The 2022 Long Lost Family run continues with a 12th series. Presented by Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell, it tells incredible stories of people desperate to find missing family, unravels mysteries that no one else has been able to solve and answers questions that have haunted entire lives.
The first episode highlights the worst fear of many people searching for relatives - that they may have left it too late.
In 2017, 68-year-old Jacinta Hickey contacted Long Lost Family looking for her younger brother Paul. Tragically, while we were still working on her case, Jacinta died suddenly. Her daughter Claire has now taken up the search with the help of Jacinta’s younger sister Sandra. Can they fulfil Jacinta’s dying wish - to reunite Paul with his birth family?
Meanwhile, 64-year-old Judy Kenyon believes time maybe running out to find her birth mother, Gina. Judy has discovered that her mother gave birth to her when she was only 19 and called her Jane. After more than 20 years searching, Judy has reached a dead end and knows that Gina would be in her 80s, if she’s still alive.
But she’s also looking for her sister, her namesake Jane, and Long Lost Family has a delightful surprise in store for Judy.
Long Lost Family returns Monday 13th June at 9pm on ITV.
