However, it wasn’t all plain sailing for the pair with Nicola previously admitting she thought he was “a bit of an idiot”, even though Andy says he fancied her for a while before making his move. 

"I said in my wedding speech you just know when you meet the one,” he told OK! “And that's true."

Thankfully for the couple, it worked out, and after a sweet proposal during a holiday to Monte Carlo, they got married in 2007. 

Andy who plays Kirk on the ITV soap has set up a happy home with his family where they regularly turn the lounge room into a dance floor to recreate famous routines.
