Death In Paradise Actor Quits

 Ardal O'HanlonArdal O'Hanlon









 Ardal O’Hanlon has announced that he is leaving the BBC crime drama Death In Paradise after three years. 

The 53-year-old actor joined the popular programme as DI Jack Mooney in 2017, but said it is “time to move on and explore other opportunities”. 

He will make his final appearance in the forthcoming ninth series of the programme, which is filmed on the French-Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. 

O’Hanlon said: “I’ve spent the last four summers in Guadeloupe playing DI Jack Mooney (solving over 20 murder cases in my time there!) 

“It’s been a hugely rewarding and unforgettable experience, working with incredibly talented actors, directors and crew while discovering a magical part of the world. 

“However, it’s time to move on and explore other opportunities – preferably nearer the Arctic Circle.” 

“I’m confident that Death In Paradise will go from strength to strength and viewers will share my enthusiasm for Jack’s successor!” he added. 

Death In Paradise, which is set on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie, launched in 2011 with Ben Miller in the lead role. 

Kris Marshall took over for series three to six, then O’Hanlon joined the show for the sixth season. 

DI’s Mooney exit storyline has not been revealed.

Emily Atack and Adam Thomas have been unveiled as the new presenters of I’m A Celebrity spin-off show Extra Camp.

Actress Atack, who was runner-up on the reality TV show last year, and 2016 jungle favourite Thomas are taking over after former hosts Scarlett Moffatt and Joe Swash quit the programme.

Atack said: “I’m thrilled that I get to make more amazing memories in a place that means so much to me.

“I’ve loved working with Joel on Singletown, we’re like brother and sister, and Adam has got such amazing energy. The three of us are going to have the best time ever!”

Thomas said: “I can’t believe that I’m heading back to the jungle, this is something I never saw coming my way!

“I’m so excited to be reunited with my campmate Joel and to also work alongside Emily.

“We’re going to have so much fun… just keep me away from those spiders!”

Dommett joined the nightly live show in 2017 and said he was excited to be returning with “a new bunch of amigos”.

“I can’t wait to show Emily around and keep reminding Adam that I beat him in 2016,” he said.

“It’s such a huge privilege to do this show and I truly love it. I can’t wait to find out who we are watching!”

Executive producer Colin Hopkins added: “Joel, Emily and Adam literally can’t wait to get into the jungle to give our loyal viewers the biggest and best exclusives from the camp.

“They’ll uncover the juiciest of jungle life gossip, interview their favourite celebrities and take on some of the hardest trials from this year’s show (just don’t tell Adam!)”

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns to ITV later this year.
