Danny Hartston

School Days: 2001-2002

Danny was something of a mysterious character, with a James Dean-like air about him. He transferred to Grange Hill from Leaburn - the local trailer trash school - with six GCSEs. He changed school because he wanted to learn but found the much friendlier atmosphere of Grange Hill difficult to get used to. Danny is a passionate anti-smoking crusader after losing his father to lung cancer. He rode into school on a motorbike.

LOVE LIFE: Dated Vikki Meedes shortly after arriving at Grange Hill. But it was not to last, thanks to nemesis Keiran Osbourne.
Year 12: Danny and Mr Hankin get off on the wrong foot. Hankin thought he was selling cigarettes to younger pupils; in fact Ozzie was responsible. When Mr Hankin confiscated Ozzie's cigarettes, Ozzie began a campaign of terror against Mr Hankin, who thought Danny was his tormentor. The truth came out when all three became trapped in the basement; Ozzie was arrested while Danny and Mr Hankin were reconciled.

Year 13: Vikki chucks Danny when he can't bring himself to tell her he wasn't going to university. Soon they get back together. Ozzie manages to woo Vikki away from Danny in a bet with his boss. When Danny finds out he floors Ozzie and his final meeting with Vikki is a bitter one.

FAMILY: Lived with his mum; they're very close. Danny works part time to help her out and will be staying with her rather than go to university.

ASSOCIATES: Vikki Meedes, Ozzie Osbourne, Geoff Hankin.

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Still living at home.
