It has just been announced that the new series of Who Do You Think You Are? is to air sometime next month. The list of celebrities who are climbing their family trees have been revealed.
- Alex Kingston – actress

- Gregg Wallace – tv presenter
- Hugh Dennis – comedian & actor
- William Roache – actor
- Celia Imrie – actress

The press release promises that the series will cover the Crimean War, WW1, WW2, illegitimacy, poverty, misfortune, formidable matriarchs, aristocracy, Jamaican genealogy, estrangement and abandonment. Apart from the Jamaican connection they could have had me and my genealogy on the programme and saved themselves a lot of trouble !!
Always good to have a new series of WDYTYA? to look forward to.
