Who Do You Think You Are?

By Alice Westoby

Everyone's favourite family tree inspired programme is back! And after the amazing last series we can't wait for this one...

Who Do You Think You Are is returning to our screens!

Last half of this series saw Danny Dyer discover his royal ancestry in what was arguably the best episode of the show yet! 

Seeing the cheeky cockney find out he was related to William the Conquerer was TV gold.
