Andrew Richard "Andy" McDonald is the twin brother of Steve and son of Jim and Liz.

Andy moved to Coronation Street with his family as a fifteen-year-old in 1989. Brainy and conscientious, he nevertheless got into his share of scrapes as a teenager, often acts of rebellion against pressure to be the achiever of the family. In 1993, he dropped out of Sheffield University to marry his girlfriend Amy Nelson, but had his heart broken when she returned to her boyfriend in Trinidad.

Andy worked his way up to assistant manager at Bettabuy supermarket before going back to university in 1994. While studying, he worked part-time as a barman at the Rovers. His other girlfriends included Paula Maxwell and Anne Malone, the latter of whom he lived with for a while until he was driven away by her obsessive tendencies. In 1997, he nearly dropped out of university again due to the trauma of being caught up in Gerry Turner's armed siege at 11 Coronation Street, but went on to graduate with a 2:2 in Combined Studies.

Often embarrassed by the behaviour of the rest of his family, in 1997 he had enough of them and left for a new life in Barcelona, where he became an English teacher. He has made occasional returns to the Street, most recently for Steve's wedding to Becky Granger in 2009.
