Davina McCall is delighted that her ITV show Long Lost Family is to return for a fourth series.

The tear-jerking hit ended its current run on Monday, with over 4.5 million viewers tuning in. In an exclusive interview with TV Times, Davina says: “We start filming again in the autumn, which is great news. It’s weekly therapy for me, I just let rip and sob – I love it!”  

Davina – who’ll be back on our screens soon hosting ITV’s forthcoming celebrity dance contest Stepping Out – explains the secret of Long Lost Family’s success: “What’s so wonderful is that the people featured are all so lovely that you sort of fall in love with everyone.”
