Big John Webster is a recurring character in the first, second and third seasons. He is played by guest star John Seaward and debuts in the series premiere. Big John, as he is known by Jay, Simon, Neil and Will is a new student at Rudge Park Comprehensive. He tries to make friends but has yet to work his special magic on the students at Rudge Park Comprehensive.

He is the most seen out of the group of "freaks," which consists of him, David and Susie. There's clearly something wrong with the lad considering that he had a counsellor, and he is extremely overweight. It can also be said that he is rather stupid, as in 'The Field Trip' he is paired up with Will as "he is not good with directions and might get lost". It is also implied that he has poor personal hygiene. This can be justified by the fact that his hair almost always looks untidy and that in the movie when Mr. Gilbert states that he dislikes some pupils for their bad personal hygiene, John is seen smelling his armpit. In Series 2, Episode 1, Will says and I quote, 'The only unspecified carnage we'd witnessed was what Big John had left in the coach toilets.'


Big John is introduced in the first episode of The Inbetweeners, he was a victim of bullying in his previous school and joins Will and the other 'freaks' on their first day, hoping to make a fresh start. Unfortunately for him hopes of a new beginning don't work out well and he often ends up being the butt of peoples jokes.


Despite being socially worse off than the Inbetweeners, John does seem to be on good terms with some of the more 'popular' students. In 'Will's Birthday' John is seen at the party of popular student Louise Graham and appears to have 'pulled' a girl, given that he has his hand on her breast.
