Andy has seen Togger evolve into a more responsible young
man, but remains his trusty lieutenant. He's more reluctant
than Togger and Abel to join in with scams, and needs
more convincing to take part. As the most sensitive of
the trio, he's also quite squeamish and often the first
to wimp out of anything!
He lives at home with his parents and sister Kate,
and has a keen interest in computers. Andy's not a spod
but gets his work done and keeps his head down - he
just wants a quiet life. With GCSEs round the corner,
Andy's parents are starting to tire of Togger's influence
- and will do whatever is necessary to keep his mind
on his schoolwork.
REASON FOR LEAVING:
Removed from Grange Hill because his parents believed
Togger was holding him back academically.
Year 7 Andy, Togger
and Abel are the masterminds behind the "sacred undies"
dares. Andy tries talking Togger out of the pool and skeleton
dares to no avail. He also sets up the webcam which leads
to the discovery of Tranter. As an accessory to Tranter
being smuggled aboard the school trip, Andy finds himself
barred from Sports day and ends up dishing out snacks
on Mrs Knuckle's stand.
Year 8: Andy and Emma start going out; Togger
agonises whether to tell him about Miss Dyson's presents.
When the truth comes out Andy is furious that Togger
didn't say anything. The lads come unstuck trying to
find the Grange Hill time capsule on a cross-country
Year 9: Andy acts as mediator between the feuding
Togger and Abel. In the aftermath of Alex's suicide bid,
he signs up for the mentoring scheme.
Year 10: Andy is trapped with Togger and Abel
in a shed full of wild animals. Andy urges Togger to
throw in the towel when his toilets crusade is going
nowhere, but Togger sticks with it. The lads plan a
weekend away with the Marshall twins in Andy's mobile
home; but they are relieved when it is called off.
Year 11: Andy is taken out of Grange Hill by his
parents who are tiring of Togger's bad influence; they
believe Andy is being held back. They part on bad terms
as Togger can't deal with how he is thought of.
ASSOCIATES: Togger Johnson,
Abel Benson, Mr Malachay, Emma Bolton
CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Now
