The new world of Grange Hill and its distractions made it hard for Ed and best friend Alex to carry on as before. Ed wants to have a good time and will get in with anyone who can offer it to him. But following Alex's suicide attempt the pair have emerged with a stronger bond. But why is Ed not keen to encourage Tigger to get with Alison?

Background
  Year 7 Ed finds Tigger's company more fun, leaving Alex to fend for himself. He later confesses to Alison he's embarrassed to be seen with Alex. But following Alex's suicide attempt, Ed realises what a moron he's been and their old friendship is repaired.

Year 8 Ed, Tigger, Alex and Alison launch the G-1 car races for the Enterprise scheme. Ed tells everyone he's going to Disneyland in the summer and a friend can come if they pay. Tigger wants to go but is broke. Ed sends Chloe packing when she threatens to tell the world about his problems at home.

Year 9 Ed and Tigger withdraw their labour when Alex is unable to pay them on his smoothie stall. He is unaware of the hold the Humphries have over him. Ed is unable to forgive when Alex steals his digital camera to keep the Humphries sweet, until Alison reminds him of how he risks letting his best mate down again. Ed and Tigger's radio magic enterprise is a runaway success but Mr McDonnell suspects they are conning everyone.

Year 10 Ed is unwilling to help when Tigger asks his advice on wooing Alison. It's later revealed Alison has been seeing him over the summer - the gang are furious he lied to them especially Tigger and Alex who both hold a candle for her. Alison dumps Ed, and the gang is reconciled.
