More recently, the French actress posted an adorable throwback to her time on the programme alongside former star Ardal O'Hanlon, who played DI Jack Mooney.

Sharing a snap of her TV, she drew an arrow pointing at the actor before tagging him alongside a heart-eyed emoji – which showed that she clearly adored working with Ardal!

After Ardal's departure in 2020, Ralf Little, star of The Royle Family, took over to become the resident detective on the island of Saint Marie.

Fans are excited for season 11, which is expected to air in early 2022, following the jaw-dropping cliffhanger which left fans waiting to find out if Neville had the nerve to express his true feelings about Florence.
