Joe Sugg
Season 18 Episode 6/7

YouTube star Joe Sugg uncovers some incredible stories in his family tree, with a little help along the way from big sister and fellow social media influencer Zoe. Very aptly, Joe discovers a great-great-great grandfather who was involved in the earliest days of communication technology - in electrical telegraphs. Pushing further back, he finds seven-times-great grandparents who fled religious persecution in France and a goldsmith who survived the Great Fire of London
