Tyson's Fury Over Gypsy Reality Show: It's All Fake!

Tyson Fury, a gypsy who lives on a caravan site near Manchester, said Channel 4 has fooled the British public with Big Fat Gypsy Weddings .

Tyson, 22, named after ring legend Mike Tyson, 44, said the gypsies featured on the show do not even live in caravans.

He stormed: “Not all travellers are My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding material.

“In fact, if all you knew about the traveller community was from watching that show then you would be well off the mark.

“For starters it only shows a particular set of travellers and it’s all fake. They’re all putting on an act for the cameras.

“The travellers on that show you see going into trailers probably all have houses.”

The series, which pulled in more than eight million viewers a week, focused on their lavish weddings.

But 6ft 9in Tyson, who became a pro in 2008 and has won all his 14 fights, said the stars are showing off.

“Those crazy wedding dresses you see on that programme, they just know they’re going on TV so they’re pushing the boat out,” he claimed. “It’s just a big put-on.”

And he took a swipe at bare- knuckle fighter Paddy Doherty, 52, who landed in court after accusing his cousin of beating him up.

Tyson told a magazine: “Even the resident hardman of the show, Paddy Doherty, admitted he exaggerated his tough-guy image. He hasn’t had a fight in 30 years.

“These people are the lowest of the low in my book.

“We settle things among ourselves in the travelling community. Men like that are scum and God deals with them in his own way.”

Tyson’s dad John Fury, 46, recently began an 11-year jail sentence for gouging a fellow traveller’s eye out. But Tyson says he was just defending himself.

He added: “My dad was at a vehicle auction when the fight happened.

“Dad was just defending himself – he didn’t mean to poke the guy’s eye out.

“There was no way this fella wanted a fair fight, believe me.”

A Channel 4 spokesman said: “Big Fat Gypsy Weddings was an observational documentary series. It was a fair and accurate representation of what happened during filming.

“Any allegations of fakery are entirely unfounded.”

I knew it was a bit of a put on. But I don't doubt that a lot of these travelers spend fortunes on their weddings. They have more disposable income that most of us. Also, you can't accidently pokes a man's eye out.
