Tucker Jenkins
RealMedia: Tucker's Luck

Tucker's Luck

A taster of what life could be like after Grange Hill, Tucker's Luck starred Todd Carty (of Eastenders fame). He played an unemployed youth who spent his time chasing girls and going to the youth club.

When Tucker Jenkins left Grange Hill, so many fans were upset that writer Phil Redmond decided to write an off-shoot drama starring Tucker.

He finally got it together with Trisha Yates, a girl at Grange Hill he hadn't really known, and ended up going to night-school and starting a career in painting and decorating.
