Celia Pacquola, Malcolm Turnbull, Denise Drysdale, Jeff Fatt (The Wigglesand Uncle Jack Charles join the cast of the much-loved genealogy series, which takes well-known personalities on a revealing journey into their past, sharing their emotion and surprise as they uncover stories at the heart of their family history. The 12th season also features Australian television stars Grant Denyer, Chris Bath and Natalie Bassingthwaighte.

This season, one participant uncovers a mysterious family fortune, while another learns the identity of his father, who he’s never known. One discovers his ancestors managed to flourish in Australia despite immense discrimination as a result of the White Australia Policy, and a famous performer lights set off to discover where their love of the arts originated.

Malcom Turnbull said:

“It’s a very human thing to want to have an understanding of both where we’ve come from and what comes next. We can’t erase the history, but what we can do is understand it, respect it and tell the truth about it.”

Celia Pacquola said:

“I have come away with something very important to me which is taking a few more steps down my own path towards reconciling my personal history in this country.”

Uncle Jack Charles said:

“I haven’t found who my father is, and that is part of the missing jigsaw, the puzzle, that doesn’t make me complete within myself.”

Jeff Fatt said:

“Learning about my ancestors has given me much more of an appreciation for my parents. It’s also given me a desire to have known more when they were alive.”

Marshall Heald, Director of Television and Online Content said:

Who Do You Think You Are? is produced by Warner Bros. International Television Production Australia for SBS.

The series premieres at 7:30pm Tuesday 8 June on SBS and SBS On Demand. Episodes continue weekly.

  1. Why do we get the same celebrities but as hosts and participants on all these shows and for that matter why the same old shows returning, surely we could give someone else a go, it gets very boring.
