Tracy Beaker is back for ANOTHER spin-off series as Dani Harmer returns after huge reboot success

THE Beaker Girls are back in a brand new series after the success earlier this year of My Mum Tracy Beaker.

Dani Harmer will return as Tracy Beaker and Emma Maggie Davies as her book-smart, sassy, surprisingly tough daughter Jess in the new five-part series, The Beaker Girls.

The series will air later this year on CBBC and BBC iPlayer.

The story will tell how the Beaker Girls are loving their new life running the ‘Dumping Ground’ junk shop in the quirky seaside town of Cooksea.

The wheeler-dealer duo are making new friends, but also enemies and a whole lot of trouble.

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 Jess might not be so ready to share her mum.

Other familiar faces returning include, Jordan Duvigneau as Sean Godfrey,  Lisa Coleman as Cam, Montana Thompson as Justine and Danielle Henry as Mary.

Newcomer Chi-Megan Ennis McLean will play Jordan and Alibe Parsons joins as junk shop owner, Flo.

All previous series of Tracy Beaker are available to watch on BBC iPlayer and The Tracy Beaker Podcast is available on BBC Sounds.

The original TV show first hit screens in 2002 and the CBBC reboot series My Mum Tracy Beaker, showed Tracy as a single mother now in her 30s, alongside daughter Jess.

The original series followed story of Jacqueline Wilson's book of the same name, as a young Tracy grew up in children's home The Dumping Ground.

Rebellious Tracy was known for her rivalry with Justine Littlewood, and often got up to no good after being placed in care by her mum.

The show eventually ended with Tracy being fostered and later adopted by author Cam Lawson, and the character was last seen in 2013 in sequel Tracy Beaker Returns.
