Tracy Beaker is back and feistier than ever as she becomes a mum – and Dani Harmer has now teased what’s in store.
After meeting the unstoppable ball of energy in the Dumping Ground 20 years ago, Tracy (played by Dani) is returning to our screens with a daughter of her own, Jess (Emma Maggie Davies), to care for.
In My Mum, Tracy Beaker, Jess and Tracy couldn’t be more different if they tried, their bond is as strong as anything – and things seem to be on the up for the duo as Tracy finds herself a fancy boyfriend.
Jordan Duvigneau will play Sean, who was best known as Football during Tracy’s younger years and is now a successful footballer – and after all these years still holds a torch for Tracy.
As the pair prepare for a new life together, obviously it doesn’t take long for things to start going wrong – and for old frenemies like Justine Littlewood (Montanna Thompson) to rear their ugly heads just at the wrong moment for Tracy.
Speaking about what’s to come, actress Dani teased: ‘The audience will be very pleased to know that Justine Littlewood is coming back. So obviously that’s not going to go well.
‘I mean, Tracy and Justine have obviously butted heads since they were younger – and nothing’s changed there really.’
The upcoming three special episodes marks the 30th anniversary of the Tracy Beaker books, written by Jacqueline Wilson.
Fans have been eagerly waiting for the character’s return since it was announced in August last year.
Emma was revealed to be playing Jess back in October, and said she was thrilled that her first big role was playing the iconic character’s daughter.
‘It was so awesome to start work on the show as me and my brother have watched Tracy Beaker for as long as I can remember, we are huge fans!’ she said.
‘Filming so far has been fantastic, everyone is really nice and friendly and I’m having the best time.’
My Mum, Tracy Beaker is yet to be given a release date by CBBC.
