For the second week running DNA Journey comes top in its slot with a peak of 2.1 million viewers, continuing a trend for the series.
In Episode 2, anarchic comedian Johnny Vegas and funny-man broadcaster Alex Brooker embark on a road trip to find out their family history, using a mix of DNA and genealogy, discovering family secrets, and living cousins they never knew existed.
This one took a huge amount of research by the team, but it paid off. ‘Ordinary’ people but what they achieved was extraordinary and in unexpected ways; in this show the forgotten get a voice.
And as you’ll see in the Show Reel not only am I onscreen in this episode, but I even get to name drop Jack The Ripper to the pair of them.
It was great fun to film.
