In 2009 he was nominated for a Children's BAFTA award for Best Presenter. Andy is in demand for voice-overs and also writes comedy links for the channel.
Andy especially enjoys the Christmas period as it means pantomime time! He has appeared for many years in CBeebies' annual televised pantomime, playing such colourful roles as Ebeneezer Scrooge in 2013's A Christmas Carol, Captain Hook in 2014's Peter Pan, the Mad Hatter in Alice In Wonderland and also starred in the 2016 version of The Nutcracker.

In 2015 he lit up the stage at the Bristol Hippodrome as Muddles in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, followed by playing Billy Goose in Mother Goose in Sheffield in 2017 and Buttons in Sleeping Beauty in St Albans in 2019.
When not presenting for CBeebies, Andy also stars in his own fantastic family show, Andy's Dino Raps, which is full of interactive fun and catchy raps about everyone's favourite dinosaurs.
Prior to CBeebies, he hosted the quiz show Cash House for Friendly TV and also worked on The Jump Up tour for Nick Jnr.
The latest in the line of mega successful ‘Andy’ shows for the BBC, ‘Andy and the Band’ is a modern day ‘Monkees’ and features Andy’s pop band ‘Andy and the Odd Socks’. A hit show on CBBC, CBeebies and the iPlayer, this music-based comedy drama has proved a hit from the start. Series 2 was filmed in 2021, and keep your ears peeled for some hilarious podcasts coming as well.
‘Andy and the Odd Socks’ launched at Glastonbury in 2017, and have played over 100 shows already and released 2 albums; quite simply the most exciting thing in children's live entertainment. They are patrons of the Anti Bullying Alliance and spearhead the national Anti Bullying Week each year in primary schools. Odd Socks Day (for Anti Bullying Week) was created as a fun and simple way to celebrate that everyone is different, and has been massively popular with over 15,000 schools taking part last year… that’s 5 million kids. The band have made such a difference on how bullying is approached within primary schools.
