What is there to know about Amanda Redman’s family?

Amanda took part in the second series of the BBC genealogy show Who Do You Think You Are and so has divulged quite a bit about her upbringing. She was born in Brighton in 1957 to parents Ronald and Joan, but her father sadly died when she was a teenager.

After digging into her mother’s side of the family, Amanda learnt that she had an uncle that she had never met. Her mother Joan had a half-brother named Cyril, who had been born illegitimately before her grandmother Agnes had wed.
