Debbie Vickers

Played by Ashleigh Cummings
 

Debbie is on the surface the good girl: smart, does well at school, bright and funny and not lacking in confidence. She is best friends with Sue. The girls do everything together, support each other through the good times and bad and provide one another with the safety net they need to get through their teenage years. Debbie yearns to become one of the cool Greenhills gang and has the will and the drive to do just about anything to get into it.
