Episode guide
Anarchy in the DG

"Secrets" was the 7th episode of Series 1 in Tracy Beaker Returns and the 7th episode overall. It aired on February 12, 2010.


After fixing Jeff, Tracy sees a box with stolen goods in Sapphire's bedroom and believes she has been shoplifting. Elsewhere, Liam and Frank come across Gus's collection of notebooks and see that he's written something that will land them in trouble.


  • First time we see someone demonstrate bin diving for burgers.
  • The scene where Harry is riding his tricycle, only to see Tee and Carmen blocking his path is a reference to the film version of The Shining, where Danny rides on his tricycle in the halls of the hotel, only to have the ghosts of the two girls block his path.
  • From this episode onward, Sapphire's door has a "No Entry" sign fixed on it.
  • The track played towards the end, during the scene when Ferris is arrested, is 'Distractions', a 2002 track by British music duo Zero 7. The track features guest vocals from Sia Furler, who is perhaps best known for hit singles 'Chandelier' and 'Elastic Heart'.
