The BBC has announced the line-up for the latest series of Who Do You Think You Are? Which this includes legendary chef Mary Berry, comic legend Billy Connolly and recent BAFTA fellowship winner Julie Walters.

Actress Sheridan Smith will be learning more about her musical family whilst New Tricks star Tamzin Outhwaite focuses on her Italian great-grandfather. Meanwhile presenter Reggie Yates journeys to Ghana to discover more about his father’s side of the family.

Also starring on the show will be Mrs Brown’s Boys star Brendan O’Carroll, George Gently’s Martin Shaw, eccentric actor Brian Blessed and 1960s icon Twiggy.

Additionally, to celebrate the programme’s 100th episode, a one-hour special will accompany the new series, delving into the treasure trove of extraordinary TV moments that have marked the series from Jeremy Paxman’s tears to JK Rowling’s joy.

Maxine Watson, BBC Commissioning Editor, Documentaries, says, “since its launch in 2004, audiences have savoured the often unexpected and emotional journeys into family history. As we celebrate 10 fantastic years in 2014, another 10 famous faces discover more about themselves through their past. The new series promises to continue to deliver BBC One audiences the laughter, tears and surprising revelations of family ancestry as only Who Do You Think You Are? can.”

Who Do You Think You Are? returns later in the summer.
