Long Lost Family episode two

Episode two of series 10 contains one of the most shocking reunions in recent history of the show.

We meet Pauline Pedder who was only 15 when she was forced to give up her newborn baby Louise.

Understandably, it’s a decision – made by others on her behalf – that has left her devastated ever since.

Pauline became pregnant when she was just a schoolgirl in Huddersfield.

She’s now 65 and longs to find out what happened to her child, who she’s never forgotten.

Long Lost Family manage to track Louise down 50 years later – and she’s not that far away!

Louise reveals she actually found her birth mother on Facebook, but was too scared to contact her in case she rejected her.

In a jaw-dropping moment, viewers will discover another huge coincidence in the story of their estrangement.

Viewers will also be introduced to trainee nurse Donna Cowell, who works in a Blackpool hospital.

Donna wants to track down her younger brother, who she worries suffered as much as she did when they were both in care.

In another shocking moment, we learn that the siblings have actually been living just around the corner from each other!

In both stories, the missing relatives were found much closer than the searchers could ever have imagined.

Both these stories were filmed before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Long Lost Family continues on ITV1 on Mondays at 9pm.
