Matthew Singleton

School Days: 2001-2002

Matt was the shy member of the Double Dare Gang, someone who needed time to think about a scam before proceeding with it. He lived with his retirement-age mother, and has more luck with girls thanks to his sensitive nature. Matt's outlook on life has been changed by his cancer scare and, as he recovers from the illness, is gradually learning to live life and have fun once again.
Year 7 Matt's dare is to plant a stink-bomb on Dai Hard's chair. Dai Hard was left foaming at the mouth. Matt followed Tom with a camera as he streaked around the school.

Year 8 Matt initially rebuffs Gemma's attentions but they became close friends. Sean forces Matt to plant drugs on Wayne, and holds him at knifepoint in the toilets to stop him squealing. Eventually Gemma persuades Matt to confess all to Mr Robson.

Year 9 Matt consoles Gemma when her parents announce divorce plans. The gang storms her new boarding school with the others, in an abortive "rescue" attempt. He later becomes friendly with Tracy.

Year 10 The others set Matt up with two unsuccessful blind dates, but soon he found his own girlfriend, a beautiful Australian called Sylvie.

Year 11 Matt attends the testicular cancer lecture. During self-examination he finds a lump, and is understandably terrified.

Year 12 Matt is recovering and back at school. Briony helps him overcome his fears and they have a brief fling. Matt and Tom help Lisa overcome her agoraphobia and, when Briony starts being sick, Matt think he's got her pregnant. Soon he realises she is bulimic and vows to help her.
