Ralf Little took on the role of DI Neville Parker midway through season nine of Death in Paradise. While the actor has confirmed he will be returning as the lead character for series 12, fans of the BBC drama have revealed they would like to see Josephine Jobert replace him when he does leave.
Josephine became a fan favourite soon after her character, detective sergeant Florence Cassell, made her first appearance on the fictional island of Saint Marie.
Florence originally left the BBC drama in season eight following the tragic death of her fiancée.
The actress later returned to the show but she devastated Death in Paradise viewers when she left the programme halfway through season 11.
However, BBC bosses did not kill her off – so could she make a return to the island in the future?

With Kris focusing on the spin-off show, will Josephine decide to head back to the Caribbean in the near future?
The actress recently spoke with her former co-star Tahj Miles, who plays police officer Marlon Pryce in Death in Paradise.
The actress explained she has just finished a series which takes place between Paris and London with her mother.
She said: “Honestly, it’s really nice I don’t want to be humble, it is really cool.”
