Tracy Beaker is returning with some brand new stories in a new CBBC podcast on BBC Sounds.
The Tracy Beaker Podcast is based on the Tracy Beaker books by beloved children’s author Dame Jacqueline Wilson.
BBC tease: "Each episode follows the adventures of Tracy and her friends, as well as the occasional enemy along the way. Having grown up in care, Tracy hates soppy fairy stories but secretly longs for her own happily ever after. Through the trials and tribulations, will Tracy find a foster family of her own?
"The series offers a fresh new audio adaptation for existing fans of the books and TV series as well as the chance for young audiences to listen in to and be enthralled by Tracy’s world, through wonderful audio storytelling for the first time."

Justine is played by Ashirah Foster Notice, Peter is played by Jude Riordan, Louise is played by Poppy O’Brien, Cam is played by Lyndsey Marshal, Elaine is played by Krissi Bohn and Jenny is played by Rina Mahoney.
Helen Bullough, Head of Children’s In House Production, says: "Whether listeners are discovering Tracy Beaker for the first time or revisiting a childhood classic, her story is timeless. Feisty but with a heart of gold, we hope audiences enjoy Tracy’s adventures and the havoc she causes along the way!"
