Another person enquired how long each episode of the much-loved BBC drama takes to film, to which Joséphine replied: "It takes approx one week and a half [to film an episode]."

Fans still have a while to go before new episodes begin airing, given that filming only kicked off this month. However, the BBC has given a hint of what to expect in season 11 in a new synopsis, which reads: "Series eleven will see even more mysterious murders, guest stars galore, huge surprises and plenty of twists. How will Marlon cope without JP?

"Will Neville disclose how he really feels about Florence and how will she respond to this bombshell? If that's not enough, could the return of familiar faces to the island cause trouble in paradise?"
