Who Do You Think You Are? Live 2015 in pictures – plus confirmation on the WDYTYA? Live 2016 show dates.

Else explains that the plans changed over the weekend – presumably based on the success of the show rather than a guesstimate of its success, given that it had also moved home.
UPDATE: The Who Do You Think You Are? Live team have also now confirmed the dates:
