Speaking about the new book to The Observer, Jacqueline previously explained: "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’.

"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.

In the sequel, Tracy is set to be in and out of work and living as a single mother in a council house in London, but Jaqueline confirmed she will be getting her ‘happy ending.'

My Mum Tracy Beaker is out in October 2018.
