Chat show King Michael Parkinson has been dropped from BBC1 show Who Do You Think You Are? as his family history is too boring.

Parky was asked to appear in the latest series, now showing on Wednesdays, but he was ditched when researchers failed to find anybody heroic or scandalous among his humble working class Yorkshire ancestors.

He told the Radio Times: “I’m addicted to Who Do You Think You Are? It’s the fascination we all have for our roots – the intriguing story of our lives.”

He also said he was especially disappointed because he was so keen to be in the programme – the only reality show he has dreamed of taking part in.

Chris Moyles will be looking into his family history this week. Following this, despite any prior reservations, we can trust it to be an interesting one.
