A whole host of stars have been announced to appear in the second series of Death In Paradise joining lead actor Ben Miller (Primeval, Armstrong & Miller).

Guest stars include: The Office and Shaun of the Dead star, Lucy Davis, Gavin & Stacey front man, Mathew Horne and Primeval actress, Hannah Spearritt, James Fleet (Little Dorrit), Lucien Laviscount (Waterloo Road), Neil Pearson (All The Small Things), Ralf Little (The Royle Family), Shaun Parkes (The Mummy Returns), James Murray (Primeval), Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers) and Cherie Lunghi (Secret Diary of a Call Girl). 

Series regulars, Sara Martins (Little White Lies), Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf), Don Warrington (New Street Law) and Gary Carr (The Duchess), are also joined by singer-songwriter Jamelia, Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels), Stephanie Beacham (Trollied) and Gemma Jones (Spooks).

Thrilled at her role in the exotic series, Lucy Davis said: “It’s great to be working with such a fantastic cast against the beautiful backdrop of Guadeloupe. Being filmed on location really offers a sense of authenticity and adds to the quirky comedy, so it’s been brilliant to experience first-hand.” 

The new series sees Miller reprise his role as quintessential English detective, DI Richard Poole; a detective who is not so keen on sun, sea and sand but has found himself living and working on the paradise island of most people’s dreams.  

Death in Paradise is currently being filmed on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe and will return to BBC One for a second series early next year.
