Tracy Beaker will be back on CBBC

Dani Harmer as Tracy Beaker

Tracy Beaker is coming back to CBBC and this time she's the grown-up in charge of mischievous children.

A brand new 13-part series - currently being called Beaker's Back - will be shown on TV in 2010.

The series picks up Tracy as a young adult trying to write and sell a book about being in care, called The Story of Tracy Beaker.

But it doesn't go according to plan and Tracy ends up at the Dumping Ground, only this time she's working there!

Dani Harmer will be back as Tracy, and said: "I'm delighted to be returning to the role of Tracy Beaker and finding out how things are developing for her as a young adult."

Newsround interviewed Dani recently and we asked her if Tracy was going to be back on our screens.

Unlike the character she plays, Dani was very careful with her words, saying: "Now that would be telling. I can't say anything, I'm sorry. You never know, one day."

Just in case that's not enough Dani for you, her other CBBC show Dani's House is also coming back for another two series.
