Fostering & Me with Lorraine Pascale

Documentary. TV chef, best-selling author and ex-model Lorraine Pascale looks back at her childhood and tracks down the foster carers who looked after her as a child.

To the outside world Lorraine Pascale is the successful TV chef, best-selling author and ex-model, but there is another side to her story. Given up at birth, adopted at 18-months-old and then fostered aged eight when her family broke down, she really has been through the system.

Lorraine looks back at her childhood in a bid to shine a light on the neglected world of fostering and tracks down the foster carers who looked after her as a child, whom she hasn't seen for over 30 years.
