Gwyneth Paltrow has discovered a fascinating family fact while tracing her roots for hit U.S. TV show Who Do You Think You Are? - her great great great grandfather was a beloved Jewish holy man.

The actress tracked her ancestors back to Barbados while taping the show, which airs in America on Friday night (01Apr11) - but the biggest surprise came when she returned to New York and discovered her great great great grandfather was a "master of Kabbalah" - the mystic Jewish offshoot Paltrow studies today.

Documents show he was "a miracle worker" who once saved his community from a raging fire through his faith. She said, "This is all kinda blowing my mind." (KL/WNV/PAW)
