"Thanks so much to everyone involved, and no matter where we chart, I just want to thank everyone for supporting and believing in us, and the unbelievable team we have," Andy continued. "Now let's make "When She Was Mine' a smash hit!!! Xxx."

"This is basically just me thanking my family for all the unconditional support & help with no guarantee of any return or success. None of this could be done without our families love and support over the years x."
