It appears Tracey wasn't wrong when she said her mum Carly Beaker would be a famous movie star.

Ruth plays Lady Violet Bridgerton in the hit period drama, which has taken the giant streaming platform by storm.

Fans flooded Twitter after noticing the iconic character's mum as one wrote: "Me: wait a sec, that's Tracey Beaker's mum!! #Bridgerton."

This shocked fan added: "omg Tracey Beaker’s mum #Bridgerton."

A third fan chimed in: "the fact that Tracey Beaker’s actual mother (from the film) comes in this is bewildering and plays the mother…. can’t unsee it #bridgertonnetflix#Bridgerton."

While this user claimed: "I absolutely LOVED #Bridgerton on Netflix but I could not see Lady Violet Bridgerton as anyone but Tracy Beaker’s mum – she really was a famous actress after all."

In 2004's Tracey Beaker Movie of Me, we discovered that her mother does in fact work in the film industry, but as a stuntwoman rather than the leading lady. 

It's safe to say that those Tracey once lived alongside in The Dumping Ground, would be shocked to see her mum in Bridgeton and realise she was right all along.

Back in October, Dani Harmer begun filming her brand new Tracey Beaker reboot with her on-screen daughter.

Dani, 31, was all smiles as she was filmed on set strolling with her on-screen daughter, and a tall dashing male co-star who could be the father.

After the news was revealed, the actress and 2012 Strictly contestant told The Sun: "I can’t wait to return again to the role of Tracy.

"I’m a fan myself and want to know what happens next and where this journey takes her. Being a mother, I know how much it changes you.

"So I’m looking forward to seeing how it has changed Tracy but still keeping her the same feisty, strong female lead that people know and love."
