Character Bio

Des White is aged 18 and is the Kitchen Porter

Des and Minty share a love of pranks and a torch for Beena. But whatever their feelings for girls, nothing's going to stand in the way of their friendship. Ever since their days at the Hillvale Children's Home, they've been inseparable.

It was when they were sleeping rough in Birmingham, that Billy found them and took them on. Des has never had a real family and with Billy at the helm and Minty by his side, the kitchen's what he now thinks of as home.


Des is both Minty’s sidekick and his saviour. Ever since Des cheered up Minty’s life at Hillvale Children’s Home, the two have been inseparable. They left the home together, and Billy took them on after finding them sleeping rough in Birmingham. In care since he was born, Des has never had a real family, but with living in the lively staff quarters and clowning around with Minty in the kitchen Crossroads now feels like one.

The lack of affection in Des’s early life meant that he longs for a family of his own, but his natural shyness and slight air of desperation means that he has little success with women.

He was shocked to discover that Mandy was pregnant and despite her claims, he is convinced that the baby is his, as they had a one night stand. Although he has little money he is determined to pay for DNA testing and discover the truth.

Des eventually found out that he was not the father, and following Mandy’s death he had a string of girlfriends including the lovely Sally Hamilton and Abbie Baker.
