But its new cabaret singer, ex detective Jack Grayling, soon discovers there are also more sinister elements below the surface.

The detective-turned-singer will be played by Shayne Ward, who appeared in Corrie from 2015 to 2018 as Aidan Connor.

He will be joined by his former on-screen love interest on the ITV soap, Catherine Tyldesley, who played Eva Price.

Catherine, 39, will play First Officer Kate Woods and the unlikely duo join together to solve the spate of murders.

Fierce and ambitious, Kate is a woman in a man’s world with plenty to prove. After a passenger is found murdered in their first port of call, Kate’s dream of her own command is thrown into jeopardy and
Jack finds himself thrust back into his former life as a detective.

What follows is a wave of murder mysteries – each set against the backdrop of a different stunning coastal destination where the ship has dropped anchor.

Shayne, 38, said: “I’m really excited to be taking on this exciting role in this brand-new drama.

“Allowing me to combine my two passions: music and acting. It really is a dream come true! Getting to work alongside my good friend Catherine again has been magical, and all while cruising around
the Mediterranean …. heaven.

“I can’t wait for everyone to meet Jack Grayling and his unlikely team
and get on board the Good Ship Murder”

Catherine added: “I’ve loved taking on the role of Kate and keeping Jack in his place at sea.

“Being reunited with Shayne on a Mediterranean cruise has been so much fun and this series has been a joy to make and I’m sure will be a joy to watch – who doesn’t love a cruise?”
