Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature launched to celebrate TV and Film’s glorious past.

Today, twenty years after TLC made epic gains at the 1996 Grammy Awards, we return to that year to unearth one of daytime TV’s buried treasures.

Picture the scene.

Chilli, one of the group’s staple members, enlisted the help of the talkshow host Sally Jesse Raphael as she searched far and wide to meet her long-lost father.

What happened next has to be seen to be believed.

Press play to find out why below…

Crazy, right?

The episode marked one of many unforgettable moments on ‘Sally’  before it was cancelled in 2002 and would lead the way for Chilli’s long, and often confusing, run on Reality TV (see ‘What Chilli Wants.’)
