Death in Paradise’s Jason Manford strips topless for behind-the-scenes pics with ‘lookalike’ co-star Kelvin Fletcher


DEATH in Paradise’s Jason Manford stripped topless for a behind-the-scenes picture with ‘lookalike’ co-star Kelvin Fletcher.

The comedian guest starred in the hit BBC crime drama last week alongside former Emmerdale actor Kelvin, 37.

Jason, 39, played a character called Craig, who was visiting his friend Gavin (Kelvin) and his wife Cherry with his partner Danielle on the island of Saint Marie.

It seems Jason and Kelvin formed a firm friendship off camera as well during their time together in Guadeloupe, where the show is filmed.

Following the episode, Jason shared a series of behind-the-scenes snaps of their adventures off camera, and wrote: “To say our two weeks in Guadeloupe was ‘work’ is an insult to the word ‘work’.

“That’s not to say the team out there don’t work incredibly hard but as a guest cast, we literally couldn’t have had a better time on holiday…I mean at work!”

The pictures included one of Jason and Kelvin topless in a natural rock pool and chatting side by side on deckchairs on the beach with a range of drinks in front of them.

Jason also shared another batch of photographs of him and his new BFF Kelvin which included one of his pal topless and showing off his impressive physique as they walked near a stream.

Others saw them out on the ocean on personal water crafts and riding in a car together.

Jason captioned them: “Absolute bromance @kelvin_fletcher miss ya mate.”

Viewers joked the pair looked alike on Twitter

Viewers were loving the snaps, and one cheekily commented on their topless snap writing on Twitter: “Separated at birth?”

Another joked: “Looks like you’ve taken your eldest away for a bit of father son time.”

A third added: “Hard to tell which one is which in the 2nd pic to be fair.”

Death in Paradise continues on Thursday, January 28 at 9pm on BBC One.
