While the cast has remained tight-lipped about what to expect from the new season, Ralf, who stars as DI Neville Parker, previously shared his hopes for his character's love life during an Instagram Q&A. "Obviously I can't give you any spoilers and tell you what's going on but everyone wants Neville to have a successful girlfriend, especially me, so fingers crossed it works out for him in season 13," he said.

Filming for season 13 began back in May but has been put on hold for two weeks while the cast and crew take a break.

Ralf announced the news in a post on Instagram earlier this month, revealing that he had left Guadeloupe for London to take part in a charity football match.

Addressing his 172k followers from London's Chelsea Harbour Hotel, the 43-year-old began: "Here's a little update on what's going on in my life. Today I am playing in a massive football game called Game4Ukraine to raise money for schools and supporting Ukraine as much as possible. I love playing in these kind of games but this one, in particular, is pretty special."

He went on to reveal: "I did only land from the Caribbean yesterday. We just went on break for Death in Paradise for two weeks so the timing was perfect."

Fans won't have to wait too much longer to see Neville and the residents of Honoré back on their screens as the show is set to return with a Christmas special in December.
