LONG Lost Family: What Happened Next viewers were in tears as an abandoned man found out his dying mu begged his brother to look for him.
Simon was shocked to discover that not only did he have six other siblings, but they wanted to meet him in person.
Not only that, but the family – including his biological mum and dad – grew up just streets away from him in Gravesend, Kent.
Two of Simon’s brothers unfortunately passed away, but the rest met up with him – and they continue to see each other to this day.
However, things took a sad turn when one of his brothers told him about one of his mum’s last words.
When she was much older, she turned to him and said: “There’s one more. Go find him.”
His brother didn’t follow through though, as he didn’t put it together that his mum was talking about the abandoned Simon.
These words clearly touched Simon and took comfort in those words as proof she cared about him.
He said: “It proves that she still loved me, but what for whatever reason she had to give me up.”
Long Lost Family fans broke down in tears as they watched the scenes unfold, with one person saying: “He’s broken my heart the most tonight. He must have so many unanswered questions as his Mum and Dad are no longer here.”
