DNA Journey – 30 March 2021 – 30/3/2021 – Tuesday – ITV

Episode 3

Martin and Roman Kemp take a family road trip of a different kind – one that delves into their family history that spans North London and the North East. Using both DNA and genealogy, they are able to unlock long held secrets of the past and meet close family they never knew existed.

Roman has been brought up hearing, on his Mum’s side, the family folk lore of ancestors living in palaces in Egypt – treating it with a healthy dose of scepticism. However, the truth is even more fantastical…and the journey starts with Night at the British Museum.

Growing up in poverty in Islington, Martin comes face to face with a past that was never spoken about as he hears tales of female heroism about a Nan he never knew and is emotionally reunited with her unmarked grave.

Both celebrities are shocked and emotional to find ancestors leading parallel lives with their own – finding those who dared to dream and those who dared to survive. It’s almost like it’s written in their DNA.

About DNA Journey

Six new celebrities embark on an adventurous and life changing road trip to discover their family history.

Facing a different kind of challenge than they’re used to are sporting legends Freddie Flintoff and Jamie Redknapp, TV personalities Amanda Holden and Alan Carr, and father, son duo, Martin and Roman Kemp. This is the ultimate road trip with their best mate at their side.

Following their maternal and paternal bloodlines, the pairings will be delving into their family history using cutting edge DNA technology and genealogy to uncover the secrets of their past…as well as meeting living relatives they never knew existed.

As Ant and Dec before them, the celebrities will bring with them friendly rivalry and humour as well as the proverbial shoulder to cry on for emotionally charged revelations and dramatic twists, in what promises to be an experience they’ll never forget.

Which ancestor pulled off the biggest robbery of its time in 1840? Whose family rubbed shoulders with Egyptian royalty? What famous face finds their own history uniquely entwined with a relative that lived 100 years before them?

By embracing both past and present family, our duos have the unique experience of understanding what’s in their own DNA, what makes them tick….and that knowledge has the potential to change their lives forever.

This show is broadcast on ITV.
