What is DNA Journey?

DNA Journey is ITV’s major family history series. Similar to BBC One’s Who Do You Think You Are?, it follows celebrities who want to discover more about their family history, but with a couple of differences – each episode pairs up two celebrities to go on their DNA journey together, and they use DNA tests to start their journey.
