She admitted: ‘Being a mother myself, it completely changes you. So it’s been really nice to play Tracy and see how she’s lost that selfishness that she once has and she’s all just about Jess.

Dani began playing the iconic role of Tracy Beaker in 2002 when she was just 12-years-old.
And the former Strictly star reminisced about growing up famous, and noted how at one point, she didn’t want to be known as Tracy Beaker after being constantly called by her alter-ego’s name.
She said ‘When I was younger, I used to get called Tracy a lot more than I got called Dani. At one point I was like “oh, can I just not be Tracy, just for a minute!”.
