Fans of Made in Chelsea have seen Andy pursue a career as a musician throughout his time on the reality show, with the budding singer regularly seen performing gigs in the capital. He will continue to focus on his music and is set to visit Nashville in the summer to find inspiration and write his new album.
A dedicated surf fanatic, Andy also works as an instructor at the surf school he co-owns in Devon and owns a line of surf-inspired clothing, called Jam Industries.
Andy has had an action-packed three years in Chelsea which has seen him date co-star Louise Thompson and strike up close friendships with Stevie Johnson, Lucy Watson and Jamie Laing. The musician did have some tension with Jamie in the most recent series, with both men battling to win the affections of newcomer Jess Woodley not long after Andy admitted to HELLO! Online that he would love to have another girlfriend on-screen.
