Speaking to the BBC, he said: "Neville finds himself confronted by this very beautiful, smart woman [Florence Cassell] who he’s not quite sure how to talk to. She’s incredibly kind and generous and they hit it off and seem to get on really well. Plus there are a few extra surprises for people to look forward to."

Speaking about Neville, he continued: "He’s still allergic to everything but he’s decided to try and take what the island throws at him more in his stride, or at least try. He’s tried to embrace island life more, and Catherine and Florence.

"Because if he’s going to commit to this adventure then he should really commit and do it properly. That’s the theory, it doesn’t entirely work out like that."

The star also gave some hints on what murder mysteries we could look forward to, saying: "A famous musician gets shot in a locked room and only the people in the house could have done it… or could they? There’s a whole episode that takes place on a live morning TV show, a murder case takes place off the back of that – there are loads of good ones again this series!"
