It's been a double whammy of good news for Dani recently, as she announced she is expecting her second child earlier this week.

The Strictly Come Dancing finalist revealed the news on her Instagram page, sharing a picture of herself and partner Simon Brough with their 5-year-old daughter holding up some baby scans.

"Han solo had Chewie. Frodo had Sam. Shrek had Donkey," she wrote.

"Now be prepared for the adventures of Avarie-Belle and as of yet unnamed bump, coming February 2022."

My Mum Tracy Beaker is available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
