Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "Can’t get over how much Just for Men went into Les Dennis’ look 😶"

Another fan commented: "Enjoying this episode of #DeathInParadise, although there are two things wrong with it. 1) The theme music – 2) Les Dennis's hair."

Writing alongside an image of Les in character, one viewer mused: "Genuinely thought this was Arthur Fowler."

As another agreed, stating: "Oh dear, Les Dennis looks like Arthur Fowler from EastEnders….."

Les' appearance in the hit show comes amid viewer cries to the BBC to change the theme tune after it fell flat during the latest broadcast.

Viewers were left unhappy with the programme's updated theme music to accompany the opening credits.

Whilst showing aerial shots of the beautiful locations and landscapes, the music kicks in but fans were not happy with the inclusion of lyrics and are already asking for it to be removed.

Taking to Twitter, one unhappy fan remarked: "I loved the longer episode but please put the original title music back on. The one with the lyrics just doesn't give the start of the programme that uplift that people love. The original music is so upbeat and change isn't always a good thing."

A fellow fan agreed, adding: "I do not like the theme music with words….. #deathinparadise."
