Classic board game Cluedo has killed off one of its six original characters, Mrs White.

The long-time housekeeper of Tudor Mansion is to be replaced by the mysterious Dr Orchid, who was privately educated in Switzerland “until her expulsion following a near-fatal daffodil poisoning incident”.

Dr Orchid, who gained a PhD in plant toxicology, was then home-schooled by the character she is replacing.

It is the first time Cluedo’s owner Hasbro has killed off a character since 1949.

The game’s six characters are: Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs Peacock, the Reverend Green, Colonel Mustard and the new Dr Orchid.
