Andrew admitted in a 2019 newspaper interview that the couple had separated and he now lives alone.
And in an episode of How To Fail around this time, You magazine columnist podcast Elizabeth Day, he said, “Sometimes having casual sex with people is what you have to do. It’s really important…
“You learn from people. It’s not about how long you spend with someone.
He added: “My life is different now. I feel like my attitude towards relationships and my attitude towards myself and sexuality and all that has changed, and that’s because of having had the courage to be alone for a while, one thing pretty scary to do.
