Long Lost Family
real LIFE / 9.00pm / ITV
It might be in its seventh series now, but this show is still every bit as heartbreaking and heartwarming as it was in its very first year. In tonight’s episode, Davina Mccall and Nicky Campbell follow two stories of mothers and sons who became separated. Steve Belshaw is looking for his birth mother, Frances Unsworth, who, after tragedy struck, put him up for adoption through an advert in the local paper. Meanwhile, Corine Aspland is desperate for her son Mark to understand why she had to put him up for adoption 24 hours after he was born. Will either of these stories have a fairy-tale ending?
