A 47-year-old bus driver revealed how he was named "paedo" and "chased" from his home in North Wales after falling in love with his 16-year-old daughter.
Andy has married Beth Telford, who is now 19 years old, for three years and has returned to their home country in Llandudno for the first time since they were "pushed" to the television show Age Gap Love.
The couple met with his mom Beth and started a relationship when he turned 16, but their life turned upside down when the locals discovered their love.
Beth is now alienated by her mother, but the couple, married in November 2016, are desperate to return home.
Andy recalled the ill-treatment he suffered after the news spread about their relationship, including the time when the word "paedo" was broken in his truck.
"To say it was really dark days, I can not emphasize enough – that's gentle," he said.
"They made me feel like a kind of animal because I go out with a young lady.
"No, I go out with a younger girl because this girl asked me to go out with her and that's a privilege for me and an honor for me to find someone who thinks about it for me."
The couple married at a small ceremony in North Wales and now lives 170 miles away in Lancashire with their two sons, Timmy, two and one year Conway.
Beth explained that the age of 28 had never bothered her, saying: "I always wanted to make a family … so I thought Andy would be the perfect person to do it.
"Age does not bother me, I never did, I do not see him as an old man or my father or something like that."
For the release of Age Gap Love, which will be released on Channel 5 this week, the couple traveled back to their old home in Wales for family vacations.
They have not returned since they left two years ago, but have revealed that their "ultimate goal" is to return permanently – though they do not think it will be easy.
"For forty years I have lived in Wales, my mom was here, my grandmother was here," says Andy.
"Do not be where you came where all your memories are and your family, it is very difficult, it is not easy.
"It kills me all the time, I do not want to be different … we're Beth and Andy and that's it, is not it?"
"The best way to describe our marriage is no different than three years ago, we are the best colleagues," said Andy.
"… What I imagine about Beth … like any normal red hot blood male, it is beautiful, it is alive, its character is fantastic, just everything about it.
"And I think he sees in me the safety – I'm a comfortable pair of slippers.
"And I'm obviously beautiful."
Age Gap Love is on Channel 5 on Tuesday. November 6 at 10.15 pm
