Jun­gle is right up my Andy’s Street!

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS - By KATIE FITZ­PATRICK

ANDY Why­ment’s proud wife says the Coronation Street star is ‘liv­ing his best life’ after swap­ping the fa­mous cob­bles for the jun­gle.

Andy, who plays Kirk Suther­land in Corrie, is cur­rently favourite to win I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! – and his wife Ni­chola says he’s gen­uinely ex­cited to be there.

The soap favourite has won an army of fans since ar­riv­ing as a late­comer to the jun­gle last week.

Ni­chola told OK! mag­a­zine: “Andy is liv­ing his best life in the jun­gle! I think he just showed ev­ery­one how ex­cited he is to be there. I’ve not seen him laugh that much in so long.

“I hope he doesn’t strug­gle too much in the jail camp as he loves his food and sleep.”

Andy has played fac­tory worker Kirk in

Corrie for al­most 20 years and has two chil­dren Thomas, 11, and Hol­lie, nine.

He had fans chuck­ling the mo­ment he ar­rived with fel­low late­comer Cliff Parisi, who is best known as Minty Peter­son in

EastEnders, to bat­tle a Bush­tucker trial called Fron­tier of Fear. Dressed in cow­boy at­tire, they headed to Ol’ Dingo Town as ‘jun­gle out­laws’ in a bid to win gold stars for the main camp be­fore head­ing to the jun­gle jail­house.

One viewer said: “Andy Why­ment has only been in the jun­gle five min­utes and he has al­ready made me laugh way more than any­one else has in the past 5 days. The hero we didn’t know we needed.” Another said: “The new celebri­ties only been on the show about 25 min­utes, and Andy Why­ment has fast be­come my new favourite to win this year. Please, peo­ple, let’s just vote him to do every trial be­cause that was hys­ter­i­cal.”
