The lucky entrepreneur was also selected for the event last year, meeting with Elma Aveiro, Cristiano’s sister, an official CR7 designer.

Andy said: “One of my dreams came true when I was an opening model for 2017, and I was particularly appreciated for my physique and expressions.

“It was an honor modelling for the CR7 brand, being a huge Cristiano Ronaldo fan myself. I’m a big Manchester United and Real Madrid fan, too, and have kept a great relationship with Elma.”

Meanwhile, determined Andy has worked as a supporting artist (extra) for Warner Bros, Made in Chelsea, and Eastenders, and also runs wrestling website PW Mania.

Andy concluded: “I’m really looking forward to returning to Madeira and taking part.”
