Dani was just 13-years-old when The Story of Tracy Beaker first aired, and since then, she has appeared in a number of TV shows following Tracy Beaker's TV success, including Dani's House and Dani's Castle. The best-selling author has revealed that she is writing a new Tracy Beaker novel, with the popular character returning as a single mum living in London with her nine-year-old daughter, Jess.

But unlike Tracy who was a mouthy teenager, Jacqueline says Jess "is much quieter, more timid and anxious about what other people think of her".

Jacqueline says she was inspired to revamp the award-winning book series after seeing that people were still interested in Tracy and her story. "Tracy has been a character that's haunted me".

The iconic children's character is making a comeback.but now she's in her 30s!

Speaking to The Observer, Jacqueline added that she is close to finishing the book - "I think I'm getting to the end but sometimes things take me by surprise" - and that it is due for release in October.

Vectura was 7.1% lower at 75.55 pence early Monday, the worst performer in the FTSE 250, while shares in Hikma were down 2.8% at 873.00p.

'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 wanted the sequel to be realistic saying: "How many young women without much education earn enough, with a daughter, to be able to buy their own home in London today?"

The former child star is instantly recognisable in her many social media snaps and looks like she hasn't aged a day since she last appeared on TV screens in Strictly. "So she's having to scratch around".

It will be interesting to see Tracy as a mum and we're sure that she'll still be as feisty as ever!
