26. Louise Goven

Honestly, Louise was on the show for years and never once grew a backbone. She's the classic bystander and never stood up for what was right.

25. Cam Lawson

Cam was kind of a shitty person, she had Tracy in and out of the Dumping Ground all the time and potentially used her so she could write a book about care homes. She also tried to impress a child by stealing a load of free sample crackers. Get it together, Cam.

20. Dolly

Dolly manipulated everyone with her adorableness. She split up Nathan and his girlfriend and gets him in trouble by locking herself in the loo with cleaning products. Not cool Dolly.

The Dumping Ground's resident hottie, she was also a great singer and really pretty lovely to Tracy. Her band could've gone far.

10. Bouncer Plakova

Bouncer was consistently the best, like the time he dressed up as an old lady to get a free alien toy for the kids, or when he made homemade mayonnaise at a bakery.

8. Ben Batambuze

Everyone wanted Ben as a friend, he had so much cool shit. It was a little harsh for him to pretend he lived on the streets but he truly made up for it by being the best DJ to ever walk the earth.

7. Tracy Beaker

Tracy was never without a red fleece and quite possibly had the best hair on British TV in the '00s. She was a bit of a nob most of the time but gave every British kid the gift of "bog off", which I'm sure all parents loved.

6. Peter Ingham

Best friend to Tracy and best friend to all of us. His iconic line "Shut up about my nan!!" is the greatest thing ever to be said on the show.

4. Elaine Boyak

She was ever so slightly annoying but she cared. She comes in at number 4 because of the iconic powersuits and vibrant eyeshadow. Elaine was also the best in the musical episode.

3. Maxy King

The most adorable DG kid, even if he did lock himself in the van once. "It wasn't me" has been used all over the country by kids and politicians alike.

2. Justine Littlewood

She actually did nothing wrong unless you're against great tank tops and side pony tails. Her sass was everything and that yellow bridesmaids dress made fashion history.

1. Duke

In at number 1 is Duke who was the most loveable character to ever grace TV, but if you ever diss his food or mess with his vegetable patch then you are dead. Norman "Duke" Wellington was the king of the Dumping Ground.
