Death In Paradise actress Joséphine Jobert, 35, has told fans she felt “dead inside” as she faced her phobia of crabs, for a scene in the latest episode of the show. DS Florence Cassell and DI Neville Parker (played by Ralf Little) returned to screens last night to investigate the demise of an archaeologist, poisoned on the island.
