There are many reasons to love murder mystery series Death in Paradise - its gripping storylines, scenic backdrop, the will-they-won't-they romance between current detective DI Neville Parker and colleague Florence Cassell - but we would be lying if we said we didn't also tune in to see the many recognisable guest stars who crop up every episode.

To start with, the show's first-ever Christmas episode - which is set to air on Boxing Day - will feature the likes of Ghosts star Mathew Baynton, Upstart Crow's Jocelyn Jee Esien and Juliet Stevenson, who viewers will have seen recently in The Long Call. The extra special 90-minute long episode will also see the return of fan favourite Danny John-Jules as charismatic Officer Dwayne Myers, so it's clearly one fan won't want to miss.

Details about season 11 remain under wraps for now, but BBC bosses have revealed that viewers can expect to see Neville, Florence and co investigate even more bizarre and brilliant cases, from a skydiver who is seemingly stabbed mid-air and a murder on a golf course to a killer at a concert and a mysterious case at a rehab clinic.

"Meanwhile, Florence faces a big decision when asked by the commissioner to go undercover to solve a drug trafficking case on another island and questions whether she is ready to face her fears," the show teases.
