that's I'm almost you're that's crazy you know swings and roundabouts so a while back my dad did a bit of family tree stuff so I've got like a little basic knowledge mostly I think I'm just gonna be English or on my dad's side of the family we were used living in the kind of Eastern European area so maybe if I have anything interesting it's probably gonna come from that for me well I've got kind of mixed heritage my mum's from Nigeria and my dad was born in Jamaica but my mum is quite fair she's like really really light skinned so I think there might be like a throwback European Jean in there somewhere so I'm going to say like maybe just to mix up a little bit like ten percent European some way for me I'm expecting to find out that I'm half Italian and half English my dad both his parents moved over to the UK after the war and they're both Italian my dad's dad is from Sicily and my dad's mom is from mainland Italy so I expect it to be sort of a mix between English and Italian I think I'll probably just be 100% English it's really really uninspiring an exciting I mean shortly my surname is kind of a bit German French but otherwise just canal town indoor beads what about you well I think my mum's mum was Irish so I think I was 25% me already accounted for my last name Percy which is PE rcy what the Percy families were actually the most powerful noble family in England in the Middle Ages so I'm thinking you know some royal roots but the evolution of that name came from the French perceive with an eye so I think there'll be some French roots in there as well that sort of trickle down through hundreds of years so I'm really excited to see what else it could be I've no idea oh well that's when all over myself that wasn't even in the tube that was everywhere by adhesive there we go okay my biohazard is ready it's ready so it's been a couple of weeks since we send our vital spit off to the lab they've obviously been doing something with it but we're just I've been so nervous already so your prediction was 25% Irish with French roots and as a total you are 99.9 percent European okay and that 76.8% British and Irish and then 11.1% French and German German it's entirely German there's none of it French none Roger Tribby on and then 1.1 percent Scandinavian and then one more thing which is just based on all of yours of DNA relatives on the site and it tells you the sort of percentages of those relatives and what they're more likely or not likely to do 32 percent more likely to have worked as a lifeguard bit more glamorous and a lifeguard but I am really nice I look great in a red swimsuit yeah the other thing that the site tells you is how many Neanderthal variants you have genes you have the came originally from the end of those you have 275 you have 275 variants but it does mean that you have the genetic variant which is associated from having less back hair you know swings and roundabouts if mines are hot okay I'm so ready for your my dog okay so you said 100 selling glitch prediction your hundred percent European okay British and Irish seventy four point two percent me and that's London primarily but then also a big group in Manchester South Yorkshire and Lancashire yeah we guessed Sheffield is that region so that explains my dad sorry but none London nation Guinea dungeon French and German 7.8% Scandinavians 6.3% okay okay expect somewhere somewhere the ice from somewhere yeah and then otherwise it's just broadly Northwest North Western European eleven point five and broadly European not point two so that's can't pin it down okay and so you have three hundred and eighteen Neanderthal variants which is more than 96% of 23 million customers so you do have the variant associated with having less back hair very social person I'd like to think that they all yeah we mind you did the profiles like okay 48.6% is Ashkenazi Jewish Wow pretty accurate yeah and then 32.1% British Scandinavian 4.7% oh wow no I didn't know that's cool and the Netherlands or Germany 2.9% okay yeah I mean that's pretty much along the lines of why I expected obviously like pretty much half Jewish of non Jewish and I knew that the immigrants can it came from that sort of area of Europe so yeah not too many surprises that but he's pretty happy with a Latino didn't know about the Scandinavia and that's cool got a tiny bit of Viking in me the other thing is awesome Attica Lee finds your sort DNA relatives all of the relatives are seventy six percent less likely to have lived in there farm when they were young 49 percent more likely to warm braces on their teeth I had braces that's yeah pretty accurate and 58 percent less likely to drink energy drinks yeah I'm not much of a Red Bull guy so is that because of sugar do you know how the sugar affect you I've got no idea the normal amount I think sub-saharan African 97.6% yeah why four so quite I've been quite a big percentage and that is 72.2% Nigerian oh okay that's quite a lot and then 8.2% Congolese that makes sense actually we can about that because my my dad's from Jamaica and but he's quite dark he's like where's this nice quite dark levels and if you see him he does look very very sort like Central African surprise is he gonna be surprised about that he's gotta be six point two percent coastal West African not point four percent southern East African okay it's interesting and then North point one percent African hunter-gatherers and [Laughter] then your possible European throwback gene you have two point four percent European oh there we go which is one point one percent British and Irish you most likely had a third fourth fifth or sixth great-grandparent it was a hundred percent British or Irish this person was likely born between 1750 and 1840 and then you're sort of DNA relatives online they are 102 percent more likely to feel jittery what after drinking caffeine yes a hard you said yeah I can't have as you guys know I've got drink to your coffee 52% more like to have a perfect pitch that's where you can like so you could sing like a c-note get this guy in x-factor next season I scared definitely on your father's side going way way back you have a distant relative and this is a sort of 73 thousand year old relative with Pharaoh Ramses the third so your great-grandfather 73 thousand years is also his great-grandfather oh my okay let me to that point related to royalty on earth way way back but yeah I can kind of say that yeah don't only go to ad 28.2% Italian okay that's that's less than I thought it would be I mean 28 that's like just over a quarter so that's that's definitely less than I thought it would be so that means my dad must not be he's definitely my dad but he must not be as Italian as he thinks he is maybe and then 24.9% French and German hot are you kidding 24.9% French and German so you're as German or French as you are yeah yeah I mean so so I mean I'm I'm more French and German than I am British yep so what how much your 11.1% British no really Wow that's like that's I'm almost you that's crazy and then you have 1.2% Western Asian and North African oh yeah okay well the samurais my life has been a lie culturally I couldn't really be any more British so that's a bit of a shock to me I had no idea they were so much French and German in my ancestry I don't really really know what I mean I guess that's just because lots of British people will have French and German they don't know about but yeah that's really interesting so humans are actually 99.5% identical it's that 0.5% that provides us with this genetic diversity with regards to your results we've had adoptees that have no clue what their ancestry is and then are able to see a reflection of you know multiple continents within their results but we see that happen quite often you know people don't realize that you know people migrated from different areas to places that are nearby and just because you were born in a specific country doesn't necessarily mean that your DNA comes from there
