Earlier this week, we brought you news that the travelling community were upset with the portrayal of their lifestyle and culture on Channel 4′s hit programme, Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, and now we bring you the news that they plan to sue the broadcaster.
The series ended earlier this week and pulled in more than 8 million viewers per episode with many choosing to watch the final show rather than the Brit Awards on ITV last Tuesday.
One representative group said the show had even caused bullying and has also proven to be detrimental to their livelihood, therefore they are reportedly planning to sue for £10 million.
Earlier this week, hardman Paddy Doherty, 51, admitted in court that he had played up to the persona of being a prize fighter “bred to fight” however he told the court that this was a lie and he has not taken part in a fight for over 30 years.
It seemed likely that Channel 4 were to shoot a second series due to its success but what with all the controversy and now a possible impending court case, it is unclear whether they plan to do so.
