Stars from the world of music, comedy, sport, television and film join in the 15th series of the Bafta-award winning genealogy show Who Do You Think You Are? from Wall To Wall (a Warner Bros Television Production UK Ltd company) when it returns to BBC One this summer.
Multi-award winning actor Olivia Colman, musician, DJ, fashion designer and British icon Boy George, Strictly Come Dancing’s Head Judge Shirley Ballas, comedian and Not Going Out actor Lee Mack, presenter and former JLS member Marvin Humes, barrister and television personality Robert ‘Judge’ Rinder, Our Girl star Michelle Keegan and gold medal winning Paralympian Jonnie Peacock all discover their families’ pasts in this year’s series.

Series fifteen reveals shocking discoveries, laughter and tears along the way, as our eight celebrities travel around the world to unearth the secrets of their ancestors. Michelle Keegan uncovers some exceptional women on her family tree as she unearths a special connection to suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst. Olivia Colman’s journey is one of equal contrasts as she voyages from her family home in Norfolk to India, discovering that her ancestry is more diverse than she had originally thought. While Lee Mack’s investigation brings to light a comedy connection to his great-grandfather who performed on the frontline during WW1. From adultery to asylums, illicit drinking dens to revolutions, our celebrities travel round the world, from Gibraltar to Genoa, India, Jamaica, South Africa and Latvia, as they solve the mysteries in their family trees.

The series will air on BBC One over the summer with Michelle Keegan’s episode launching the series as part of the Hear Her season on the BBC which marks the centenary of women getting the vote.

The BBC is set to showcase women’s voices in a dedicated season of content across TV, radio and online to mark 100 years since suffrage and the centenary anniversary of women being able to vote in the UK.

Executive Producer for Wall to Wall, Colette Flight, says: “Britain’s best loved stars are once again delving into their family trees, uncovering hidden secrets and solving mysteries. The stories they unearth are revelatory, often unexpectedly humorous but always affecting.”

BBC Commissioning Editor Fatima Salaria says: “The enduring appeal of Who Do You Think You Are? is set to continue as BBC One broadcasts a huge host of names in series 15 including Olivia Colman, Boy George, Marvin Humes and Judge Rinder, which are guaranteed to move and entertain audiences. We’re particularly honoured to launch the series with Michelle Keegan’s episode which uncovers her special connection to Emmeline Pankhurst, as part of the BBC’s Hear Her season. This is must see TV at its best.”

Series 15 was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director, BBC Content and Tom McDonald, BBC Head of Commissioning, Natural History and Specialist Factual. The Commissioning Editor is Fatima Salaria.

STRICTLY Come Dancing chiefs are ready to “break the bank” to sign up Michelle Keegan for this year’s show.

They have a hit-list of celebrities they want to see strutting their stuff on the dance floor this autumn. And former Coronation Street actress Michelle, 30, is a top target. They are so determined to get her that insiders say they are prepared to spend more than ever. A source for the show said: “Everyone knows that having Michelle Keegan out on the Strictly dance floor would be ratings gold. She has a huge and loyal fanbase, but more importantly to bosses they know her supporters are young. That’s a demographic that they are desperate to attract to the show and something they are willing to break the bank for. And, of course, all the male professional dancers would be desperate to be paired with Michelle. Everyone behind the scenes thinks she would set the dance floor alight. It’s now a matter of convincing her to sign up.”

But Strictly chiefs could face a tough battle because Michelle has previously warned she couldn’t cope with the stress of dancing live in front of the nation every Saturday night. Her husband Mark Wright, 31, competed on the show in 2014 and made it all the way to the final with Karen Clifton, right. That gave Michelle a taste of what it’s like to compete for the famous glitterball trophy. Asked if she would be following in his footsteps after his stint on the show, she said: “It was so horrible watching Mark! Mark’s a more confident person than me. I remember seeing how nervous he was and thinking, ‘If he’s like that, I just couldn’t do it’.” But the Our Girl star also says she can’t “ever rule the show out”, giving bosses a chance at persuading her to sign up. Our source added: “Michelle might have an issue with nerves but we hope she’ll be able to put them to one side and enjoy all the glitz and glamour Strictly offers.”

Michelle Keegan is already a star in the UK, but it appears she’s breaking the showbiz realm Stateside too.

Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright – who got hitched in 2015 – have been spending their time in Los Angeles after Mark landed himself the opportunity of a lifetime. The former TOWIE cast member moved to Hollywood in 2017 after becoming a TV presenter on entertainment programme Extra. It is believed the genetically-blessed couple could make their move permanent after they were recently spotted house-hunting in the Hollywood Hills.

The 30-year-old gave the game away that she too was set to make it big in America like her hubby in a post shared to Michelle Keegan’s Instagram. Dressed in a pair of checked trousers, a knit top and sunglasses Michelle beamed away from the camera. Michelle fuelled speculation and captioned the image: “What an exciting 1st day!” before adding the video camera and action board emojis.
Michelle’s first big acting gig was on Coronation Street back in 2008. The bombshell beat around 900 people for the part of Tina McIntyre, who was killed off in 2014. Since leaving the role Michelle’s career has only gone from strength to strength. Michelle has starred in Our Girl, Plebs and ITV drama series Tina and Bobby, based on the relationship of footballer Bobby Moore and his wife Tina Dean.

She hasn’t made a secret of her desire to transition to more Hollywood roles and now has an agent based in LA. “I’ve been spending some time in Los Angeles with Mark and it’s so nice to have some time together,” she admitted to Now Magazine. “My US agent is in LA too, so I’ve had a few meetings set up over there.”

Michelle Keegan has revealed she is looking for work in Hollywood so that she can be closer to husband Mark Wright.

The Our Girl actress jetted off to LA with her other half after Christmas and is keen to find her next job in the US, after years spent on British television.

The duo spent eight months apart last year while Keegan filmed the BBC drama, so now the 30-year-old soap actress is looking for acting work in La La Land.

Speaking to Now magazine, she said: “I’ve been spending some time in Los Angeles with Mark and it’s so nice to have some time together.

“My US agent is in LA too, so I’ve had a few meetings set up over there.”

Wright recently hinted that Keegan could be moving to LA full time in an interview.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Wright suggested Keegan might be heading to America permanently, as Hollywood is “every actress’s dream”.

He said: “We’ll see what happens. I think if you’re an actress you want to come to Hollywood, right?

Wright added that the couple are “enjoying the sunshine” and just “see how we go”.

The actress plays army medic Georgie Lane on the war-based series, and t’s been quit the series for the character.
Taking to Instagram following the tense final episode of series two, Michelle confessed filming had been one of the “most incredible experiences of her life”. Praising her “amazing” cast, Michelle admitted she felt “emotional” as she confirmed that the show would be back and so would she.
She wrote alongside a snap of her in uniform: “Well that’s an official wrap. One of the most incredible experiences of my life. Thank you so much for your amazing support I feel so emotional right now. Thank you also to the amazing people who I was lucky enough to work with on this special project. #OurGirl2016 @bbcone.” The actress posted a series of snaps in the lead up to the final of her time away filming in Kenya. At the end of last night’s episode, Corporal Georgie headed off to Syria for her next army tour, and it has now been confirmed that another series is on the way.

BBC One confirmed the news on Twitter after the end of last night’s big episode, which saw Georgie in danger once again at the hands of terrorist Abu. The account posted: “We’re delighted to announce tha #OurGirl will return to @BBCOne for a third series, starring @michkeegan as Georgie Lane.” Michelle’s character had spent the whole series choosing between Luke Pasqualino’s character Elvis and Jamie (Royce Pierrson). And the final episode left viewers disappointed, as the army girl chose to marry neither and go it alone. It finished with a voiceover from Michelle saying: “Husbands? They’re overrated. I’ve got something much more important. I have a job to do.”

Michelle Keegan has been a busy bee of late and now she’s added another project to her line-up of TV work – but this one is TOTALLY different to what we’re used to seeing Keegs in!

The actress – who is currently winning ace reviews for her performance in BBC drama Our Girl – has signed up for a one-off revival show of The Crystal Maze. As in the gloriously bonkers 1990s game show which saw contestants face challenges in a series of themed zones to collect crystals and win prizes.

This revival is all for a good cause though. Michelle, 29, will play the game alongside former footballer Rio Ferdinand, comedian Josh Widdicombe, DJ Sara Cox and Paralympic champion Jonnie Peacock in aid of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer fundraiser.

The Office star Stephen Merchant will present the show, which is set to be broadcast next month.

It looks like the celebs filmed the special episode on Thursday though as Michelle hinted that she’d had a ball by retweeting a photo from the set…

Fans are pretty excited to see Keegs take on the challenge and many are hoping she managed to beat the clock in each zone.

‘Hope you didn’t get locked in Michelle,’ one Twitter user commented.

Another posted: ‘Michelle Keegan is enough of a reason to watch The Crystal Maze special later in the year’

Michelle hasn’t spoken about her latest project as of yet but we can’t wait to see how she gets on!
It’s certainly something VERY different for the actress, who has been racking up some impressive performances ever since she left Coronation Street in 2014.

After appearing in drama Ordinary Lies last year, 2016 has been very busy for Michelle and she’s been wowing viewers with her portrayal of army medic Georgie Lane in Our Girl.

The TV star has also been filming upcoming ITV series Tina And Bobby and even proved she’s got comedy chops earlier this year with roles in Plebs and Drunk History.

Who’d have thought we’d next be seeing her running around a maze trying to earn crystals, eh?

The 29-year-old former Corrie star has come onto the radar of movie bosses in South Africa, where the show was filmed.

Hollywood directors are eyeing up lady-of-the-moment Michelle Keegan, reports the Sunday People. It’s thanks to her storming performance in upcoming BBC drama Our Girl 2. Michelle, 29, has come on to the radar of movie bosses out in South Africa, where the show was filmed.

Her stunt co-ordinator on the series, which sees the actress takes on the role of army medic Georgie Lane, says her name has been buzzing around sets in Cape Town where they have been making Dark Tower with Idris Elba and Matthew McConnaughy and 24 Hours to Live with Ethan Hawke. Paul Pieterse said : “The Hollywood interest has all come out of her performance in Our Girl 2. She’s very good. Cape Town is a hub of new movies and people come here from the US to scour for new talent. There’s a lot of big money being spent here. Michelle has now shown her diversity in Our Girl 2. Can her looks and body match up to Hollywood’s women? Absolutely yes. Michelle is a belter, no two ways about that, and pictures don’t do her credit. She’s also very easy to work with, no a prima donna at all.”

It’s a busy time for former Coronation Street actress Michelle – who is married to former TOWIE star Mark Wright. After finishing filming Our Girl 2 she went straight into production for Tina and Bobby – in which she plays the first wife of famed footballer Bobby Moore. And Pieterse thinks the roles will continue to flood in. He told how he rates Michelle even higher than Charlize Theron – who he worked with on a movie. “I did The Last Face with Charlize Theron and I don’t rate her the same way I rate Michelle Keegan,” he said. “I think Charlize was very lucky, in the right place at the right time, and the same thing will apply to Michelle. If she gets the right part she’s going all the way.” Referring to an upcoming scene in Our Girl 2 in which Michelle is trapped in a tiny cage – Paul says she played the part with such conviction that she made him cry. And how he’s singing her praises to all the movie bosses he meets. “Emotion is one of the things that can make an actress and Michelle can switch it on and off and make us believe, and that’s what it’s about. I watched her at work for months and she was awesome. I’m working on 24 Hours to Live at the moment and I’ve told producers how I sobbed watching Michelle in her agonising scenes on Our Girl and how moved I was. These guys are fascinated to know about Michelle. I can tell you she’s a really big talent and a lot of people in this town are talking about her. We have 15 big foreign movies being made here over the past few months – big stars like Sean Penn, Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron have all been here. Michelle’s going to make it big time, I am certain of it. Michelle for Hollywood, absolutely. No doubt she can make it there, the right part and she’s away. I am working with top Hollywood stars and Michelle’s of that calibre. I know good when I see it.”

Michelle is set to star in yet another much anticipated series, chronicling the life of legendary England captain Bobby Moore, in which she will play the sportsman’s wife, Tina.
ITV confirmed she will feature opposite 26-year-old actor Lorne MacFadyen – who is best to known to viewers from Grantchester – in a new drama series to be filmed in Manchester this summer.

After England won the World Cup in July 1966, the captain and his wife were catapulted to national fame and became the country’s original golden couple.
Tina And Bobby relates the story of the England and West Ham legend’s life with his childhood sweetheart from their humble beginnings to the heights of stardom.

Mark Wright’s wife will be joined on set by Holby City and Emmerdale’s Patsy Kensit, who will play Tina’s mother Betty and David Bamber, who takes on the role of England Manager Alf Ramsey.
The three episode drama is based on Tina’s memoir, Bobby Moore: By The Person Who Knew Him Best.

Growing up in Essex, Tina first met Bobby aged just 15 when he was 17 and four years later the couple married in June 1962.
Former West Ham and Manchester United full back Noel Cantwell was best man and other guests included football manager Malcolm Allison and the entire West Ham team.
In 1965 the footballing star was diagnosed with testicular cancer and his captaincy of the national side a mere year before the World Cup hung in the balance.

But, against all the odds, he fought his way back to fitness and led the England team to their first and only World Cup triumph.
ITV Studios executive producer, Kieran Roberts, said: ‘Most people will know the story of Bobby Moore’s achievements as captain of club and country – the only Englishman ever to lift the football World Cup.
‘Far fewer will know the story of his life with Tina – a love story every bit as dramatic and epic as Bobby’s exploits on the pitch.
‘We are delighted to be dramatising Tina and Bobby’s amazing story for ITV and, in Michelle and Lorne, we think we have the perfect casting of the golden couple and we are thrilled.’

If you’ve been missing Miss Keegan’s face gracing your TV screens since her departure from Coronation Street back in May, have no fear, the wait will soon be over! News broke this week about the new BBC One drama series, Ordinary Lies, which is set to air in 2015. Ordinary Lies is a six part series from the creative minds behind Happy Valley and Last Tango in Halifax, RED Production Company, and Shameless director Danny Brocklehurst. Filming for the show will start this week.

Michelle took to her HELLO! blog to share her excitement and give a little insight about what the project is all about. “It’s set in the offices of a motor showroom, and is about the little white lies that people tell and how they can spiral out of control. The writing is amazing (the series is written by Emmy and BAFTA winner Danny Brocklehurst) and there’s a fantastic cast including Mackenzie Crook, Max Beesley, Jason Manford and Sally Linsday. My character is called Tracey, but I can’t tell you anything else about her just yet, don’t want to give anything away! I’m honoured to be working with such a talented group of actors and can’t wait to start filming… Oh and another great thing about this job is that it’s being filmed in my home town of Manchester! Yep, it’s back up the M6 for me for a while…!”

According to Digital Spy, Michelle’s character Tracey works at the motor showroom as a receptionist, and is a wannabe WAG who dreams of a life of luxury. What do you think of Michelle’s new gig? 2015 can’t come soon enough!
