Traveller Missy MacMillan on Channel 4's My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding


The television show My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding has been criticised for misrepresenting the travelling community in the UK.

Missy MacMillan is a traveller from Edinburgh. She tells BBC Radio 5 live that the programme bears no resemblance to her life.

"A lot of people are so quick to judge," MacMillan explains to Nicky Campbell and Shelagh Fogarty.

"They actually don't know a lot about our culture."
