The production company behind telly ratings monster My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding is making a documentary series about Edinburgh’s sex industry.

Bosses at Channel 4 have confirmed Firecracker – maker of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, which pulled in up to 8.7 million viewers thanks to its upfront portrayal of Britain’s gypsy and travelling families – will film a “character-led observational documentary series” about performers in the city’s best-known lap dancing bars.

They said the series would follow dancers as they go about their day-to-day routines as part of a wider look at Edinburgh’s “diverse urban and business communities”.
