Kelvin Fletcher (born 17 January 1984) is an English actor and racing driver, best known for playing Andy Sugden in the ITV soap opera Emmerdale from 1996 until 2016. In 2019, Fletcher won the seventeenth series of Strictly Come Dancing with his professional partner Oti Mabuse.
The Oldham-born actor’s on-screen career began at the age of 12, when he was cast in Emmerdale as tearaway teen Andy Hopwood. Despite only being signed up for three episodes, he ended up starring in the soap for 20 years in over 1500 episodes, eventually taking on his fictional adoptive family surname Sugden.
Two decades of standout storylines earned him many nominations and wins at the British Soap Awards, including Best Actor, Best Dramatic Performance and Scene of the Year. In 2016 he departed Emmerdale to pursue new acting opportunities.
Off-screen, Kelvin is also a self-confessed petrol head, winning the 2012 Silverstone Classic Celebrity Challenge race and competing in the 2016 British Touring Car Championship.
