Episode guide
Floss The Foundling
 Perfect Match is the 11th episode and mid-season premiere of the fourth season of The Dumping Ground. It was first broadcast on 30th September 2016 at 4:30pm on CBBC and CBBC HD.


After falling out with her mum on discovering she is pregnant with another child, Sasha puts herself up for fostering and meets a couple who, like her, have dwarfism. Elsewhere Mike encourages the Dumping Ground residents to upcycle old things.


  • First appearances of Warwick Davies as Lou and and Francesca Papagno as Ange.
  • Warwick Davies (Lou) is Annabelle Davies's father in real life. Additionally, he is the seventh actor to have appeared in Doctor Who prior to appearing in a Tracy Beaker programme, after the episodes Tracy Beaker Superstar, Good Luck Boy, Out of Control, The Truth is Out There and Liam's Story.
  • Barring Floss The Foundling (which was a minisode), this was the first full-length episode of The Dumping Ground to carry the new multicoloured CBBC logo on its original broadcast.


  • In a recurring error for every episode of season 4B, the BBC iPlayer's credits page uses the wrong set of credits.
  • Although Harry leaves in this episode, the following episodes will not have the titles with Chloe and Joseph in until Getting to Know You
  • For some reason, Harry says that if he was to get adopted it would have to be Lou and Ange. But he'd only just met them and they knew nothing about each other.
