What is My Mum Tracy Beaker about?
The official BBC teaser reads: "Jess Beaker loves her life with her mum Tracy, until famous footballer Sean Godfrey enters the picture!"
Tracy is now a mum living on a rough housing estate in London with her nine-year-old daughter, struggling to make ends meet.
Sean is a childhood friend of Tracy's, who is now a professional footballer and he wants to whisk the pair away from their dreary London life.
Harmer has spoken about reading the script for the first time.
She said “As soon as I read it I was like, ‘This is exactly how Tracy would be as a mum’,
“Her daughter is amazing. They’re kind of complete opposites to be honest with you. Obviously, Tracy kind of just speaks before she thinks – she’s very emotional, she’s very feisty.
"Whereas Jess is a bit more reserved. She’s a bit more chilled, she is really intelligent.
“But those two together, it’s just a match made in heaven. They’re not only mother and daughter, they’re friends as well and I think that comes across in the show."
