Born in Chelsea to Vincentian parents, Andi initially presented CITV’s Free Time (16th September – 23rd December 1988) and briefly provided the continuity links on CITV in summer 1988. However, he reached a much wider audience with Edd the Duck and Wilson (an arm purporting to be that of a butler) in The Broom Cupboard segments on Children’s BBC, which he presented from 29th May 1989 until 3rd September 1993.
He appeared in the school holiday series But First This! (10th July 1989 – 1st September 1989 and 12th July 1993 – TBC). He was a presenter on The O-Zone (1989) and guest-presented on Going Live! (6th March 1993). He co-presented The Red Nose Awards (1994 – 1996) and Antiques Roadshow – The Next Generation (1992 – 1993). He left The Broom Cupboard to present Live and Kicking, alongside Emma Forbes and John Barrowman (1993 – 1996). One well-remembered moment was when Terry Nutkins brought a tarantula into the studio for his animal slot and put it in Peters’ hands, in an attempt to help him overcome his arachnophobia. After a few seconds, the tarantula moved and Peters dropped it on the studio floor. Andi’s exit from the show was voted one of the biggest tear-jerking moments in TV history by Channel 4. He also presented: Take Two (22nd October 1993 – 1994); EEK (BBC One, 1994); Short Change (1996). He returned to CBBC for Hacker’s Birthday Bash: 30 Years of CBBC (2015).
