‘I am really looking forward to starting filming, its my first tv role and im going to try very hard to get it right!’

Whats his fellow class members think of Alex and The Dumping Ground..

‘I love The Dumping Ground, i cant wait to see Alex on TV’! Ella Smith.

I wasnt really looking forward to watching the Dumping ground and I differently got more then I was expecting its really good and I really enjoy it, its one of my favourite cbbc programes! Katie Orland.

At first i thought that The Dumping Ground would be rubbish because Tracy Beaker (Dani Harmer) left but then I watched it and it was brilliant – Joshua Brown.

I love the dumping ground its the best. Cant wait to see the next series! and i like Carmen she’s amazing and pretty- Jenny Hall.
