Death in Paradise's Ben Miller brands Ralf Little a 'delusional psychopath' as rival detectives clash on set

DEATH in Paradise's Ben Miller branded Ralf Little a 'delusional psychopath' after the rival detectives clashed on set.

Ben played the BBC crime drama's original detective Richard Poole until he was killed off in series three.

Meanwhile Ralf took over as the show's lead detective, Neville Parker, in series nine following in the footsteps of Kris Marshall and Ardal O'Hanlon.

Ben returned for a highly anticipated cameo in a series 10 double bill last week, appearing in a day dream sequence with fellow returnee, Sara Martins, who played DS Camille Bordey alongside him before leaving in series four.

While Ben and Ralf didn't have any scenes together in the actual show, the pair couldn't resist filming a funny sketch for fans which saw Richard and Neville clash in the police station.

Ralf is seen walking into the station dressed as Neville with co-star Josephine Jobert, who plays DS Florence Cassell, while discussing a case.

But he stopped in his tracks as he saw Ben dressed in character as Richard sitting at his desk and said: "Who’s this guy? Why are you at my desk?"

Richard was handling a pile of papers on the desk and replied: "Who's been messing around with my filing?

"I mean this is in completely the wrong folder."

As Neville leaned across him to scoop up the papers, Richard pointed at him while looking across the room and said: "Sorry delusional psychopath! Infiltrating the police station, anybody?"

The camera then turned to Florence, who asked Camille: "What are you doing here?"

Camille replied: "Police stuff" before giving the camera a knowing look.

Ralf captioned the video, which was filmed on TikTok before being shared on Twitter: "DI Parker meets DI Poole. (And DS Bordey shows she’s not really into improv.)

“Great fun on @deathinparadise with @ActualBenMiller @Josie_official and the Queen that is Sara Martins.”

Death in Paradise continues on Thursday, February 11 at 9pm on BBC One.
