However, while Kris was filming scenes in the Caribbean for Death In Paradise, his family joined him on the Island while he was working. Kris did make a rare comment about fatherhood in a previous appearance on Lorraine while opening up about his decision to leave the BBC show in 2017.

"I realised I had to get my son to school. He was becoming a bit too Caribbean – he refused to wear shoes and would only drink coconut water and eat pineapple," he said, adding: "He was very good on the beach but not so good with Maths and English, so I decided that it was time to get him to school, so the show had to go really."
