Comedienne Deborah Frances-White's own true story of hunting her birth mother to find out why she gave her away. From April 2015.
Comedian Deborah Frances-White tells the true life story of her search for her birth mother.
Deborah is Australian but now living in London. With the vocal assistance of Thom Tuck, Alex Lowe, and Celia Pacquola, she ploughs through Google and Facebook to seek out her long lost family before finally hiring a private detective.
Deborah soon uncovers clues that lead her to the discovery of a genuine relative - her aunt - but not before some odd detours, including possibly being related to a one-armed champion pole dancer.
Eventually, contact is made with Deborah's real mother, Devon, and she must ask the awkward question - why was she given away?
