DEATH In Paradise stars have been caught up in rioting on the Caribbean island where the hit BBC show is set.

Ralf Little on Death In Paradise

Cast and crew filming the 11th series’ final scenes in Guadeloupe sought shelter at the Arawak Beach Resort while French special forces dealt with the unrest.

A source said: “Filming times were affected as it was all so unpredictable and unsettling. But we are still on track.”

Hotel worker Leon Rafael said there was a heavy police presence, adding: “They now seem to be finishing filming in the hotel — in one of the suites, out on the terrace and on the beach out front”.

A waitress at Les Madras bar where some scenes are shot added: “The atmosphere has been tense. They haven’t been able to film here because of everything.”

The French territory has been used as the fictional island of Sainte Marie since the show — starring Ralf Little as Det Insp Neville Parker — began in 2011.

A general strike was called a fortnight ago over the coronavirus measures, with petrol bombs hurled at police.

French president Emmanuel Macron ordered in 200 special forces troops last week amid reports that rioters had stolen rifles in the capital, Pointe-à-Pitre.

A dusk-to-dawn curfew is in place with French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin saying police were being shot at.

Red Planet Pictures said: “The safety of cast and crew is always our priority. Production is now wrapped and filming has not been overtly affected.”
