After the successful series The Story of Tracy Beaker and Tracy Beaker Returns, Tracy Beaker returns to our on-screen lives. The new CBBC spin-off series started in February 2021. After watching Tracy Beaker live her own life struggles on-screen, we now get to see Tracy live through struggles with her own daughter Jess. Curious to know who will star in the new My Mum Tracey Beaker series? We got you. Here’s the cast of the new spin-off series, My Mum Tracey Beaker, and the consequent plot.
What’s the series about?
The official BBC summary is as follows: “Jess Beaker loves her life with her mum Tracy until famous footballer Sean Godfrey enters the picture!” (The Sun, 2021).
Even though Harmer’s character is still one of the main ones, the story is told from the perspective of her child daughter, Jess. As Tracy and Jess try to scrape by in their home in London, life turns upside down when Tracy rekindles with her childhood friend Sean. Everything starts going classically crazy, but can Jess influence the events in their life?
Dani Harmer as Tracy Beaker
Dani Harmer, only 13-years old when starring in the original series, returns in the new series as a 30-year-old mom with a daughter. We will follow Harmer as she deals with struggles in her own life as well as that of her daughter.
Emma Davies as Jess Beaker
In the new series, Tracy has a daughter Jess who will be portrayed by the young actor Emma Davies. We are looking forward to seeing this one show off her skills and her signature curly hair after her mum Tracy!
Montana Thompson as Justine Littlewood
Thompson returns as the arch-nemesis of Tracy, played by Harmer. Hopefully, we will get to see the two grow within their relationship as the two never saw eye to eye when younger in the original series.
Jordan Duvigneau as Sean Godfrey
Duvigneau’s character reappears on the show as Tracy’s childhood friend who went on to have a professional football career. Sean returns to the series and is known to become Tracy’s new boyfriend in the series.
Lisa Coleman as Granny Cam
As the adoptive parent of Tracy, Granny Cam returns to play grandmother to Jess. Coleman also reprised her roles back in the Tracy Beaker Returns series in 2010 and 2012. It will be good to see her back in the cast!
Christina Tam as Rosalie
Christina Tam will play a new character in the series and will star as Rosalie. Rosalie is set to be Sean Godfrey’s housekeeper, played by Duvigneau.
Danielle Henry as Miss Oliver
As Jess is a young girl, a lot of her life will be in the school setting. Henry is set to play Jess’s teacher. Her character is called Miss Oliver.
Noah Leacock as Tyrone
Leacock, known for appearing on Coronation Street, is set to play the character Tyrone in the new series. As Tyrone is a new character, we will have to wait and see what he will bring into the plot.
