“There is huge creative potential at BBC Three"
Faryal Makhdoom has confirmed that her reality show Meet the Khans: Big in Bolton will air on March 28, 2021.
The show will follow her and her family.
Her husband Amir Khan had previously said it was fun filming the reality show.
The news of the show was revealed in August 2020 during a session for the Edinburgh TV Festival by BBC Three controller Fiona Campbell.
Amir had taken to his Instagram Stories and said:
“Another day filming.”
BBC Three controller Fiona Campbell announced the show as well as other upcoming projects. She said:
“These new commissions represent a good cross-section of where we’re going to next alongside our big returners, like The Rap Game and RuPaul’s Drag Race.
“The Joey Essex film and Meet the Khans features figures that have had to struggle for success and are aspirational stories, whereas Dance Crush is entertaining escapist content and Planet Sex is centred on themes and questions that are so important to our audience.
“There is huge creative potential at BBC Three and there’s more to come from us in the coming months.”
Producers of Meet the Khans have billed the show as a “high gloss, entertaining reality series”.
It will take viewers into the world of Amir and Faryal, giving “an exclusive insight into the real couple behind the splashy tabloid headlines, glitzy boxing matches and glamorous posed photoshoots”.
The “access all areas” show is filmed in Bolton and it is expected that their children will be an active part of the show.
It is also set to feature the extended Khan family, his friends and the boxing gym where he mentors local boys.
Meanwhile, Faryal juggles being a mother and her business plans, which include launching her cosmetic range.
There had been reports that the show would be delayed following an alleged bust-up at the boxer’s mansion.
Officers from Greater Manchester Police (GMP) had arrived at the Khan’s home to investigate if a man was behaving in an aggressive manner.
The police stated they would continue with inquiries after confirming they visited the professional boxer’s six-bedroom detached home.
A source revealed that Amir Khan was worried that the incident would impact the schedule and delay the filming of the reality show.
However, Amir confirmed this would not be the case and said:
“The filming of my forthcoming TV series has not been delayed in any way and will be out for everyone to enjoy in the near future.”
Amir Khan’s spokesman said that no offence had been committed.
Bolton News reported that the eight-part reality show will air on BBC Three, which is on iPlayer.
