TV director Terry Dyddgen-Jones, perhaps best known for his work on Coronation Street, has sadly died at the age of 67.
Dyddgen-Jones joined the ITV soap in 1997, directing more than 200 episodes of Coronation Street across his 17-year-long stint with the team.
The director was also an established figure in Welsh television, directing the likes of Parch, Byw Celwydd and S4C’s The Rev, as well as producing on Pobol y Cwm.
Following the news of his death, a number of Corrie stars past and present paid tribute to the director on social media, with many remembering him a “truly lovely man”.
Catherine Tydlesley, who recently filmed her final scenes as Eva Price for the soap, said she was “heartbroken” to learn of Dyddgen-Jones’ passing. “He always brought such loveliness to set,” she wrote.
Sally Dynevor, who has played Weatherfield’s Sally Webster since 1986, called Terry “one of life’s beauties… who will be very much missed”.
Past cast members Adam Rickitt (Nick Tilsley), Andrew Lancel (Frank Foster) and Charles Dale (Dennis Stringer) also paid their respects to their former colleague.
