An estimated 1 in 5 British families are affected by estrangement – and knowing how to move a relationship forward without help can be incredibly tough.

In each episode, two family members who want help with their relationship are brought together for a unique four day process under the guidance of an experienced relationship expert.

While not every attempt will be successful, the show’s expert is highly experienced in helping estranged family members and the hope is that people in the series will be helped to establish positive and lasting relationships.

If you are interested in taking part, email RelativeStrangers@electricray.com or call 0207 061 8536 or 07719 012 147.
