AN estimated one in five British families is affected by estrangement - and knowing how to move a relationship forward without help can be tough. 

The subject is being tackled in a new Channel 4 TV series, Relative Strangers.

In each episode, two family members who want help are brought together for four days under the guidance of an experienced relationship expert.

The production company is looking for young people in Ealing and Hillingdon, aged 17-plus, who want expert help to reconnect with mum, dad, brother or sister to who, they no longer speak to or have never met.
