“So no, I have no plans to go back, I was there to film an interview.”

The actor has previously ruled out going back to the soap, stating he would like to try other shows. However, Andy was never killed off, therefore the door is open for a comeback.

What happened to Andy Sugden?

During his two decades in the village, Andy had a turbulent love life. However he ended up having two children, Sarah and Jack, with Debbie Dingle.

So no, I have no plans to go back, I was there to film an interview.

But Andy fled the village in 2016 when Chrissie White tried to set him up for shooting her father Lawrence.

Andy’s brother and Chrissie’s ex-husband, Robert, helped his brother escape by providing him with a passport, putting their lifelong feud behind them.

Last week Andy’s adopted sister was told their grandmother Annie Sugden had died at home in Spain.

Annie was one of the soap’s original characters long before the likes of the Tates or the Dingles arrived.

The actress who played Annie, Sheila Mercer, died last year aged 100. She made her last appearance in the show in 2009 for Jack Sugden’s funeral.
