Gypsy star in court over fight with cousin

My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding star Paddy Doherty was due to be sentenced today at Manchester Crown Court after he got into a brutal fight with another Traveller.

A mobile phone video camera captured Doherty (52) trading punches with his cousin Johnny Joyce (21) in a shopping centre car park last June.

Johnny Joyce admitted a single charge of affray on June 10 this year and his brother, Douglas Joyce, pleaded guilty to a public order offence of using threatening or insulting words or behaviour.

The brothers, from Cherry Avenue, Manchester, will be sentenced on January 13.

Doherty, formerly of Duchy Road caravan park in Salford, pleaded guilty to affray last month.
