Channel 4 are planning a 'Big Fat Gypsy' Christmas special.

The show - which follows the lives of the travelling community - was a huge hit when it was aired earlier this year and now bosses want a festive version, which focuses on how gypsies prepare for Christmas.

Newlyweds Sam Norton and Patrick Sky Lee - whose extravagant wedding was shown in the series - are sure the show will be ratings winner because there's so much that goes on in the run-up to Yuletide, including the husbands having to splash out on eye-catching dresses for their wives to wear on December 25.

Sam told the Daily Star newspaper: "It's brilliant. The women all get specially-made dress for the day and that's on top of all their other gifts."

As well as the splashing out on extravagant dresses for their other halves, the men are allowed to let their hair down on Christmas Eve, leaving the women at home.

However, Patrick admitted: "Last year I got into trouble for coming home a bit worse for wear."
