Last night was the final episode of Who Do You Think You Are? and the turn of famous artist Tracey Emin. The programme opens with Tracey discussing how little she knows about her own family history. They start to delve back into Tracey's maternal side and they soon discover some black sheep... Tracey's great grandfather, Henry, was sent to adult prison at just 13 years old.
The controversial artist, Tracey Emin, as perhaps befits her personality, character and extraordinary work, has a somewhat colourful ancestry. WDYTYA? will probably concentrate on her unconventional parentage and upbringing in the Kent seaside resort of Margate. Indeed, she has sometimes been referred to in the press as "Mad Tracey from Margate"!
