Reflecting on her experience on Death in Paradise and working with Ben Miller, Smart told WhatsOnTv: “I’ve always admired his work so it was a joy to be work with him.

“We stayed in an amazing complex right on the beach with a lovely pool.
So on our day off we were sitting around the pool going, ‘What have we done to deserve this?’
“All of the actors in the episode – Lee Boardman, Colin Salmon and Jeanie Spark – asked the producers if there was any way we could come back for the next series.”
