Long Lost Family

S1-E6 Carole Davies and Samantha Grygolowicz

Catch Up


The third series of this primetime family reunion show ended a couple of weeks ago, leaving anyone with a shred of empathy an emotional wreck. But if you have the strength (and enough tissues) for more, ITV are showing repeats from the first two series during the day.

Today Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell assist Carole in her search for her father, brother and sister whom she last saw – for the first and only time - 50 years ago. They also help Samantha, who’s of mixed race, to find the Jamaican dad she has not seen since she was five. Brought up in a white family, Samantha hopes that meeting him will help her to make sense of her cultural identity.


The story of Carole Davies, who 50 years ago met her father, brother and sister for the first and last time and has been searching for them ever since. Also featured is Samantha Grygolowicz, a mixed-race woman who grew up in a white family and has not seen her Jamaican father since she was five. Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell present.
