Swansea-born Ms Griffin was most well known for playing the masseuse in Twin Town.

She also appeared in Doctor Who, and performed a one-woman show, Caitlin, based on the life of Caitlin Macnamara, wife of Dylan Thomas.

In a post on Facebook Mr Allen wrote: "Helen was a fantastic actor and a terrific writer, she was deeply principled but approached everything she did with a twinkle in those gorgeous, sexy eyes of hers."

"She was an intuitive, unselfish and very clever actor."
