Taking to Instagram, the actor shared a short clip in which he questioned Tahj as to why the locals in Guadeloupe said that his co-star was a "very good football player."

In the video, he can be seen summoning Tahj and saying: "Tahj, we have to talk about something. So, the second [Assistant Director], Dom, was talking to me and he said that he went to get a pizza a couple of nights ago where the football pitch is, where we play, where we've occasionally played against the locals. 

"He was wearing his Man City mask and a couple of them got talking to him. They said, 'Oh you're a football fan. We've played against some of the Death in Paradise cast. That Tahj is a very good player.'"

A smug-looking Tahj then got up and ran out of the camera shot, to which Ralf responded: 'Yeah, you better run!"

Tahj then said: "Repeat what you just said, who said I was a good player?"

"Just some locals who don't know how to play football," replied Ralf. 

"Say no more," said Tahj before Ralf jokingly added: "Mate I'm absolutely furious. You've definitely paid someone off. No mention of me. Fuming. Fuming."

The humorous video comes just days after the popular BBC show released a first look at the Christmas special. The photo shows Ralf and his co-star, Don Warrington, in character as DI Neville Parker and Sergeant Selwyn Patterson respectively, as they stand on the terrace of the St Marie Police station, complete with tinsel and festive foliage.
