Nicky Campbell and Davina McCall reunited for new Long Lost Family series

Nicky Campbell and Davina McCall have returned for the third series of ITV’s Long Lost Family series.

Nicky Campbell and Davina McCall have returned for the third of ITV’s ‘Long Lost Family’ series, sponsored by Genes Reunited.

Long Lost Family - ITV

Often reuniting adopted children with their biological parents, the series is an immensely personal rollercoaster ride of emotions – sometimes making uncomfortable viewing.

The series, which is genealogy-lite (often only making passing reference to research techniques), is hosted by two Who Do You Think You Are? veterans – with Nicky’s episode detailing his own adoption.

Episode One follows the stories of mother Sue and daughter Kerry, and Alan and his search for his mother Pat.

As ever with this series, tissues required.
