Jacqueline Wilson has responded with delight to Stormzy sampling the Tracy Beaker theme tune on his track “Superheroes”.

At the end of the song, Big Mike can be heard singing Keisha White’s “Someday”, which is best known for being the theme of the popular children’s TV show.

“What a treat to hear the Tracy Beaker theme tune popping up on @stormzy song. Love it!” wrote the author of the original books on Twitter.

Stormzy then responded with: “Ayeeeee JACQUELINE WILSON ya na!!! Real ones know!! what a legend!!”

Tracy Beaker ran from 2002 to 2005 and starred Dani Harmer as the eponymous young rebel living in a care home.

Stormzy’s song “Superheroes” features on his new album Heavy is the Head, which was released on Friday 13 December.

It was awarded four stars by The Independent’s critic Roisin O’Connor, who wrote: "Not only is it a drastic step up from his impressive debut, but it shows an artist keen to test himself emotionally, as well as artistically."
