Pendle performer and Coronation Street veteran Natalie Gumede has expressed her delight at starring in a BBC One crime drama television series.

The 2013 Strictly finalist appeared on our screens last night as a guest star in the new series of “Death In Paradise”.

Taking on the role of the daughter of a wealthy plantation owner who is mysteriously murdered, Gumede’s latest casting took her to the sun-soaked shores of Guadeloupe for filming.

Posting on Twitter, Gumede said: “That the most incredible beach I’ve ever been on! #Guadeloupe @deathinparadise.”

The 30-year-old added: “Glad you enjoyed the fun (yet murderous) romp in the sun that was @deathinparadise. THAT was one lucky gig... And PS. I don’t ALWAYS play the baddie,”
