Review

Bradlee Allen last saw his father more than ten years ago when, at the age of 14, he declared he wanted nothing to do with him. It was a difficult period in the youngster’s life as he was struggling to cope with the prejudice he faced as a mixed-race child in a predominantly white neighbourhood. On the eve of his wedding, Bradlee has decided he wants to make amends.

By contrast, Bridget Eyles discovered she was adopted at the age of 11 and has longed to find her birth mother ever since. This was first shown in 2012 but these reunions are just as emotionally draining the second time around.

Summary

Groom-to-be Bradlee Allen from south-east London hopes to track down his father before his wedding day in one week's time. The pair last met 10 years ago, when the estranged dad was turned away by his then 14-year-old son during a difficult period in the youngster's life. Bridget Eyles from Saffron Walden in Essex also asks for help in finding her birth mother after discovering at the age of 11 that she was adopted. Presented by Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell.
