Who’s in My Mum Tracy Beaker?
Well rather excitingly Dani Harmer is reprising her role as Tracy from the original series. Dani says: “Words can’t describe how excited I am to bring Tracy back! I’m just like all the fans and have been desperate to find out what Tracy has been up to and where her next journey is going to take her. It’s been so lovely to work with some familiar faces too. The script is brilliant and I think the audience is going to love where the story goes.”
She adds: “So Tracy now is a mum! Which is amazing, I think the last time we saw her she was working as a care worker in her 20s. Now she’s in her 30s and she’s a mum so it’s been really cool for me because like everyone else, I really wanted to know what happened next and where Tracy’s journey is going to take her. I think everyone is going to be really pleased seeing how Tracy’s progressed and what a great mum she is.”
Also back are are Tracy’s adopted mum Cam (Lisa Coleman), Tracy’s birth mum Carly (Ruth Gemmell) and her nemesis Justine Littlewood (Montanna Thompson).
Newcomer Emma Davies takes the role of Jess. She says: “I’m really enjoying playing Jess Beaker, she’s such a fun character to play.”
What’s the story?
The story is told from the perspective of Jess, as she and her mum try to scrape by. Unlike with her own mum, Tracy has a strong bond with Jess. But things are turned upside down when Tracy’s new rich ex footballer boyfriend Sean Godfrey (Jordan Duvigneau) arrives on the scene. He wants the high life, but everything soon starts going classically Tracy Beaker pear shaped. Can Jess save the day?
Is there a trailer?
