If the show were to pursue this storyline in another series, this wouldn’t be the first romance between colleagues on the show.
Fans will remember how Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall) and Camille Bordey (Sara Martins) developed feelings for one another in earlier seasons.
However, it seems like viewers will just have to wait for season 10 to be released to find out what is next for the characters.
So far all actor Ralf Little has confirmed about the next series is his desire to learn French.
He told Metro Online: “I’ve got roughly four months. I want to get my French in order, obviously [Neville] speaks English but it would be nice to speak French on the island.”
Death in Paradise is available to stream on BBC iPlayer now.
