What's on TV tonight? Shows to watch on Wednesday 6 June from Who Do You Think You Are? to The Truth About Carbs

Who Do You Think You Are? 9pm, BBC One

It’s not only the stories that make this show so compelling to watch, but also the celebrity’s reaction to those tales.

Thankfully, both are top drawer as actress Michelle Keegan (right) delves into her family tree.

It’s a journey that takes her from Manchester to Genoa via Gibraltar, and her look of wonderment as she explores a church in the Italian city and strokes the font where her ninth great grandfather was baptised will give you goose bumps.

She also learns that her great-great- grandmother, Elizabeth Kirwan, was a supporter of the suffragettes.

The Truth About Carbs, 8pm, BBC One

Dr Xand van Tulleken (left) used to weigh 19st, so he has both a personal and medical interest in discovering whether carbs really are a killer.

He learns about a type of carbohydrate called resistant starch, which helps keep bowel cancer at bay, and investigates whether carb consumption is linked to infertility.

Grenfell: The First 24 Hours, 9pm, ITV

Survivors and firefighters involved in one of the worst tragedies in recent British history share their experiences on this hard-to-watch documentary.
