Tahj Miles teases potential romance ahead | UNDER THE PALMS | HELLO!

Tahj spoke to HELLO! about whether he could see himself being in the BBC murder-mystery for the long haul: "That's like asking what I want to do in the next five years, but I don't know what I want to do in the next five days!"

The TV star added: "I'm open to anything. Other people in their careers say 'In five years I want to do this', but I just take everything as it comes toward me. If things change, things change, if things stay the same then things stay the same. But I'm open to whatever it is."

Discussing what fans can expect from the rest of series 12, Tahj teased: "In typical Death in Paradise fashion, there are always things around the corner.

"Exactly what, I can't tell you but I'd describe it as boxing. There are a few jabs, right hooks and uppercuts. There's twists in loads of different ways. As fans know from watching it since series one, there's always something around the corner."
