Tracy Beaker will be coming back again to our screens later this year with a brand new show.
Starring Dani Harmer as a now fully grown-up but still equally irresponsible mum Tracy, she will be accompanied by her new co-star Emma Maggie Davies as her ‘book smart, sassy, surprisingly tough’ daughter Jess.
Riding high on the success earlier this year of My Mum Tracy Beaker – which was watched by over 2 million people in its first three days – the mother-daughter duo is coming back once more.
The five-part series The Beaker Girls will air later this year on CBBC and BBC iPlayer.
And they won’t be the only faces to make a return: Jordan Duvigneau is back as Sean Godfrey, Lisa Coleman as Cam, Montana Thompson as Justine and Danielle Henry as Mary.
Joining The Beaker Girls are also newcomers Chi-Megan Ennis McLean as Jordan and Alibe Parsons as junk shop owner, Flo.

The Beaker girls are loving their new life running the Dumping Ground junk shop in the quirky seaside town of Cooksea.
But they can’t help themselves but get in a whole lot of trouble as this wheeler-dealer duo tries to make new friends, but end up with new enemies.
The Beaker Girls will also bring the story back to where it all began when Jordan, a runaway teen who has been repeatedly failed by the care system, finds her way into the Beaker Girls’ cosy family.

Tracy’s life seems to have come full circle as she contemplates becoming a foster parent. But will Jess ever be ready to share her mum?
Of this new Tracy Beaker outing, Tali Walters, Genre Lead, BBC Children’s In-house Drama, said: ‘The enduring affection of our audiences for the character of Tracy Beaker was clear in the reaction to My Mum Tracy Beaker.
‘The Beaker Girls promises to touch the hearts of our audiences and we’re tremendously excited to work with such a talented cast and crew to bring this captivating mother and daughter back to the screen to unveil their next chapter.’
The Beaker Girls is due to start filming on location in Bristol later this month, and her Tracy Beaker comeback coincides with some other lovely news in Dani’s life.
Earlier this week, the 32-year-old actress announced she was pregnant with her second child.
