Channel 4 has decided against making any more series of 'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding', but confirms they will still make some one-off specials

Channel 4 has axed 'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding'.

The station's head Jay Hunt confirmed the series - which made a star out of Paddy Doherty - would not be returning as it was "important to know where to draw the line".

However, he did confirm there would be "special" one-off episodes.

He said: "We have quite naturally got to a point where we are thinking differently about the franchise. There will be more 'Gypsy Weddings' next year, we are doing some specials, but not another series.

"Entirely for creative reasons, it's important to know when to draw the line and I think we're close to drawing it. There comes a point where you have to move on."

Previous instalments have seen men bare-knuckle fighting, girls injured by the size of their wedding dresses and grabbing - a form of dating amongst teenagers in the UK's gypsy community.

It is not known what or who the subject matters of the special episodes will be.

After appearing in 'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding', Paddy went on to win a series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
