Britain's Got Talent 2013: Can Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden find a star?
Big Fat Gypsy Weddings spin-off due this summer
Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and Thelma Madine
The success of Big Fat Gypsy Weddings has, unsurprisingly, led Channel 4 to commission another spin-off.
Thelma's Gypsy Girls will centre around dressmaker Thelma Madine. She is the fairy godmother of gypsy and traveller girls, having created some of the most elaborate wedding gowns ever seen on TV.
Thelma needs to expand to keep up with demand. So to give something back to the community that has made her name, she is taking on a group of inexperienced gypsy and traveller girls as trainees to help create dream dresses for her demanding clientele.
Think Jamie's Kitchen but with silk, sequins and satin.
This is a project very dear to Thelma's heart; she has always wanted to pass on her skills and expertise. Thelma's Gypsy Girls will follow her and the trainees for six months, from recruitment to successfully completing their traineeship. But with no prior work experience, and some of the girls having little or no literacy skills, it's a huge undertaking.
Can these young girls really learn to make such intricate dresses in just six months? The show airs this summer.
