 2022.

A promotional video shared on the programme’s social media account at the time also revealed that filming will begin again this summer.

Filming of the new series was previously halted due to the coronavirus pandemic, which restricted shooting the show’s various European locations.

Followed by ‘premieres 2022, oh one more thing, the final season’, while the show’s theme tune played over the video.

The clip was posted alongside the caption: ‘Anything worth having is worth the wait.’
