‘I lied to people for a good two years and it felt great,’ Andrew grinned.

‘My dad and my brother [knew] and my [late] mother at the time. Just kind of us. It was fun to keep it secret because you know when you’re planning a surprise birthday party for someone?

‘And they’re like, “I hate surprises. Tell me, is the party happening?” So it felt like I was part of organizing a surprise birthday party for a bunch of people who I knew would appreciate it.’
