DNA Journey "Joel Dommett and Tom Allen" 20 October 2022: Series 4 Episode 3 on ITV 11

Old friends and now hugely successful comedians, Joel Dommett and Tom Allen are delving into their family history, as they embark on a road-trip around the UK. Through detailed genealogy and cutting-edge DNA, they’ll learn of jaw dropping long lost cousins and heroic family histories.

From London to Edinburgh to Ireland, this trip reveals what makes the pair the way they are. Joel has always felt rootless and is desperate to belong somewhere, whilst after losing his beloved father, Tom hopes learning about his past will cement his dad’s presence. This duo’s journey is full of emotion, a deep genuine friendship and of course, many laughs.

Joel learns of an ancestor who not once, but twice, produced inventions that saved thousands, if not tens of thousands of lives – and it could be said helped end the First World War. Heading north, rootless Joel discovers where his DNA says he truly belongs, and it’s a big surprise.

Plummy Tom has always felt like a fish out of water in his south London family – but an Irish ancestor reveals it may be his DNA is to blame. He discovers the emotional story of his great grandparents, from a criminal past to a successful career on the stage and the tragic turn that meant they had to give up their baby girl, Tom’s beloved grandmother, for adoption. And everyone gets the shock of their lives when it’s revealed Tom is related to true TV Royalty.



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.
