A MENTAL health nurse from Hampshire is set to appear on an episode of Long Lost Families.

Sue Davis, 68, will be reunited with a brother she did not know she had in the show on Monday, July 24.

Sue lives with her husband of 45 years, Steve, in Farnborough.  They have two daughters and twin grandchildren.  Sue grew up with two sisters and was raised by her dad and her mum, Mollie, who grew up just outside Winchester in the 1940s.

When Sue was in her mid-twenties, her mother told her that she’d had a baby son before she met and married Sue’s dad, and that the baby was adopted. Five years ago after Mollie had passed away, Sue began to look for her brother.

Long Lost Family was able to locate Sue’s brother Richard Whyte, who had moved to Queensland, Australia, having settled there at the age of 16 and getting married to a woman called Elizabeth. He replied to the show’s approach and travelled 10,000 miles to the UK to meet his family.

The pair reunited in the UK, alongside Sue’s sisters Sally and Dinah.

Sue said: “To know that he’s had a happy life…and he’s got a wonderful family himself – mum would be so proud of him.

“All of us. Four of us together…first time in 76 years!”

The episode of Long Lost Family featuring Sue and Richard will air on ITV1 on Monday, July 24 at 9pm.
