Rhodri Meillr, who plays Dilwyn, recently spoke about what it was like filming in Wales, saying: "I live in Cardiff so filming In My Skin is as local as they get for me.

"I love being on set and knew quite a lot of the crew as we’ve worked together on other series in the past. One of the aspects I love about my line of work is meeting new people in new places but it’s always a pleasure to see some familiar faces and old friends."

What is In My Skin season two about?

The series sees Bethan embark on a new relationship, while also plan what she wants to do after school.

She continues to live a double life as her father Dilwyn is still making her life difficult, and she struggles to hide the realities of her home life from her friends.

Speaking about series two, writer Kayleigh previously said: "The new series follows Bethan as she’s preparing to fly the nest. She’s falling in love, she’s thinking about University - in short she’s growing up. But she’s forced to choose between pursuing her own happiness and her responsibilities to her mum."
