A few months back, I ran a poll on this blog, where you could vote for your favourite episode from the 10th Series of the UK version of Who Do You Think You Are?, with voting split between the first and second half of the series.
Having collated all of the votes together, for all 10 celebrity episodes, there is a clear winner.
Comedian, Sarah Millican, won the poll with 67% of the votes.
Her voting surged after she retweeted the link to the poll.
In her episode, she aimed to find out about her family’s history in the South Shields area of the UK, and also to see if she could find something her family could be proud of. Well, Sarah, (if you’re reading), you can be proud of your poll glory too.
Here’s a clip from her episode:
Her nearest rival to this glory came from actor Nitin Ganatra who scored 11%, and in third came actor and singer Minnie Driver with 7%.
If you’re the kind of person who likes pies and charts, you’re in luck:
Gary Linekar and Nigel Havers languished in joint last place, both with just one vote each. Nick Hewer managed to muster two votes – a score that would surely get him fired.
Who Do You Think You Are? UK Series 11 for 2014?
Whilst I’ve yet to see confirmation that the 11th series of Who Do You Think You Are? is coming this year, it was reported by the Irish Independent in November, that comedian and writer Brendan O’Carroll – who is most famous for playing Agnes Brown in ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’ - has filmed his episode.
