Joey Essex, but not quite as you’ve seen him before…

Every year, 41,000 young people lose a parent in the UK. At the age of just 10, Joey’s world was ripped apart when his mum tragically took her own life.

In this new documentary, follow Joey who with the help of a psychologist embarks on a deeply personal journey to come to terms with the impact his mother’s death had on him and his identity.
