Sarah Dunkley, from London, was adopted after being abandoned by her mother at Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital in the 1960s and contacted the programme makers to learn more about her identity.

On next Monday’s show, she discovers she has a full biological sister, Carole Murphy, who shares an almost identical story and was left at a London hospital two years earlier.

Sarah has now revealed she was over the moon when she met her sister, telling the Radio Times: ‘It’s hard to describe, but there was a familiarity. It wasn’t like meeting someone I’d never met before.’

The sisters were both abandoned at birth and adopted, growing up unaware they had a full biological sibling. 

Sarah was resigned to never knowing her mother’s identity, having given up on finding her biological family.

Her adopted parents had told her that her mother had arrived at Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital in labour early in the morning but vanished the next day.

She gave doctors and nurses a false name and address.

Sarah explained: ‘I think she was quite brave to go into hospital and give birth knowing she was going to leave me there. I think she was in a desperate place.’

After Sarah contacted the programme, experts were able to locate her sister thanks to a submission of DNA to a national database.

Meanwhile Carole had a very similar story, having been adopted as a baby in the 1960s.

She knew very little of her biological family but knew her mother had left her at a hospital with a man whom she claimed was her husband.

The show breaks the news to the pair that they have a sibling and were both left at hospitals in London just two years apart. 

The sisters meet for the first time on the show, and are shocked to learn they have both settled and have been living as adults just 30 miles from one another. 

And they are amazed by their likeness when they compare pictures of themselves as young girls on the beach at Eastbourne. 

Carole said the pair were over the moon to be united, and revealed they felt an immediate likeness, sharing quite a lot of similar gestures. 

The show will be aired on ITV on May 26
