Big Fat Gypsy Weddings 3/5: Desperate Housewive

9:00pm Tuesday, February 1 on C4

The third film in the series looks beyond the enormous wedding dresses, sequins and tiaras to unveil the lot of a gypsy woman. It’s not all just about having blingtastic nuptials. With literacy and education largely deemed unnecessary and domestic abuse startlingly common, the contrast between the daily life of a gypsy girl and the glitz and glamour of their wedding day is stark. Does it all come down to the Cinderella-style wish to be a Princess just for one day?
