Bio: More youthful viewers – and their parents – will know Dani as Tracy Beaker, denizen of care home “The Dumping Ground” in Bafta-winning CBBC series The Story of Tracy Beaker. Dani also starred in her own children’s sitcom Dani’s House, and with Nicholas Lyndhurst in BBC1’s After You’ve Gone. She even had a punt at pop stardom with unreleased 2009 album Supeheroes.

No stranger to BBC dance competitions, earlier this year Dani took part in Let’s Dance for Sport Relief, partnering Outnumbered’s Tyger Drew-Honey.
