Madi Diamond is a classic Princess: needy, vain, gorgeous and high maintenance! Madi was the apple of her father’s eye when her parents were together and took the break-up of their marriage personally – why would her dad leave her? As a result Madi’s self-confidence is on the floor. She desperately seeks affirmation and wants to be adored.
Following in her father’s footsteps, Madi has grown into quite a vain creature – spending hours applying make-up, fake tan and false eyelashes. Given free reign of her dad’s credit card, Madi will think nothing of spending big wads of his cash on getting her eyelashes permed, if it makes her more eligible. We first meet Madi when their mother publically dumps her with her younger brother Zack at Waterloo Road and she comes face to face with her biggest competitor for her dad’s affections – Sian.
Used to getting her own way, Madi will get into sulk if she doesn’t, which Lauren, Trudi or Vicki would have no patience for…She soon finds Ronan’s easy-going, cocky sense of humour reassuring, and his confident attitude builds her own confidence. Madi becomes a devoted friend to him, but their friendship grates on Vicki.
After Sian and her dad Jez split up, Madi decides that she wants to go live with Sian Diamond rather than go away with her dad, even though she hated Sian at the beginning. They both eventually move back to their Mums.
In Series 8 having fallen out with her mother Madi moves to Scotland to stay with Sian. Her brother, Zack stays with their mother. Madi stays at the school in Scotland until Series 8 Episode 8 (The Price of Love) where she gets a Job on a cruise ship.
