His wife, an English journalist, and broadcaster, took nine months break to take care of her husband after he suffered a stroke back in 2013. Andrew suffered a stroke in early January 2013 after a strenuous workout that led him to take a nine-month break from his Sunday morning show.

Jackie’s unconditional love for Andrew had remained as vivid as it was in the past in spite of numerous claims of infidelity against the political analyst. In 2003 there were rumors of him having another child from his extra-matrimonial affair. He was alleged of having a baby daughter with an anonymous reporter, but a DNA test in 2010 falsified the claims of him being the biological father of the unnamed child.

His other affair includes kissing a female TV Producer outside a bar in Fitzrovia on 8 September 2012. He was heavily drunk at the moment and in his defense claimed that he felt embarrassed annoyed with himself that she was leaving and tried to part with a goodbye fleck.
