Cher Lloyd

Former X Factor finalist Cher Lloyd is said to be in talks to take part in a celebrity version of Channel 4′s hit show ‘My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings’.

According to the Daily Star, telly bosses are keen to get Cher and fellow former X Factor star Shayne Ward – who both have traveller backgrounds – to appear in the programme.

It comes after Cher last month announced her engagement to boyfriend Craig Monk at the age of 18, and having been together for just six months.

Other ‘famous gypsies’ said to be wanted for the show include actor Bob Hoskins and singer David Essex.

A source explained to the tabloid: “No-one could have predicted how successful ‘My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding’ would be. Ratings have topped eight million, which is amazing for Channel 4.

“It means viewers just can’t get enough of the travellers and so it’s no surprise that we’re considering a show featuring celebrity gypsies.”

The show returned to Channel 4 on Tuesday night, with over 5 million viewers tuning in.
