Who Do You Think You Are? – Pixie Lott

We are looking forward to watching the Pixie Lott episode of the UK series 18 of Who Do You Think You Are? Due to be broadcast on Tuesday 9th November on BBC One at 9pm it looks like it will be another very interesting one.

Singer-songwriter and talent-show judge Pixie Lott hopes to confirm the family story that she has Italian ancestry from Verona but instead discovers ancestors battling poverty and hardship in London.  On her dad’s side, Pixie learns of her great grandfather’s harrowing and surprising experience in the First World War.  And, wondering if she has any musical genes, Pixie is delighted to discover three generations of military musicians whose legacy gives Pixie an opportunity to sing with the band of the Household Cavalry.
