She was the hugely popular children’s TV show star but now Tracy Beaker is set to return but with a twist.
Jacqueline Wilson who wrote the book in 1991 has announced that Tracy is going to return as a single mum who lives on a rough council estate in London.
Talking to The Guardian she said:
“When I realised just how long ago it was since I wrote the first Tracy Beaker book, I thought: if we were in real time, Tracy herself would be in her 30s.
“And I’ve always thought that, even though Tracy had lots of problems in her life and a pretty rubbish mum who was never there for her, Tracy herself would be a good mum, no matter what.”
She continued to say:
“Being Tracy, she wants to be independent, but with a child, how can she be?
“So she’s having to scratch around.”
We have to say we are super excited to see her come back and really hope there is going to be a new series.
