Kelvin played Andy from his first appearance in 1996 up until his final appearance in 2016.

Aww he looks so cute.

Over the years, Andy became a big part of the village. In 2000, Andy was officially adopted by the Sugdens.

However the same year his adoptive mum, Sarah, died in a barn fire, which was set by Andy for the insurance money.

Robert never truly forgave Andy for ‘killing’ their mother.

Andy went on to marry his classmate Katie Addyman. But she had an affair with Robert.

He later began dating 15-year-old Debbie Dingle. But despite the Dingles not wanting them to be together, she ended up falling pregnant with Andy’s daughter who she named Sarah.

Their relationship didn’t last, however Sarah became ill in 2011 with Fanconi Anemia. When they struggled to find a donor, they decided the only way to save their daughter was to have another baby.

Debbie later gave birth Andy’s son, who they named Jack.

Katie and Andy eventually remarried, but she was killed after an argument with Robert.

In 2016, Andy fled the village when Robert’s ex-wife Chrissie tried to set him up for shooting her father Lawrence.

Robert helped his brother escape and got him a new passport. They put their lifelong feud behind them as they said their goodbyes.
