The show will see Sean, a childhood friend of Tracy's, return into her life and try and whisk her and Jess away from their London life.
Speaking about reading the script for the first time, Dani said: “As soon as I read it I was like, ‘This is exactly how Tracy would be as a mum’.

"But those two together, it’s just a match made in heaven. They’re not only mother and daughter, they’re friends as well and I think that comes across in the show."
The cast of the show are as follows:
