Season 9

Fridays from 4 October at 8.30pm Channel 017

Long Lost Family follows the stories of people who have, for one reason or another, experienced long-term separation from members of their family and are seeking to be reunited with them. After a lifetime of separation, birth parents will reconnect with their biological families and children will meet the parents who put them up for adoption years ago. Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell return and with the help of trained intermediaries, DNA experts and investigators from all over the world, they find people that previously couldn’t be traced and answer questions that have haunted entire lives. 

The series will feature more extraordinary stories with unexpected twists and turns, including the first time the team have taken on a search for someone in the public eye, as singer KT Tunstall searches for her birth father and uncovers many surprises along the way. It also features Long Lost Family’s oldest ever searcher at the age of 83, who is desperate to find her daughter before it’s too late. New searches will take the team to locations including Chicago, Brisbane, Belfast, and Canada. And for the first time, the series will feature a missing person story without a resolution, by making an emotional appeal. The series kicks off by dedicating a full episode to an incredible story that previously hit the headlines, following one woman’s search into her past which reveals layers of family that she never knew existed.
