Noni Hazlehurst never had the close relationship with her mother Leonie that she so badly wanted. Now, thanks to Who Do You Think You Are?, she knows why.

The series uncovers the trauma that Noni's mother went through during WWII. At the time, she was living in the UK city of Liverpool with her baby son Cameron. Her husband George was in the army.

"She was very good at masking how she really felt and she didn't tell us about what she endured during the war," Noni says.

"I just felt a lot of regret that she didn't feel like she could open those boxes of trauma and let us have an intimacy that I craved."

"She was very frightened of loud noises, and not knowing what that came from, I didn't understand that about her. I thought she overreacted."

The biggest blow-up in My Kitchen Rules history sees normally level-headed judges Manu Feildel and Pete Evans lose their cool and kick out a team. "Everyone was so upset. There are always fights, but this was too far," Manu tells OK!. "We love people with opinions – otherwise it would be boring. A competition does mean a bit of fire, but [with] Sonya and Hadil, I felt like I was dealing with my teenage son!"The drama and non-stop bickering kicked off during sisters Jess and Emma's Super Dinner Party.

Noni says her mother, who had a career on stage as a young woman, wanted her to go into musical comedy, rather than the type of roles she ended up doing.

"I always felt like I was a bit of a disappointment to her," Noni adds.

"I think generally she had a real disappointment about what life had dealt her."

"It's an amazing story."
