Andrew Richard "Andy" McDonald is the twin brother of Steve and son of Jim and Liz. Andy arrived in Coronation Street with his family as an adolescent in 1989. Studious and conscientious, he was very different from his brother Steve, although he did get into several scrapes as a teenager.
Andy passed his exams and went to university but dropped out, much to his parents' dismay, as he wanted to settle down with his girlfriend Amy Nelson with whom he shortly afterwards split up with. He worked at a supermarket as a trainee manager for a while, but eventually returned to university and graduated in 1997, whereupon he moved to Spain as a teacher of English.
- Andy was axed in 1997 by then-producer Brian Park as a way to shake up the street. Actor Nicholas Cochrane however still made guest appearances, mostly for family occasions. His final on-screen appearance was on 20th August 2009.
