Vanessa was surprised to learn her potential celebrity relative was Kerry Katona.

She said: "I knew who she was and was a fan of Atomic Kitten when I was younger.

"I was really interested to know what she was like in person, and she was lovely."

Vanessa applied for the show after seeing an advert on a family genealogy website Facebook group.

She said: "I was a bit bored during lockdown and started to look up my family history.

"I saw the advert for Fame In The Family and thought it would be a good laugh.

"I already knew a little as my grandmother did my family tree for me when I was 13."

The show airs at 5.30pm on Friday.
