"Being a mother myself I know how much it changes you so I'm looking forward to seeing how it's changed Tracy but still keeping her the same feisty strong female lead that people know and love," Dani said at the time.

It also featured a run in with Tracy's arch-nemesis Justine Littlewood, as well as her foster mum Cam marrying a woman.

Dani celebrated the move, saying she always felt like the character of Cam had been written as a gay woman, despite marrying the terrible Gary in the shows fifth series.

"At last Cam finally got her happy ending!!!" she tweeted.

"We were fuming when she got married off to a man in the original series! It was ridiculous! But so glad Cam got what she deserved! She is a Queen and deserved a Queen in return."

My Mum Tracy Beaker is available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
