TRACY Beaker star Dani Harmer has revealed she would consider giving I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 'a go' - but not while it’s in Wales.

The Story Of Tracy Beaker, which ran on CBBC from 2002 to 2005, focused on the lives and experiences of young people in care. It is set at a residential care home that Tracy – played by Harmer – nicknames The Dumping Ground when she is placed there aged 10.

Now, 20 years since the character (invented by author, Dame Jacqueline Wilson) was first on our screens, she’s back – and she’s a mum.

And Berkshire-born Harmer, 31, jumped at the chance to play Tracy once again.

“I was just so excited because I’m like everyone else; I just really wanted to know what happened to Tracy. Where did she go?” Harmer said.

Now in her 30s, Tracy is doing everything she possibly can to give her 10-year-old daughter Jess (Emma Maggie Davies) the best start possible in life, working multiple jobs to keep a roof over their heads.

The three-part drama, which is based on Wilson’s 2018 sequel book, is told from Jess’ perspective as their lives are changed drastically by the arrival of Tracy’s rich new boyfriend, Sean Godfrey (Jordan Duvigneau), who is a recently retired football star.

Harmer, who has a four-year-old daughter Avarie-Belle with her partner, Simon Brough, loved the relationship between Jess and Tracy, explaining “they’re not just mother and daughter, they’re friends as well. They tell each other everything, and they have loads of fun”.

Harmer was 12 when she filmed the first series of The Story Of Tracy Beaker, her first big leading role.

“It kind of changed me really and it made me 100 per cent sure that this was what I wanted to do as a job,” she reflects.

Harmer, who owns a performing arts academy in Berkshire, was a contestant on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing in 2013 (she reached the final with her partner Vincent Simone).

Asked if she would she do any other reality TV shows in the future? Harmer replied: "Maybe I’d give the Jungle (I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!) a go… But not while it’s in Wales,” she said, chuckling.

“I’d want to go to Australia; if I’m going to be away from my family, I at least want to get a suntan, and I feel like I’m not going to do that in a castle. So, I would love to do it when it goes back to the jungle.

“I mean, I love having a challenge, so I would pretty much take on anything, to be honest with you. As long as I was going to have fun doing it.”

I'm A Celeb 2020 was held at Gwrych Castle, Abergele.

The show drew in 11.2 million viewers across the series (12.1m viewers watched the final).

My Mum Tracy Beaker airs over consecutive days from Friday, February 12, with all episodes dropping at once on BBC iPlayer from that date too.
