Ex-Coronation Street director Terry Dyddgen-Jones has died


TV director Terry Dyddgen-Jones, most famous for shooting more than 200 episodes of Coronation Street, has died at the age of 67. He died at Velindre Hospital, Cardiff on Wednesday after a short illness.

He first stepped onto the cobbles of Coronation Street in 1997, and continued to work on the show for 17 years. In that time, he also directed scenes in EastEnders, Emmerdale, Heartbeat, and Hollyoaks.

Huw Thomas, BBC Wales Arts and Media correspondent writes: "Coronation Street viewers will recognise the name - his was the last to appear on screen after the opening titles rolled on countless episodes from 1997 until 2014. He must have been among the soap's longest-running directors, a man skilled in telling the stories of Wetherfield and turning the dialogue and drama of Corrie into a TV routine for millions of viewers across the UK."

In 2015 our blogger Llifon interviewed Mr Dyddgen-Jones and you can read the full interview here.

Our condolences go to Mr Dyddgen-Jones' family and friends.
