Meet Ben, he’s 16-year-old and just comes out to his mum during a car journey…

It melted our cold, frozen hearts

In this emotionally charged and heart-warming clip, Ben is speaking to his mum about coming out. Watch as you see his mum so proud and pleased for her son, finally being able to be himself.

Taxi of Mum & Dad features 8 families who’ve rigged their cars with multiple cameras, allowing us to eavesdrop on their every conversation. This brand new programme explores the joys and challenges of parenting teenagers today. It’s set in the one place where conversations still take place: the family car. At home parents have to compete with technology for their teens’ attention and rarely have the opportunity to catch up and connect. But offering a lift provides the perfect opportunity for parents to find out what’s really going on. Relationships, parties, holidays, drinking, work, school and home life are all explored in fresh and unfiltered conversations, over the course of a month of recorded journeys.


This is taken from Taxi of Mum and Dad which is on tomorrow (Thursday 17th) at 9pm on Channel 4.
