In between solving murders, the cast enjoy lots of fun in the sun!

Death in Paradise star Josephine Jobert has shared a wonderful video of herself and co-star Tobi Bakare dancing together during a break in filming.

The pair are seen busting some moves and singing along to the classic dance tune Turn Around by Phats & Small. We especially like the way Tobi, who plays JP Hooper, is clapping his hands while sporting forensic gloves!

And we also love the way that one of the Death in Paradise crew saying, “Get ready for a take please” doesn’t distract them from the more important job of singing!

Josephine, who plays DS Florence Cassell in the BBC1 hit, tweeted: “I wanted to share a little souvenir of Tobi and I having fun on a boat on series 4."

Of course, back in series four, Kris Marshall was starring in the crime hit, rather than current leading man, Ardal O’Hanlon.

And Josephine shared a further clip in which Kris, who played Detective Inspector Humphrey Goodman, is seen paying no attention to the dancing!

Josephine wrote: “And Kris Marshall, completely jaded and impassive at the back. We ruined his concentration!” Yep, we can spy Kris at the back!

Josephine will be back as Florence as Death in Paradise returns to BBC1 this Thursday. But while Ardal is back as DI Jack Mooney, of course Strictly star Danny John Jules won’t be helping the team as Dwayne.

Speaking about why he left the show, Danny, said: "I left Death in Paradise because I wanted to get back on stage.”

But he did add that he’d be up for a spin-off, saying: “I’d actually like to do a Death in Paradise spin-off with Dwayne, even if it were just a one-off special.”

Death in Paradise is back on Thursday on BBC1 at 9pm.
