Andrew Cooper is the younger brother of Simon Cooper who is frequently seen to be the "butt" of his jokes. Simon is the first to learn how to drive, having passed his practical test (in dubious circumstances) before Christmas and triumphantly takes a games console from his prematurely smug brother as spoils of an evident earlier bet, upon announcing his success to his family. This is probably the only time Simon is seen to best his brother. Normally, Andrew frequently seems to best Simon in almost every way, not the other way round.

Simon and Andrew do not seem to be close. For example in 'Camping Trip' on hearing that the family may have to move to Swansea in order for Allan to avoid redundancy, Simon suggests that he share a flat with Jay and that Andrew can live with them. Andrew bluntly rebuffs this idea. He is More Popular and More Liked at School than Simon, Andrew appears in six episodes all together, often with only a small part.


Andrew does not respect Simon's privacy and takes every opportunity to embarrass him in front of his friends and girlfriends, often outwitting him. A prime example of this is during the 'Bunk Off' episode when Andrew begins to tell Simon in front of his friends how the whole school was laughing at him painting 'I love Carli D'Amato' on her driveway: 'He made you look a right knob' was the comment from Jay.
