The reality star-turned-singer said he has always just wanted to focus on his music.
Viewers had followed Andy's romances, dramas and heartbreaks on MIC when he made his debut during the fourth series in 2012. But it was some two and a half years later in July 2015 that he confirmed he had quit the show.
At the time, Andy decided to leave to focus on his lifestyle brand, Jam Industries, and his solo career, explaining that he was unable to commit to the show's long filming hours.
Now, Any has told The Sun online: "In hindsight I wish I hadn't done it the way I have, I wish I had never gone on at all.
"When I left TV I didn't really want to be on TV, I just wanted to write music. In London it is hard because there is so many things distracting you."
Having already toured the UK and performed at gigs up and down the county, Andy said that he is actually developing a big fan base stateside.
"At the moment I am doing better in the US than the UK, and it is the fastest growing fan base I've got," he said.
Andy also revealed that other than writing a lot of house music, he is singing for a house DJ, but can't say who it is. With an upcoming gig at Radio One's Big Weekend in Exeter, Andy added: "Glastonbury is my number one goal, but not yet."
