Series 14 – Emma Willis
TV presenter Emma Willis grew up in Birmingham with her mum and dad and 2 sisters. “There were always family members round the corner, in the garden, down the street. It was that typical, old fashioned, working class, everybody mucks in, everybody helps raise you.”
Emma’s Nan Edna (her father’s late mum) did some work on the family tree a long time ago, but Emma never knew what she discovered. Her grandparents on both sides are as far back as Emma’s knowledge goes.
Now she’s reached a point in her life where she wants to know more.”I don’t know what’s about to unfold and I don’t know what’s about to happen. Hopefully it’s a positive outcome. I mean, we all want to have a nice story, right?” Emma heads home to Birmingham by train to see her parents.
