Hit reality show Big Fat Gypsy Weddings is returning for Royal Wedding special

Channel 4‘s hit TV show Big Fat Gypsy Weddings will return with a special royal episode on 29 April – the same day Kate Middleton marries Prince William.

Boss Jay Hunt has commissioned My Big Fat Royal Gypsy Wedding to compete with BBC1 and ITV’s 8-hour coverage of the much-anticipated event.

‘If you thought all the excitement would be at Westminster Abbey on 29 April – think again,’ a Channel 4 spokesman tells the Daily Record. 

The gypsy bride will be made to feel like a ‘princess for the day’ and going by previous episodes of Big Fat Gypsy Weddings – which drew 8million viewers an episode earlier this year – her dress will be just as talked about as Kate‘s.

The reality show will also return again this Christmas to give viewers an insight into the way travellers celebrate the festive season.

‘Viewers just can’t get enough of the gypsies,’ a source tells the Daily Star.

‘It’s going to be one Big Fat Gypsy Christmas for everyone.’
