Talking to The Sunday Times Magazine, the actress said: "My parents separated when I was six, but at the age of 12 I discovered they had never been married, and that throughout their relationship my father was married to somebody else and had another family." Minnie, 51, said her mother Gaynor Churchward, helped her process the revelation.

In 2013 Good Will Hunting star Minnie went on the BBC show Who Do You Think You Are, which helped her reach "a new understanding" about her dad and "really changed my life."
