You Don't Know You're Born is a British television documentary series that aired on ITV from 23 January to 6 February 2007. It features celebrities looking into their family tree.


You Don't Know You're Born follows in the wake of the successful BBC programme Who Do You Think You Are?. Both shows are made by Wall to Wall. You Don't Know You're Born shows celebrities tracing their family tree and then travelling to where their ancestors lived and doing the jobs they did. It is narrated by Barbara Flynn. The show was cancelled after three episodes due to wide criticism for it being basically a clone of its BBC counterpart.
