And, if that’s not enough to celebrate, he became a father for the first time, after wife Kim Sears gave birth to their daughter in February,

Following her arrival, he admitted his family life had completely changed.

Speaking to the Guardian, he said: “The thing that has surprised me most is how quickly everything changes – from the first day she was born.

“You don’t notice it when you’re there every day but you look back at a photo on the day she was born to one taken 5 days later to now, a few weeks on, and you see how much things change on a daily basis.

“I really don’t want to miss seeing those changes. Even when I’m away for a day I feel bad.

“I feel I should be there and I want to be there as much as I can. 

“So when I’m leaving the house at 8 in the morning and getting back at 8 at night, I feel bad.”

Andy also spoke of the emotional moment he held his baby daughter for the first time.

He added: “I was OK holding her.

“The only thing I found difficult was changing her because you see a small person and you think they’re so fragile – or that their hands are so small that when you’re putting their fingers through their top that they could maybe break.

“But when you see all the midwives – and Kim has a good friend who is a midwife – they’re a lot rougher and they do things much more quickly.

“Lots of people have told me babies are a lot more resilient than you think. They’re not going to break.”
