The 15th series of Who Do You Think You Are? returns to BBC1 in England and Northern Ireland at 9pm on June 6th 2018. The first episode will feature actress Michelle Keegan. Here's the synopsis:

Michelle Keegan
Who Do You Think You Are?, Series 15 Episode 1 of 8

Our Girl actress Michelle Keegan uncovers some exceptional women on her family tree. On her mother's side Michelle discovers that her Gibraltarian great-grandmother Leonor had to up sticks when all women and children and the elderly were evacuated from harm's way in Gibraltar to the apparent safety of London during the Second World War, a month before the start of the Blitz.

Further back, Michelle discovers her great-great-grandmother Elizabeth Kirwan living in poverty in Manchester at the start of the 20th century. Michelle unearths a special connection to suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst and her great-great-grandmother's commitment to the cause that put her name on the electoral roll - voting for the very first time in 1918.
