What I’m the Coronation Street brother of celebrity Simon Gregson Andy McDonald looks like now – .


While Simon Gregson takes his stealthy debut in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here !, it’s been a few years since he starred alongside Nicholas Cochrane on Coronation Street.

Nicholas, 47, played Andy McDonald on the cobbles and was the twin brother of Simon’s Steve and played against each other for eight years in the Weatherfield-based soap opera.

It’s been 24 years since Nicholas left Corrie and his appearance has changed a bit since 1997, but there’s still Andy McDonald’s look about him.

Nicholas’s exit from the soap opera came at a time when there was a high-profile selection of a number of characters as a new producer tolled the changes.

He made two brief returns to the soap opera, to be Steve’s witness at his wedding and to witness his parents remarriage, after his character allegedly accepted a teaching post in Spain.

After the soap opera, Nicholas appeared in the ITV crime drama Heartbeat, playing professional golf Barry Scripps, before heading to Canada in 2012 for a theatrical tour with other former Corrie stars, who spoke about their experiences on the TV series.

He appeared in the BBC Doctors daytime soap and beckoned panto for a number of years.

In 2018, Nicholas announced he could return to Coronation Street during an appearance on ITV’s daytime show This Morning.

Speaking to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Nicholas said the door was still open for Andy to return to Weatherfield.

Holly said: “He went to Spain and then he never came back. He was never killed, the door was left open, they will visit him quite frequently. “

Andy replied, “Well, I’m a good excuse that when everyone needs a real vacation they send them to Spain to come and see me. “

At this time, Nicholas was still involved in a popular TV show as he supported his 13-year-old daughter as she sought to take The Voice Kids by storm with her audition.
