Soap stars Hetti Bywater and Natalie Gumede are just some of the famous faces heading to the murder hotspot of Saint Marie to guest star in the fourth series of Death In Paradise.

After playing ill-fated teen Lucy Beale in EastEnders, Hetti is no stranger to murder and she’ll be joined on the tropical island by Natalie Gumede who viewers will remember as Corrie’s Kirsty and also for her run to the final in last year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Other guest stars appearing in the new series include Downton Abbey‘s Amy Nuttall, who played housemaid Ethel Parks, Broadchurch’s Will Mellor, Outnumbered’s Tyger Drew-Honey and Call The Midwife actor Leo Staar, who played as Nurse Lee’s boyfriend Alec in BBC One’s fifties drama.

The fourth series of Death In Paradise will follow the island’s new detective DI Humphry Goodman (Kris Marshall), who arrived following the inevitable murder of DI Richard Poole (Ben Miller) at the start of series three…

Death In Paradise series four will be coming to screens in 2015.
