Long Lost Family viewers all say the same thing as estranged mother and daughter finally meet | The Sun
LONG Lost Family viewers were stunned as a guest reunited with her youthful looking 84-year-old mum on Monday's episode.
Judy, 65, spent over two decades searching for her biological mother without any luck.
Retired teacher Judy turned to the ITV show for help, and recalled that she was adopted at just two weeks old but feared that her mum was dead.
The mum-of-four admitted that she never felt welcome in her adoptive home in Shropshire.
However, the Long Lost Family team discovered that Judy's birth mother, Gina Masse, had given birth to her at the age of 19 and was forced to give her up for adoption.
More surprisingly, Gina, now 84, was still alive and living in the South of France.

In emotional scenes, Judy was reunited with her mum, as well as her two sisters Jane and Kate, and brother Christian in Cannes.
But viewers could not believe that Gina was 84-years-old and raced to comment on her youthful looks.
One wrote: "Judy’s mother looks amazing for a woman in her mid 80’s? I need to move to Cannes!! #longlostfamily"
Another posted: "Blimey. They look the same age! Mums doing well! #longlostfamily"

The same episode saw a woman who went in search of her long-lost brother tragically died while the show was working on her case.
Those tuning in were left in "floods of tears" after hearing the story of Jacinta Hickey.
In a tear-jerking opening few minutes, Davina explored the story of Jacinta and her desperate search to meet her brother.
The 68-year-old asked the team to help find her younger brother Paul in 2017, but sadly she passed away.
Following the tragic news, the team at ITV got in touch with her daughter Claire to help introduce her to Paul with the help of Sandra, Jacinta's younger sister.
As Jacinta's audition tape played on screen, viewers were left unable to contain their emotions, with dozens taking to Twitter to share their heartache.
Alongside an array of sad-faced emojis, one person penned: "Another week, another cry. Long Lost Family really pulls on the old heartstrings, doesn't it? So sad to hear at Jacinta."
