WATCH: Death in Paradise star freaks out on the set

The series will see guest stars including Jason Manford and Kelvin Fletcher take part on the show, and a former detective, Ben Miller, previously gave an interesting insight into what roles they may have taken on!

Ben, who played DI Richard Poole in the first two seasons, revealed that everyone wanted to play 'the victim' in an episode of the crime drama, as it essentially meant a two-week holiday in the Caribbean.

He explained: "Once the series became popular it was easier to get people to be in it, but one of the great things about being the person who gets murdered - and I say this from experience - is that it's like a two week holiday!

"They get you to go out the whole length of the shoot but you're basically sitting on a sun lounger for two weeks! I think word got around among the acting community. No shame at all playing the dead person!"

Ralf joined the show in season nine 

While Jason's role has yet to be revealed, from Ben's description (and Jason's Instagram), it certainly sounds like the comedian might be playing a victim in the latest series! The star has been hugely enjoying his time in Guadaloupe. 

Sharing a snap of himself relaxing, he captioned the post: "Mad busy day today. Been told by make-up department my character should be tanned so just sorting that out. Then got a jet ski lesson this afternoon. Absolute nightmare of a day!"
