Fermanagh’s Adrian Dunbar is among a number of celebrities who will discover their ancestry in a new series of ‘DNA Journey’ later this year.

The fourth series on ITV1 will see four celebrity pairings unearth their past and make life-changing discoveries in South Africa, Ireland and Norwich and St. Helens, in England.

Adrian, best known for playing Superintendent Ted Hastings in hit BBC police drama ‘Line Of Duty’, and for starring in ‘The Crying Game’, will join former ‘Men Behaving Badly’ star Neil Morrissey, who has Irish ancestry.

Also featured on the series are actor Hugh Bonneville, comedians Johnny Vegas, John Bishop and Alex Brooker, along with dancer sisters Oti and Motsi Mabuse.

Kathleen Larkin, executive producer at Voltage TV, said: “This emotional series has some jaw-dropping revelations showing that some of our celebrity pairings are more connected to each other than they ever dreamed of.”

Speaking about the fourth series, Katie Rawcliffe, head of entertainment commissioning at ITV, said: “DNA Journey delves deep into the celebrity’s family history and has unearthed some astonishing revelations over the last few years.

“It’s great to see these famous faces sharing their journey with each other and we’ve got another great line-up with some more fascinating surprises.”

DNA Journey returns on ITV1 and ITVX later this year.
