Comedian Jack Whitehall and father on Who Do You Think You Are?

The award-winning BBC show Who Do You Think You Are? is back on the telly, and next week’s show (Monday 5 August, 9pm BBC One) will feature comedian Jack Whitehall as he traces his own family tree.

If you tune in you may recognise some familiar scenes and a very special chapel, as part of the episode was filmed at our Northampton hospital!

We can’t give much away ahead of the broadcast, but Jack and his father Michael spent an afternoon with us earlier this year. They met a local historian who had information about one of their ancestors - a woman who was in our care not long after the hospital first opened.

Thank you to our Chaplaincy team and Simon Brown, Librarian, for their help in the filming and for keeping the episode secret!
