As she cannot go out with her friends, Toby (later replaced by Jack) and Sam, the trio end up spending most of their time in Dani's house in a den hang-out.
From the second series Jack, is introduced and replaces Toby as a regular character and best friend of Dani. The house that was used in series one is not used in series two, due to the fact that Dani's family moved house in the final episode.
