Secrets from The Clink In a brand new, two-part series, entertainer Len Goodman, comedian Johnny Vegas, actress Michelle Collins, broadcaster Mariella Frostrup and reporter Daisy Mcandrew, discover the crimes their ancestors committed dating back to the Victorian Era and the punishments they received. The Victorians built many of the prisons that are still in use today such as Wormwood Scrubs, Strangeways and Pentonville but life inside them was very different. Back then prisoners were subject to hard labour and isolation and the alternative was the death penalty or transportation. Through exploring the story of each of the star’s ancestors, Secrets From The Clink gives an insight into the Victorian penal system and what day-to-day life was like for convicts
