Singer and former X Factor judge Cheryl takes part in the popular genealogy documentary, in which famous faces trace their family trees. The one-time Girls Aloud member knows little about her heritage, beyond her sense as a true Geordie, so she sets out to trace her roots in the North East of England. On her father's side she discovers a seafaring ancestor and a family tragedy. On her mother's side, she learns the story of her long-forgotten great-grandfather, a soldier in the First World War who fought in one of the most famous battles on the Western Front.
