Channel 4 has commissioned a reality spin-off of My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, it has been revealed. The show - under the working title of Thelma's Gypsy Girls - will see Gypsy Weddings star Thelma Madine take on 10 gypsy trainers in her dress making business.
The show will be made by the same makers of Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and air sometime in the New Year.
Thelma advertised for girls to take part on Facebook and had more 700 applications
She said: “There are so many girls who want a job. Maybe they don’t work because they’ve never had that opportunity. I really do want to do this. The travellers have helped put me where I am today and this is my way of giving something back.”
