In a video posted to the show’s official Twitter page, Jobert said: “Just a message to just say thank you and goodbye.
“For those who watched episode six you now know I’m leaving Death in Paradise.
“I quit the show for personal and professional reasons – nothing dramatic I swear!
“Everything is fine it’s just that I’ve been working on Death in Paradise for five years…I loved every minute every minute of it.
“I’m going to miss the show, I’m going to miss Toby and Ardal and Shyko and everyone so it’s been a tough decision, but that’s life.”
There’s no word yet on whether Florence could be back but since she’s only just left, it seems unlikely.
Death in Paradise season 9 continues every Thursday at 9pm on BBC One.
