How did you feel when you found out how Andy was going to go?
It was bittersweet because as much as no one likes to leave any lovely job with amazing people, when the storylines were pitched to me I thought, ‘What a great challenge, what a way to go.’
Have you enjoyed your time on the show?
I have, it has been amazing and when I filmed my last scene in The Rovers it all got a bit emotional. I will miss the job, I will miss the work but on the flipside I will miss the Coronation Street family the most and I will always carry those memories of great times with me. It is like a real family - you don’t have to see them all the time but you can reunite with them further down the line. I am looking forward to keeping in touch with everyone.
Although Phelan indirectly helped Michael’s death, Andy is one of Phelan’s first victims, how do you feel about that?
Obviously Michael was Phelan’s first victim inadvertently as far as the fact that he didn’t help him, he left him there! So Andy goes up against him to avenge Michael’s death and he does his best, he tries! But I feel honoured to be on the list of Phelan's victims and one of his first.
