Len Goodman, Michelle Collins, and Daisy McAndrew continue researching their ancestors' prison history in the final part of Secrets From The Clink.

Michelle is horrified by the Dickensian conditions her ancestor experienced in a debtors prison after his umbrella-making workshop fell into debt. His only way out of prison was to sell his entire business and start from scratch.

And Daisy discovers her great-great-great-great-great grandmother dodged the hangman's noose and was transported to Australia where her fortunes changed.
