This Summer sees the ever popular BBC show Who Do You Think You Are return to our screens with a stellar lineup of British and Irish celebrities. Launched in 2004, the show will hit its 100th episode during the upcoming series.
Scottish comedian Billy Connolly and Mrs. Brown’s Boys star Brendan O’Carroll will feature this year in what promises to be a season that delivers a roller coaster of emotions. We are all accustomed to the highs and lows of researching our own family history and this year WDYTYA UK promises tears, humor and unexpected revelations.
Billy Connolly, who for many epitomizes the charm and wit associated with the Scottish, may find he has more diversity in his past than he expected.
Mary Berry of the Great British Bake Off fame delves into her family’s history, Brian Blessed discovers a past worthy of a Dickens novel, Tazmin Outhwaite explores the rags to riches story in her family tree, and Brendan O’Carroll faces a murder mystery in his.
Also featured this season are actresses Sheridan Smith and Julie Walters, DJ Reggie Yates, Judge John Deed star Martin Shaw, and Model Twiggy.
