Fans of Channel 4’s hit documentary series Big Fat Gypsy Weddings will no doubt be familiar with Danielle Mason – who is EastEnders star Jessie Wallace’s sister – and cage fighter Tony Giles, whose relationship has been followed by the media for months…
And of course, they’ve been followed by a Channel 4 camera crew as they prepared for what was billed to be the most lavish gypsy wedding to date.
However, a rather large spanner has been thrown into the works as the couple have reportedly split up following several rows.
The Mirror reports, “Cage fighter Tony promised his fiancee a lavish, ¬traditional gypsy wedding with hundreds of guests but it is all off after the couple, who are expecting a second baby in the summer, rowed over Christmas.”
A show source said, “It’s caused a headache for the programme makers – they also wanted to film Danielle and Tony celebrating her 30th. She doesn’t intend to include him.”
On New Year’s Eve, Danielle tweeted to her followers, “I try to forgive but I just can’t cause of how s*** he makes me feel.”
But it was a very different story in the summer of last year when Tony handed Danielle the keys to a neon pink car – complete with personalized number plate – for her birthday, and prior to that, he bought her a very expensive and garish engagement ring.
Back in July, the Daily Mail reported, “The happy couple are yet to set the date for their wedding, but Danielle has been welcomed into the traveller community despite her non-traveller background and the pair having a child before marriage.
“It is Danielle’s own family who will miss the wedding celebrations, with big sister Jessie still to meet baby Rudy.”
At the time, Danielle told Closer magazine, “I’d love Jessie to meet her nephew, even though things haven’t been good between us. She’s still my sister and I love her.”
