Maria Watts

School Days: 1991-1994

Maria lived at home with her overbearing father. In school she was a popular member of the girls' camp; loyal to her friends and up for a laugh. At primary school Maria was chess champion - her dad pushed her into it - and at Grange Hill it was something she'd rather forget. In the sixth form tension increased at home; fed up with being told how she should dress, Maria turned goth and made a public stand against her father. Her rebellious behaviour spilled over into school and could have rebounded on her; thankfully the support of Justine helped bring back the old Maria.

Year 10: Maria is introduced in episode one, she's feeling unwell. She joins the others on the trip to Dartmoor and becomes attracted to Jamie, the son of the centre owner. Fran also fancies him and the pair's friendship is strained.

Year 11: Fran and Maria pursue Natalie, unaware it was Natasha who slagged off Chrissie. Maria and Richard start a customised trainer enterprise, easily hoodwinking Ray into buying a pair!

Year 12: Maria fancies Richard, but he's slow to realise.

Year 13: Maria is fed up with her father and has a gothic makeover. She goes off the rails at school and is brought before Mr Robson; things come to a head when father and daughter row in the street. Maria goes to Germany with the choir; she finishes with Richard.

FAMILY: Lived at home with her retirement age father. A domineering man with firm ideas on how his daughter should dress and conduct herself. No wonder things came to a head!

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: I don't think she's living at home!
