DERRY Girls star Dylan Llewellyn looks worlds away from James Maguire in a first look at new comedy Big Boys.

The 29-year-old actor has played the only male student at Our Lady Immaculate College in the Channel 4 show since 2018.



Derry Girls hit our screens four years ago and has had three successful series.

The teen sitcom, which follows the lives of a group of girls who go to an all-girls Catholic secondary school, aired its final scenes last night.

But don't worry, Derry Girls fans will be able to get their Dylan fix when Channel 4's new comedy Big Boys airs next week.

Dylan will play a 19-year-old boy called Jack who is studying at university.
