She played The Ghost Of Christmas Past in the school play. It is mentioned that her mum and Nan died.

Television Series

Before Tracy was fostered by a couple called Ted and Julie, she was Louise's best friend. However, Tracy never contacted Louise whilst she was away, so when Justine arrived at the Dumping Ground, she became her new best friend. She got jelous though when she came back to the DG.

Throughout The Story of Tracy Beaker

Series 1

When Tracy returned to the Dumping Ground, Louise did not speak to her much, but she was made to act like a bridge between Tracy and Justine, who became arch enemies. Louise did not have many storylines in the first series, but she did have a few, including the time that she was made Child of the Week with Tracy and the time that she, Tracy and Justine attempted to go to a sleepover together. Justine is sometimes horrible to Louise on many occasions, including when she is made to help paint Justine's room and is made to pay to watch Justine's new TV. In the series finale, Louise allows Tracy to paint her portrait on the life sized mural of the DG kids next to her and she says a happy goodbye to Tracy when she is fostered by Cam Lawson.
