PREVIEW: Long Lost Family, ITV

Nicky Campbell and Davina McCall find people that previously couldn't be traced and answer questions that have haunted entire lives.



Across 10 brand new episodes, the team takes on some astonishing searches. From an international and premiership footballer looking for his birth mother after recovering from a brain tumour, to a man needing the truth about why he was left as a three-month-old baby in a pram on the street.


Episode 1 features two stories of children searching for their birth mothers after life-changing events. The first story is on behalf of a former premiership footballer who, after suffering a huge health scare, is compelled to find his birth mother.


The second search is on behalf of a woman who was hit with emotion on her wedding day, thinking about her missing birth mother.


Lisa Phillips has decided the time is right to search for her birth mother. She’s had unanswered questions ever since she was told she was adopted at the age of seven, but it was on her wedding day in 1992 that it really hit home that there was one person absent.


Long Lost Family returns Monday 5th July at 9pm on ITV.
