Death in Paradise’s Ralf Little has told how he has to “up his game” if he and his fiancée Lindsay Ferrentino were to become a “power couple”. Speaking in an unearthed interview, the actor, 41, recalled his proposal to the award-winning playwright, 32, before admitting that he needs to work harder to match the same level of success as his other half.

If we were ever going to be a power couple I’d have to seriously up my game

The star, who plays Detective Inspector Neville Parker on the popular BBC programme, was quick to gush over his partner’s achievements.

Ralf said: “She’s doing annoyingly well.

“If we were ever going to be a power couple I’d have to seriously up my game.

“Her career is exploding in a way that makes me both incredibly proud, and obscenely jealous,” he added to The Mirror.

Last year it was announced that Lindsay is set to adapt her stage show Amy and the Orphans into a feature film on Netflix.

The stage show previously premiered at the Roundabout Theatre Company in New York.

Two years ago, Variety also reported that the playwright is set to direct the screenplay for Annapurna’s drama Not Fade Away which will reportedly star Hollywood A-lister Emily Blunt.

Lindsay’s work has been applauded by critics with her play This Flat Earth being heralded as her “most daring play to date.”

Speaking on his Two Pints with Will & Ralf podcast, reflected on how he had proposed to his partner, citing the moment as “very romantic”.

Ralf told how he had planned the 2018 proposal in a country house and successfully managed to surprise his fiancée.

Lindsay was treated to an afternoon tea, a spa session and a helicopter ride around Bath and Bristol for the special occasion.

They eventually landed at a country house where they tucked into an afternoon tea.

Recalling the moment he proposed, Ralf said he hid the ring in a scone.

But by the time Lindsay got to that particular scone she told him she was full up.

He added: “I was like, ‘I’ve never known you to say no to a scone!’”

Lindsey then proceeded to cut up the scone and swiftly discovered the ring as he got down on one knee.

On her reaction, he continued: “[She said] ‘Are you serious? This is ridiculous’ and then she burst into tears.”

Reflecting on the day, he went on to say: “Every one of my romantic gestures was scuppered by her asking too many questions and then crying.”

Ralf added on the Two Pints with Will & Ralf podcast that the pair are yet to set a date for their wedding day.

Death in Paradise airs tonight on BBC One at 9pm.
