DEATH in Paradise’s Ralf Little was spotted by a fan in a cameo appearance on the show years before playing Neville Parker.
The actor, 41, joined the cast as the DI in October 2019 and an eagle-eyed viewer spotted him when he made a guest appearance seven years prior.
The fan posted a picture from a throwback episode, which shows Ralf dressed in a red shirt speaking to DI Richard Poole, who was played by former lead star Ben Miller.
The tweet read: “I still say it’s an undercover DI Neville Parker. @deathinparadise #deathinparadise @RalfLittle @ActualBenMiller.”
Ralf replied: “Deeeeep undercover. Sussing out the island’s criminal underbelly before tackling it head on 7 years later!”
The impressed viewer then responded to the actor’s tweet and said: “And no one suspected. Damn, you were good!”
Ralf has also sparked fan panic with a post about the show’s emotional finale amid exit rumours.
Series 10 of the hit BBC crime drama comes to an end tonight, and the actor took to Twitter to hype up fans ahead of the last episode.
He added: “The culmination of months and months of endeavour and belief. Series finale of @deathinparadise this coming Thursday.”
Fans are concerned for the future of Ralf and if he will remain on the drama amid reports he is only signed up for one more series.
Their concerns come after it was revealed last month that Death in Paradise has been recommissioned for a further two series.
During an appearance on Graham Norton’s new Virgin Radio show, Ralf said: “I’ll be back next year, but I don’t think I’m signed for the two years.”
So while the star will be back for series 11, series 12 is still up in the air at the moment.
Death in Paradise series 10 finale airs tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
