After being asked by a fan whether she does her routine in order to be “fit for the job”, the star wrote back, explaining: “This is not an obligation for the purposes of this role nor a demand of the production. It’s first and foremost for me. To feel in good shape, performant, to feel better in my head and my body. To relieve tension and stress. And to feel more confident on screen. But even when I’m not shooting, I train a lot. I just like/need it.”

She added: “When I’m filming I train as soon as I can (weekend or whenever I have a moment off during the week) but if I can choose, I always prefer to do it in the morning (especially very early). It gives me energy for the day.” 

The Death in Paradise cast are clearly having the time of their lives on the show at the moment, as Ralf Little, who plays DI Neville Parker, recently revealed that they’d found another stray puppy on the street - and that he wanted to adopt her!
