Long Lost Family – 12 July 2021 – 12/7/2021 – Monday – ITV

Episode 2

This episode features two stories of people trying to uncover family mysteries.

The first story starts in Derbyshire, and a man hoping to find out why he was abandoned as a baby.

57-year-old John Hacking works in a limestone quarry. He has a daughter and granddaughter, and lives with his partner Helen, who is also adopted and recently found her own birth mother.

John was brought up by his adoptive parents, Derek and Dorothy Hacking. After finding him outside their flat, they moved to a house in rural Derbyshire…


The second story comes from the North East of England, and a daughter looking for the Italian father she’s never met.

53-year-old Debra Spark lives with her husband Chris and their four children in the north-east of England, where she’s spent her whole life.

Debra Spark’s father, Ernesto, was Italian, living in Milan in the 1960s, when he met Debra’s mother Olive, who was working there as a nanny. When Olive became pregnant, she suffered medical complications that meant she had to return to England to spend time in hospital. Olive felt she had been forced apart from Ernesto and remembers being devastated…
