Cracker Bacon

School Days: 1997-2002

Cracker was Grange Hill's latest wheeler-dealer, and will never miss an opportunity to line his pockets. He gets his name from Robbie Coltrane because of his size and funny ways. Along with Tom, Lisa and Matt he was a founder member of the Double Dare Gang. Academically, Cracker was not brilliant and found the sixth form hard-going and despite Miss Carver's best efforts, decided he was best out of school. It was Ozzie Osbourne of all people who persuaded him to return to school, but did he survive the fire to resume his studies?
Year 7: Cracker forms the Double Dare gang with Lisa, Matt and Tom. He dresses up as Mrs Holmes and impersonates her in class. He carries it off beautifully but the real Holmes gets back early and Dai Hard rumbles him.

Year 8 Cracker is the brains behind the mouse-racing scam. The staff raid the first "meet" in the sports hut.

Year 9 Cracker takes a waiting job at The Arches. He sells Ray's old sandwiches in school and gives Mrs Holmes a stomach upset! Mr Robson seizes his assets.

Year 10 The Double Dare Gang launch an "alien invasion"; Cracker dresses as an alien and frightens the living daylights out of a drunken Mr Robson!

Year 11 Lisa persuades the lads to dance in her talent show entry. Cracker offers his moral support as Matt awaits cancer surgery.

Year 12 Cracker feels a failure at school and leaves. He takes a job at The Hub and is used as a lackey for delivery Chris' fake money. Ozzie saves him from a beating and persuades him to return to school.

ASSOCIATES: Tom Smith, Lisa West, Gemma Lyons, Matt Singleton, Ozzie Osbourne

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Still on the missing list after the fire. If Cracker resumed his studies he's doing it away from Grange Hill.
