The fifth series of the hit show promises some of its most heart-wrenching stories yet with many firsts for the show; from a couple searching together for their son, to a mother who tells us how she had to give up her child not once but twice, and the show's first father searching.

Across six episodes viewers are taken on a moving journey from despair to discovery as we join relatives in their struggle to find that person who is absent from their lives.
