New series of WDYTYA gets off to a strong start

Patsy Kensit's "Who Do You Think You Are" journey into her ancestry last Wednesday got the series off to a strong start with a viewing figure of 6.9 million, and a 30% share of the audience, easily wiping the floor with ITV's Trinny and Susannah Undress the Nation at 3.6 million (16%) and Channel 4's Big Brother at 2.7 million (12%) [Source: Media Guardian].

The emotional programme revealed that Patsy's grandfather, like her father, had a criminal background, but provided her with a more positive discovery of an earlier ancestor's involvement with the Church.

Next week - it's Boris! A preview clip from the next edition, postponed from the last run due to Boris's campaign to become London mayor, can be seen online at http://www.bbc.co.uk/whodoyouthinkyouare/new-stories/boris-johnson/index.shtml
