Andy Whyment is no stranger on our screens having played Kirk Sutherland in Coronation Street since 2000. Last year saw Andy enter the I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here jungle and soon became a firm favourite of the series. But what is known of the actor’s life away from the screen?
Andy has previously spoken of how he feels he is “punching” after marrying wife Nichola.
Talking to OK! Magazine back in 2017, the Coronation Street star said: “I can’t believe it’s nearly 10 years. Time flies when you’re having fun!
“Nic’s is my best mate. We always make each other laugh.
“I’ve been punching above my weight for years – she’s gorgeous! I’m a very lucky bloke.
Andy finished the jungle in second place after EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa was crowned Queen of the Jungle.
At the time Andy spoke of his love for his family as he reflected on his time in the Jungle on the show.
He said: “Honestly I’m getting emotional again just hearing about Nic and the kids.”
He later added: “I’ve loved every minute of it, at times it’s been tough missing Nic and the kids but what an experience I’ve had.
“I feel so honoured to finally to it, and I made the final, so thank you.”
Catchphrase Celebrity Special will air tonight on ITV at 6pm.
