Ben Batamabuze is a character from The Story of Tracy Beaker. He appears in Seasons 1 and 2 of the programme.
Ben is from a rich background. Unlike the other child characters, he does not live at the Dumping Ground, but often hangs around with the Dumping Ground children as his parents are often busy with work and do not spend time with him. Ben is friendly, outgoing and best friends with Tracy.
At first, Ben lies to Tracy, by telling her that he lives on the streets though later Tracy finds out he lives in a big house after Ben injures himself and has to be taken back to his house. They temporarily become enemies but later become friends. He is also good friends with Ryan and Zac and is on good terms with Peter.At the start of Season 3, it was revealed that he left to go to boarding school, but he does appear in a photo halfway through the series. That is the last we hear of him.
