Hi folks,

Tonight's episode of Who Do You Think You Are? saw former model and actress Jerry Hall explore her roots in an episode that took her all the way from Oldham back to her native Texas. As ever, post your comments below!

Best,
Jon

A true story of the Wild West and the pioneers.

The only time previously I'd seen Jerry Hall was when she was on Strictly Coming Dancing and I didn't really take to her then - she came across as a typical brash Texan. This time I still found her annoying at times but overall I warmed to her. I felt real empathy for her when she said she wished her mother had known about her ancestors - that's something I can relate to only too well.

I thought it was a good episode. Still the irritating 'experts' popping up with the relevant documents and no explaination as to how they'd come by them but it was a fascinating tale and one so very different from any of the others in this series so far.

I thought it wasn't the greatest from a research point of view, although you knew where the information came from. I will however say I was pleased, that unlike another show, they left Jerry's shock that her ancestors had slaves in the programme and her view on that and also that the Pioneers took land that was Indian land.
