The current season of Death in Paradise has seen many twists and turns that fans definitely didn't see coming. Last week, in episode six, viewers were shocked when Neville found himself at the centre of a murder case not in his usual role as lead detective, but as a suspect.

The shock twist came at the end of the episode when Neville went to confront David Cartwright (Patrick Kennedy) once and for all over the murder of Jake Dalton, but after a heated exchange, authorities soon found Cartwright himself murdered.

Meanwhile, Ralf recently was reflecting on his time on the show amid fans expressing their concern that he could be set to depart the Island of Saint Marie. Addressing fans directly on an Instagram Q&A this week, Ralf called the experience "incredible", "life-changing" and "unexpected".

He added: "I was already in the show once before, I never thought I'd be in it again, so I felt like I'd won the lottery. Every day is unexpected and every day is an unexpected pleasure."
