Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell return helping to reunite relatives after years of separation. Tonight’s episode sees a pair of brothers attempting to track down their father and a daughter desperate to reunite with her mother.
David and Paul are two brothers from Liverpool searching for their father who they last saw more than 30 years ago. Their father Dave once worked in the mining industry and their family moved to South Africa when the boys were younger as there were more job opportunities out there for younger men. However, when the country became embroiled in political unrest, Dave and his wife decided to return to Liverpool. Dave later separated from his wife and moved back to South Africa on his own, and since then the boys have hardly heard from him.
Long Lost Family traces Dave to a mining area northwest of Johannesburg where he works for a platinum mine. Nicky travels to South Africa to discover why he has not been a part of his boys’ lives. Nicky learns that David has also been trying to contact his sons, but found it impossible as they changed their surnames when their mother remarried. So after contacting both parties, Long Last Family sets the stage for another tearful reunion.
Also this week, single mother Julia Evans is attempting to track down the mother who had disappeared when she was a baby. Whenever Julia had asked her strict Catholic father about her mother she had simply been told that her mother was a sinner. Unfortunately, Julia’s search is one that has a few bad moments but there is ultimately some light at the end of the tunnel when she is able to be reunited with some new family members.
Long Lost Family continues tonight on ITV at 9pm
