Channel 4 are planning a celebrity version of 'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding'.
Bosses at the network have been so impressed with the ratings their fly-on-the-wall show about traveller life has pulled in, they want to do spin-off programme which would feature stars with gypsy roots.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "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 gypsys."
The celebrities who are being lined up reportedly include singer David Essex, actor Bob Hoskins and 'X Factor' stars Cher Lloyd and Shayne Ward.
Highlights of the Channel 4 show - which is next aired tomorrow (01.02.11) at 9pm - so far have included a bride who had to have a fire extinguisher on stand-by in case her huge dress caught alight and learning about un unusual dating technique called 'grabbing'.
