SIR Patrick Stewart is to appear on television as he delves into his family’s history next week.

The Mirfield-born actor will star in the BBC’s celebrity family history series Who Do You Think You Are?

His episode will air on BBC One at 9pm on Wednesday.

In it, Sir Patrick will search out information about his ancestors and no doubt uncover a secret or two along the way.

The current series has already explored the family history of EastEnders actress Samantha Womack and Masterchef star Gregg Wallace. Future episodes will feature singer Annie Lennox and footballer John Barnes.
