Channel 4 Plan Big Fat Gypsy Christmas

Channel 4 are planning a Christmas special of their hugely successful ‘Big Fat Gypsy’ series.

The show, which follows the lives of the travelling community, aired earlier this year to large viewing figures and now bosses want a festive version, which focuses on gypsies preparing for Christman.

The extravagant wedding of Sam Norton and Patrick Sky Lee was show in the series, and the couple are sure the show will be a ratings winner as there’s so much going on in the run-up to Christmas, including husbands spending large amounts on eye-catching dresses for their wives to wear on December 25.

Sam told the Daily Star newspaper: “It’s brilliant. The women all get specially-made dress for the day and that’s on top of all their other gifts.”

The men go out on Christmas Eve to celebrate the yuletide season, leaving their wives at home. Patrick admitted: “Last year I got into trouble for coming home a bit worse for wear.”
