Joe Sugg is next in the UK series 18 of Who Do You Think You Are?

Episode 6 of Who Do You Think You Are? will be Joe Sugg's family research and will be on Tuesday 23rd November 2021, BBC One 9 pm.


YouTuber and actor Joe Sugg uncovers some incredible stories in his family tree, with a little help along the way from fellow social media star and big sister, Zoe.  Joe, very aptly, discovers a great-great-great grandfather who was involved in the earliest days of communication technology – in electrical telegraphs. Pushing further back, he finds seven-times-great grandparents who fled religious persecution in France and a goldsmith who survived the Great Fire of London.


WARNING: SPOLIER ALERT! If you don't mind knowing what is going to be in the programme before you watch it then you can read all about it here: Joe Sugg – Who Do You Think You Are? Otherwise there are six days to go before its on your TV!


Look out for the broadcast which will be on BBC One Tuesday 23 November 2021 at 9 pm.
