Who is Sean Godfrey?

Sean and Tracy have known each other since childhood, and has always admired her independent spirit.

He grew up without money, but his life dramatically changed when he became a successful footballer.

Sean recently retired, and now owns a chain of gyms, and a huge luxury house with a swimming pool and full-time housekeeper.

In My Mum Tracy Beaker, Sean approaches her when she goes to his gym - and she at first doesn't recognise him.

However, the two become reacquainted, and Tracy goes out to a club with him, with the pair getting photographed by the paparazzi.

He later tells her: "I always wanted you to like me, but I just never knew how" - and the pair are then seen getting close, much to the dismay of Tracy's daughter Jess.
