His wife, Melody Lang, told the Daily Mail that he was buried last Thursday.

Andrew was born in 1930 in Berlin to a Jewish father and a Catholic mother. When he was 8 years old, he and his family moved to England to escape the Nazis.

He took on the role of Manuel in the 1970s, and since then has made several appearances in soaps such as Coronation Street.

Our thoughts are with his wife and three children.
