Alexandra often updates her fans on social media

The aforementioned show, which is due to return for season four on Netflix next month, recently shared some official photographs ahead of its release, but fans were left confused after noticing one character was absent.

The photos in question, shared by the streaming giant, saw many familiar faces appear including Alexandra and her co-star Martin Henderson, who plays Jack Sheridan, but fans have been questioning whether Charmaine, played by Lauren Hammersley, had been written out of the script due to her being "missing" from the photos.

One person said on Reddit: "I don't see Charmaine in these pictures - can either be good or bad (hopefully they give her a good exit)." A second also spotted her absence, writing: "I didn't see Charmaine!"

A third wrote: "No Charmaine and more importantly no Todd! I think Charmaine is in season four [but] hopefully less screen time."

 The synopsis for series four reads: "Despite not knowing whether her baby belongs to her deceased husband, Mark, or Jack, Mel begins Season 4 with a sense of optimism. For years she yearned to be a mother and her dream is one step closer to reality."

"While Jack is supportive and excited, the question of paternity continues to gnaw at him."

Virgin River will land on Netflix on Wednesday 20 July.
