Where is Andrew Scarborough now?

Andrew left Emmerdale after two years on the soap, sharing an emotional behind the scenes video at the time.

He told his fans: "Thank you to the fans, because the show isn't capable of existing without the fans, and I've had such lovely feedback and backing from the fans about Graham.

"I don't think they initially understood what he's about – nobody does, actually, I still don't know what he's about. But people have bought into it, they've bought into the magic and mystery of him and it was a bit special.

"I think it's better to go while there's still the mystery, because there's plenty about him. I just want to say thank you very much, and I'm close to tears, actually."

He went on to star as colonel Fielding in the Film The War Below in 2021.

As for his private life, Andrew is happily married to his wife Brianna Keller.
