Michael Kevin Lucius "Mike" Milligan MBE, made his first appearance on 8 January 2002 in series 1 of The Story of Tracy Beaker during the episode "Tracy Returns to The Dumping Ground" and departed in "The End!" but he returned in series 5 during the episode "Caring and Sharing" as a temporary care worker. He became head care worker in "Operation Careworker". Mike appeared in all 3 series of Tracy Beaker Returns and the first 7 series of The Dumping Ground. Mike is the longest-serving and the only character in the Tracy Beaker Franchise being in the very first episode back in 2002 as well as appearing in the books although he left in Series 7 Episode 24 in 2019.

Mike is tall and slim, with grey hair and blue eyes. He is portrayed as a lovable, kind but firm guardian to the children in his care, able to deliver anger and humour to the children in equal doses. He has shared many emotional moments with the children. He is seen as a father figure to many of them, in particular to Tracy, Justine, Peter, Carmen, Tee, Gus, and Harry, something they have mentioned.

Mike makes his first appearance in the first episode of The Story of Tracy Beaker; he is a care worker at Stowey House, and has been for some time – he is already on good terms with Tracy Beaker (Dani Harmer), thinking she's a 'good kid on the whole'. He leaves at the end of series 1 after an emergency call in another care home. Mike returns in series 5 as Elm Tree House's new chef. When head care worker, Shelley Appelton (Nicola Reynolds), decides to leave Elm Tree House she holds interviews for possible head care workers, who none of the young people like, so they beg Mike to take up the role, which he does.

The character of Mike returns in Tracy Beaker Returns, appearing in every episode of the show; it is implied that he never left Elm Tree House and continued to act as head care worker. Mike is first seen with Gina Conway (Kay Purcell) when he is saying that they need more staff. He is then seen collecting Liam O'Donovan (Richard Wisker) from the local police station and met up with Tracy (Dani Harmer) after she is arrested for fraud. Mike offers her a job at the Dumping Ground because it is short-staffed, with only himself and Gina working there. As a result of this, Tracy and Mike get to know each other again and become closer. In the third series of the show, Mike is offered an MBE and accepts it, and later in the series, he only just survives when a roof falls on him. Mike continues to appear as Head Care Worker throughout "The Dumping Ground"; in the first episode he leaves to go on holiday, only for chaos to occur at Elm Tree House until he returns at the end of the second episode, although he knows nothing about it as Gina worries he may not take another holiday again. In the eighth episode of the fourth series Carmen Howle (Amy-Leigh Hickman) reports Mike to the police, as Mike's car has been broken into, with Carmen file inside the car, and it had been stolen. However, it is revealed that Ryan Reeves (Lewis Hamilton) took the file as revenge for Mike telling the kids about his history, though he was only protecting Ryan. Mike forgives Ryan and agrees not to tell everyone. They end their feud. He later marries Fiona whom he dated 30 years ago in Series 6 Episode 24.

In the Series 7 episode, "Reunion", it is revealed that he has a twin brother named Peadar, who both grew up in a bad care home. He returns to Ireland, where he was born. He meets his mother, Sheila, and patches up his strained relationship with his brother. In the finale, he decides to leave Ashdene Ridge to return to Ireland, to be with his family. This retcons the backstory of Mike, whose character had originally revealed contradictory elements of his history in Series 5 of The Story of Tracy Beaker. Formally, Mike had suggested that his father had walked out on his mother during his teens, and indicates to Jackie that he does not understand the perspective of living as a child in care. Mike does reveal the existence of his brother during this series, however, while not specifically indicating that this brother is an identical twin.

Occupation Author

Camilla "Cam" Lawson is a struggling turned successful author, and Tracy's eventual adoptive mother.

Camilla makes her début appearance when she visits Stowey House in series 1. Also an aspiring author, Tracy tries to get her attention by unsuccessfully using Adele's makeup. When Camilla reads her stories, she is impressed makes a number of return visits. Having formed a bond with Camilla, Tracy asked her to use her investigative skills to find her birth mother. Camilla initially agrees. However, she abandons her mission having learned from Jenny that her mother has deliberately severed ties with her daughter. Initially upset with Camilla, Tracy forgives her. Having been asked by Tracy on numerous occasions to be her foster mother, Camilla eventually agrees at the end of series 1.

Unfortunately, the foster placement is short lived when Tracy accidentally sets fire to Camilla's kitchen (series 2). With the damages being so severe that Camilla can no longer look after her properly, Tracy returns to the Dumping Ground. Whilst Tracy initially blocks Camilla from her life they eventually make up and rekindle their relationship as friends. Whilst they see each other regularly, Camilla is hesitant to foster her again. When she learns that Tracy is being fostered by Ben's aunt and uncle, she is deeply upset. However, Tracy eventually decides not to be fostered and remains at the Dumping Ground.

In the third season, Camilla leaves for New York for a writing course, but returns after she hears that Tracy is hospitalised for appendicitis. Camilla writes a novel about a girl in care whose character is based upon Tracy. Camillla falls out with Tracy again after the latter reads the ending and discovers that her inspiring character does not get fostered. They eventually reconcile.

In 'The Movie of Me' (between series 3 and 4), Camilla decides to foster Tracy again. However, Tracy's birth mother turns up and initially seems willing to take Tracy back into her care. Tracy goes to find her mum after she leaves, having fallen out with careworkers. Camilla is distraught and as soon as she finds out where she is, she pursues her with Justine in tow. When they find her, Camilla realises that Tracy's mum does not care for her and eventually fosters Tracy.

In series 4, Camilla and Tracy are happily living together again. Tracy often returns to the Dumping Ground to visit her friends.

In series 5, Camilla and Tracy are on holiday in Egypt, where Camilla develops a relationship with Gary. When they return to England, Tracy angrily returns to the Dumping Ground when Gary moves in. Having shunned Camilla once again, they reconcile in and Tracy starts to bond with Gary. This is short lived Camilla reveals that she and Gary are getting married. On the day of their wedding, Tracy, having eventually been convinced that Camilla and Gary will not neglect her as a married couple, turns up at the wedding to hear them say "I do". Afterwards, Camilla and Gary tell Tracy that they are adopting her, before they leave on their honeymoon.

Sometime between the end of the original series and the start of Tracy Beaker Returns, Camilla and Gary divorce under unknown circumstances.

At the beginning of the first series ('Tracy Beaker Returns'), Tracy uses Camilla's credit card to publish her autobiography, and is arrested. When Camilla agrees that she will drop the charges on the condition that Tracy pays her back. To save money, Tracy finds employment as a trainee careworker at the Dumping Ground. In her first week, Tracy discovers that Camilla and Mike had kept a letter from her birth mother a secret for years. At this point, there is a continuity error when Tracy exclaims that she has "never seen" her birth mother, in contradiction to flashbacks in series 1 of the original series, and the feature-length movie.

Tracy and Camilla fall out, but as usual, they reconcile. In the series 1 finale, when Tracy announces that she has been offered a job in London and will be leaving, Mike asks Camilla to foster another child. Camilla disagrees, but Johnny overhears a later phone call saying that there is no point fostering again if Tracy is not going to move out, prompting him to decide to be interviewed by Tracy in another scheme to get himself and Tee fostered. When Camilla learns of this, she goes to the Dumping Ground to see Johnny and Tee to tell them that it is not definitive that she will foster again.

In the second season, Camilla fosters Lily Kettle after she falls off the roof of the Dumping Ground during a protest. In the final episode, Camilla travels to New York. Whilst she was initially supposed to go for a few weeks, she announces that she has been given an opportunity to stay for six months, and that she has accepted it.

In the third season, Camilla is still in New York and communicates with Tracy via the internet, eventually returning to England.

Camilla is also seen in 'The Tracy Beaker Survival Files' where she is interviewed by Tracy.

In My Mum Tracy Beaker, she meets and ends up marrying Mary Oliver, Jess' teacher.

Justine Littlewood portrayed by Montanna Thompson, is the rival of Tracy Beaker. She was put into care after her father, Steve Littlewood, couldn't cope after the death of her mother. He visited her occasionally.

The Story of Tracy Beaker Series 1 (2002) - At Stowey House, she occupied Tracy Beaker's old room, this is until Tracy returns, causing an argument between the pair and starting Tracy and Justine's iconic rivalry.

Tracy Beaker Returns Series 3 (2012) - Justine returned in the third series of Tracy Beaker Returns for one episode, where she arrives and asks Mike to give her away at her wedding after her father didn't approve of her fiancé, Charlie. Carmen Howle took a liking to Justine (and Charlie) and thought they'd be the perfect foster parents for her. Mike invites Justine and Charlie round for lunch, or as the kids called it an Engagement Party (much to Tracy's disgust). At lunch Justine continues to talk about herself making Tracy feel jealous, but Justine crosses the line after she tells everyone that when Tracy was a kid, she used to lie a lot about her mum being a big Hollywood star. And that she'd join her in Hollywood to be a star too. Justine then added that she almost believed her, seemingly trying to make out she wasn't being mean but it was obvious to Tracy that she was. During lunch Justine's fiancé Charlie gets a phone call, Rick Barber (who was already suspicious of Charlie) sneaks out the dining room to listen in on Charlie, and it sounds dodgy. Especially when Charlie comes back into the dining room saying his mum has had a fall, which didn't sound like what Rick overheard. Rick then follows Charlie out telling him he knows what he's doing as his parents were con artists too. Charlie threatens Rick and bribes him not to tell Justine by giving him a new laptop. After lunch Justine takes Gina Conway, Carmen, Lily Kettle, Tee Taylor and Sapphire Fox shopping, they come back with loads of clothes and jewellery from Justine and while they were out, Justine told the girls about the time when Tracy dared her to steal Jenny Edwards' clothes while she was in the shower (which later the girls decide to steal Tracy's clothes while she's in the shower, thinking she'd find it funny, which she didn't find amusing in the slightest). Later in the dining room Justine is discussing her wedding day plans to Carmen, showing her pictures of the venue and her wedding dress, and even invites Carmen along to the wedding. Carmen then asks Justine about fostering which freaks Justine out a little but says she'll think about it and talk to Charlie after Carmen said it worked for Cam and Tracy. Tracy overhears this and grows a little jealous but also thinks Justine is just saying she'll foster Carmen to get one over on Tracy. Justine then says that Tracy hasn't changed and that she still thinks the whole world revolves around Tracy Beaker and then starts mocking her book she wrote, which starts a classic Beaker and Littlewood Brawl. Carmen stops them and shouts at Tracy and saying how much she believes that Justine and Charlie are going to foster her. Rick then walks in a decides to tell the truth about Charlie. Rick tells Justine that Charlie is a con man and has loads of other girls on the go and twists things and lies to scam all these girls for their money, Justine refuses to believe her husband to be could be this evil, but agrees to team up with Tracy to find out the truth. So Justine, Tracy, Rick and Cam to team up to set a trap to catch Charlie out. After Charlie is caught out by Justine, with the help of Rick, Cam and Tracy, Justine ends it with Charlie and goes up to make up with her dad. Justine later goes back to the Dumping Ground to tell Mike and Gina what happened and what Charlie was up to, and that she found out Charlie's mum was in on the whole scam as well. Justine then goes to speak to Carmen to apologise that she won't be able to foster Carmen anymore after what's happened. Carmen calmly accepts the decision and reminds Justine what Tracy always tells them, that Dumping Ground Kids can cope with anything. Justine then tells Carmen to never to tell anyone she said that "Tracy Beaker's right". Before Justine leaves, her and Tracy have a heart to heart and reminisce their times in the DG. Tracy then goes on to say that she is a complete failure compared to Justine, but Justine says she doesn't think Tracy is a failure because her job just makes good money, while Tracy's job changes lives, then tells Tracy she's doing OK.
