What will happen with Justine in My Mum Tracy Beaker?

Currently, we don't know what Justine's storyline will be in the show - but a teaser trailer shows Tracy and daughter Jess walking into their kitchen and seeing Justine drinking a glass of red wine.

In the clip, Jess says: "Are you Justine Littlewood?", to which Justine replies: "You've told her about me?"

When Tracy says: "Oh yeah", Justine replies: "I deny everything".

Speaking about Justine in the new show, Montanna told the BBC: "She's more ambitious than ever... and ambitious is a kind word! Now, I actually think she was more obsessed with Tracy than she let on. Justine’s quite jealous of Tracy and wants what Tracy has. I even think Justine's a bit meaner this time around, she takes it a bit far."

When is My Mum Tracy Beaker on CBBC?

The three-part series will air on Friday 12 February at 5pm, with the second and third episode following on Saturday and Sunday at the same time.
