Last week's episode of Death in Paradise ended with a major revelation – as Neville Parker (Ralf Little) made the shock announcement that he was planning to leave Saint Marie to go travelling.


And in new first-look images of this week's episode, fans have been given a glimpse of what looks like a possible leaving party for the popular detective inspector, with one photo showing him holding a blue balloon while talking with Naomi Thomas (Shantol Jackson).

Meanwhile, an additional still shows the return of a very familiar face in Florence Cassell (Joséphine Jobert), whose reappearance following a spell in witness protection was previously revealed in a teaser at the end of last week's episode.

"I missed him, more than I thought I would," we heard her say, hinting that romance could finally be on the cards for the pair.

We can also expect to see more from another returning face in Dwayne (Danny John-Jules) after he made a bittersweet reappearance last week, announcing that he had returned to the island as his dad "hasn't got as much life in him" as he had previously claimed.
