Death in Paradise: Ben Miller addresses return to show
Dwayne Myers (played by Danny John-Jules) departed the Saint Marie police force in season seven to go travelling with his long-lost dad Nelson Myers (Ram John Holder). With season 10 of Death in Paradise underway, fans will see the return of some much-loved characters but Dwayne will not be making an appearance. When a fan questioned his absence on Twitter, Danny spoke out on his exit from the BBC show.
The 10th season of Death in Paradise has seen Florence Cassell (Joséphine Jobert) return to the island.
DS Camille Bordey (Sara Martins) will also be making an appearance and even deceased DI Richard Poole (Ben Miller) will turn up.
However, Dwayne will not appear in the latest instalment and viewers are desperate to know why.
One tweeted: “#DeathinParadise What happened to Dwayne? Loved him (and all the characters).”

Another fan replied: “Sadly @DannyJohnJules isn’t in the latest series.”
“Amazingly [he was written out] at the end of series seven when his father returned from London,” the original fan explained.
“I am at such a loose end that I went back over the episodes to find out.”
Actor Danny replied: “And I thought Dwayne was #Baffled.”
Could Danny be hinting Dwayne has unfinished business in Saint Marie?
Express.co.uk contacted a representative of Danny’s to clarify whether he had been asked to appear in season 10 and if he would be willing to return in the future.
In a recent interview with Express.co.uk and other press, executive producer Tim Key addressed the possibility of Dwayne and DI Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall) returning.
He confirmed the pair will not feature in season 10 but didn’t rule out either of them making a comeback in the future.

“Never say never,” Tim admitted. “But, that’s all I can say. I’m trying to be mysterious like it’s something big.”
Tim continued: “The joyous thing is we do genuinely stay in touch and I’m in touch with Kris quite often as well.
“You know I think that because they’ve got such affection for the show we wouldn’t rule anything out if there was a good story to tell.”
Death in Paradise fans who hoped to see Dwayne in the latest series were left disappointed when the show returned last week.
One tweeted: “Not the same without Dwayne. #DeathInParadise.”
“Ruby not coming back so can We have Dwayne back please #DeathInParadise,” another questioned.
While a third added: “#DeathInParadise Bring back Dwayne & Camille.”
Death in Paradise continues on BBC One tonight at 9pm.
