Death in Paradise star Ralf Little has relished the opportunity to work on location on the sunshine island of Guadeloupe, but some might say a little too much, as he ended up reluctant to arrive back home. He shared his disappointment after recently braving bitterly cold weather on British soil.

Clearly substituting palm trees for Christmas trees amid dramatically shrinking temperatures was not for Ralf. "It’s horrible!" he gasped, following his return trip to reunite with family over the Christmas period. "I hate to say this, but I’m over it." Carols and turkey roast dinners did little to warm Ralf's spirits about being in the UK and instead, he reminisced about his working life in the sun.

He confessed: "I’m from Manchester so grew up in the cold, wet and drizzle. "I was back two days and was like, 'This sucks.' "I’ve been away for 18 months and not been cold!" He added to the Mirror of his winter ordeal: "As I was flying into Heathrow I looked out the window and as far as I could see, stretching out across the horizon, was thick cloud."

Though his comments were partly made in jest, it's certainly true that Ralf understandably has a passion for the paradise island's climate. The average temperature in Guadeloupe in January is a scorching 29 degrees Celsius - a far cry from the UK's seven degrees Celsius. Despite suddenly losing three quarters of the heat level he'd become accustomed to, Ralf consoled himself with memories of his time filming. Dubbing his acting work on Death In Paradise the "best job on TV", he added: "Not just in terms of location, because Guadeloupe is wonderful. But the show itself has become pretty iconic."

The 41-year-old jetsetter has also been jetting backwards and forwards to sunny Florida, where his fiancee Lindsey Ferrentino lives. The couple recently adopted rescue dogs from Guadeloupe together, which were sent to live with her family. Sadly, one of the pups has now died after a road accident, news which Ralf presented to his Instagram followers last month while fighting back tears. The dog, Suzie, had become a mascot for the show, which focuses on murder mystery plots.
