DNA Journey "Larry Lamb and Alison Steadman" 4 November 2022: Series 4 Episode 4 on ITV 11

Gavin and Stacey favourites, actors Larry Lamb and Alison Steadman, embark on a road trip to find out their family history using a mix of DNA and genealogy, meeting living family members they never knew existed, along the way.

One of the most emotional DNA Journeys yet filmed, Alison comes to learn, through production and subsequent filming that her father George Percy was adopted. Neither her nor the family had any idea. Propelled to know as much as she can and supported by her great friend, Larry they go on a journey that takes them to the Isle of Man, as Alison gets to know the story behind the Granny she never knew.

For Larry, a series of delightful coincidence occur. There’s the entertaining bombshell that he’s related to one of the world’s first famous movie stars, a Canadian actress called Florence Lawrence. A pure coincidence, but Canada is the place where Larry started his acting career himself. He also finds out where his Jewish roots come from, all the way from Lithuania which just happens to be where his best mate hails from. Larry is blown away by the strange and wonderful connections.

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.
