The official trailer for the brand new Tracy Beaker spin-off has been released!
The iconic CBBC show, which was adapted from Jacqueline Wilson’s 1991 book ‘The Story of Tracy Beaker’, is making a return with Dani Harmer reprising her role as the one and only Tracy Beaker.
Adapted from Jacqueline Wilson’s 2018 book ‘My Mum Tracy Beaker’, the spin-off is also called My Mum Tracy Beaker as it follows lives of Tracy Beaker and her 11-year-old daughter Jess.
Jacqueline Wilson’s official synopsis for her ‘My Mum Tracy Beaker’ book states: “Jess thinks Tracy is the best mum ever, even when she shouts at her teachers! Tracy has made the perfect home for Jess, leaving The Dumping Ground far behind her. Yes, their flat’s a bit mouldy. It’s only just big enough for two. And the Duke Estate is a bit scary. But it’s their happy home. Until Sean Godfrey, Tracy’s rich boyfriend, whisks them away to his mansion, life of fast cars and celebrity stardom. Will Jess’s brilliant mum turn into a new person altogether?”
Tracy Beaker’s arch-nemesis Justine Littlewood is also making a return and can be seen in the trailer!
Many fans have expressed their excitement for the new series as they’ve stated that they will still be watching despite entering into adulthood since the show’s release in 2002:
“I am a fully grown adult but 5pm Friday, I am putting Tracy Beaker on and I’m very excited for it.”
“I don’t care if I’m grown. I’m watching this.”
“30 year old and I’ve just put this on series record. I loved Tracy beaker as a kid,”
“Yah I might be turning 21 in a couple of months time, but if you think for a second that I won’t be watching #TracyBeaker on Friday, You’ll be Wrong!”
My Mum Tracy Beaker will air this Friday (February 12) on CBBC at 5pm and yes, we will definitely be watching!
