Episode guide
Out of Control

Snake Bite was the eleventh episode of the second season of Tracy Beaker Returns. It was broadcast at 17:00 on the CBBC Channel on 11/03/2011.


An ex-gang member tracks Elektra down to the Dumping Ground, claiming to have changed. But is she what she seems? Elsewhere, Gina has a dance.


  • First time Gina's husband, Greg, is mentioned (we never see him on-screen). His last mention will be in Dreamland
  • Sapphire says to Elektra that she is doing "that whole gang thing again", referring to when Elektra set up SETA (Secret ElmTree Army) in Elektra.
  • Chris Slater (Frank) later said in an interview that the scene where he dressed up in a pink dress and a wig was his most embarrassing moment filming Tracy Beaker Returns, saying that he did not inform his family that he had cross-dressed and they did not find out until the episode aired on television. He will later cross-dress again in I Have a Dream
  • The rendition of the theme tune from the opening credits is played over the end credits, for some reason.


  • Mike says "Elektra can stay for a bit" when he was meant to say "Kali can stay for a bit".
