Could this be the end of the road for Jack as he comes under investigation in Death in Paradise? Contains spoilers!

Death in Paradise fans could face more heartache this Thursday as DI Jack Mooney faces being kicked out of the police force!

The team are reeling after the tragic events surrounding the death of Florence’s fiancé Patrice, which led to the cop deciding to quit the island to get some space to grieve.

Now, in a fresh twist, Jack (played by Ardal O’Hanlon) finds himself under formal review in Thursday’s episode, which means he could be struck off and sent back to the UK!

The Commissioner warns him that DS Madeline Dumas from International Affairs is heading over from Paris to investigate him.

What will Madeline find? And has Jack been up to no good? Meanwhile, Jack must try and focus on his latest investigation.

The gang are looking into the death of a radio DJ live on air. Jack knows he must crack the case as he tries to make a good impression on Madeline.

Death in Paradise always has top guest stars and this week look out for a star turn by former EastEnders actor Richard Blackwood.

Meanwhile, French actress Josephine Jobert has spoken about why she decided to leave the series after five years as Florence.

“So I quit the show for professional and personal reasons, nothing dramatic, I swear everything is fine,”she revealed in a Twitter message.

“I’ve been working on Death in Paradise for five years and it’s been an amazing experience; working with brilliant actors, working with the English and French crew.

“I loved every minute of it and I’m going to miss the show.”

Of course, Danny John Jules also left the show as Officer Dwayne Myers. Let’s hope this isn’t the end of Jack…

Death in Paradise continues on Thursday at 9pm on BBC1.
