Amy has said:
Whenever I travelled, people always asked me where I was from. When I replied, ‘England’, they would ask, ‘Okay, but what are your roots? You don’t look fully English!’ My family is the most important thing to me, and we’re very close, but the history of my kin is quite vague. So, I took it upon myself to try and make some sense of it. My dad’s family history is almost impossible to figure out. We know that my father’s grandma was Portuguese and she landed up on the Isle of Man… in the early 1900s. She settled there and started a new life but all of us are unsure about what happened before that.
Amy’s paternal grandfather was named Les Jackson.
Amy’s paternal grandmother was named Edna.
