Reminiscing about her time filming Who Do You Think You Are?, which aired in 2018, she wrote: "My favourite trip of all time. When I filmed Who Do You Think You Are? and I walked in the footsteps of my ancestors. So special. Genoa, Italy."

During the episode, the Our Girl star discovered that her ancestor Giacomo Parodi hailed from Italy. Giacomo moved from Genoa to Gibraltar in the eighteenth century; Michelle paid an "emotional" visit to the church in Genoa where he was baptised.

"I presumed we had come from Spain to Gibraltar so to find out we were from Italy was a shock – but a nice one!" she told What's On TV, adding: "When I was younger, because of my olive skin, people said, 'Where are you from?' and now I know I've got Italian heritage."
