Pobol y Cwm star Gwyn Elfyn has announced that he is leaving the soap.

The actor has played Denzil Rees on the Welsh-language show for nearly 28 years, but viewers will now see the character bow out in a dramatic storyline.

Elfyn, reflecting on his time with the programme, told BBC News: "Denzil has two memories that stay in my mind - marrying Eileen and working with Dic Deryn on the skips.

"And as far as my personal memories, the story of losing John, one of Denzil's twins, is the best story I've ever had. It was traumatic and the biggest challenge I've had working on Pobol y Cwm. Opportunities like that don't come around very often."

Meanwhile, Pobol y Cwm's series producer Ynyr Williams commented: "Every series needs big storylines and Denzil's exit will be one of the biggest in the history of the programme.

"After 28 commendable years on the show it's a sad time and the end of an era, but it's also a new start."

Pobol y Cwm airs weeknights at 8pm on S4C.
