ANGLESEY opera-singing sensation Gruffydd Wyn Roberts has returned to his home town and thanked those who supported him during his journey to the 2018 Britain’s Got Talent final.

The 22-year-old visited the Pen Y Dref Café in Amlwch on Sunday to meet some of his biggest fans and gave a speech expressing his appreciation of those who voted for him during the live shows.

Gruff’s incredible path to the final saw him wow the BGT judges and audiences nationwide with his performances of Nessun Dorma, Nelle Tue Mani and Perfect Symphony.

His cover of the latter received high praise from the judges, with Alesha Dixon calling it “the start of something amazing”.

Gruff eventually finished joint-third with entertainer Donchez Dacres in the live final on Sunday, June 3.

The people of Amlwch gave him a hero’s welcome as he returned to his home town over the weekend.

Several members of the community gathered outside Pen Y Dref Café to greet Gruff and to get a picture with a man who is now an idol to many of the youngsters in the area.

Rhian Jones said her eight-year-old son Lewis was determined to get a picture with Gruff upon his return to the town.

“He’s gone on and on about Gruff for weeks and even wanted his hair cut like him,” his mum said.

“He was very pleased to have been able to have a photo taken with him.”

During his visit to the cafe on Sunday, Gruff stopped to take pictures with several people and even found time to enjoy a can of Coca-Cola in the sun.

The gifted singer said that he has “so much to look forward to” in the coming months after his “amazing journey” on Britain’s Got Talent.
