BBC Three have announced that Meet the Khans: Big in Bolton will return for a second series.
The reality show takes viewers into the world of boxer Amir Khan and his influencer wife Faryal Makhdoom.
The first series aired earlier in 2021 and had six million requests on BBC iPlayer as the couple were seen juggling parenthood, marriage and business.
On August 26, 2021, BBC Three announced that there would be a second series of Meet the Khans, with 10 more 30-minute episodes.
A teaser revealed: “The next chapter of the story explores their wider sphere and the audience will be introduced to more of the couple’s family and friends as Amir ponders what’s next for him in sport, Faryal celebrates a milestone birthday and launches a new enterprise.”
Amir and Faryal shared:
“We’re excited about the new series – you’ll have to wait and see what’s next for us!”
Fiona Campbell, BBC Three Controller said:
“We’re really excited that we have the Khans back for more.
“Meet The Khans really brought something new to the channel and series one was really popular with the audience.
“Faryal and Amir are both stars in their own right and we’re really glad that they are opening up their doors to us for more.”
A release date for the new episodes is yet to be confirmed.

The first series saw Amir work on his multimillion-pound wedding venue and discuss the obstacles he has encountered with it.
Meanwhile, Faryal launched her own line of cosmetics.
The couple also travelled to the likes of London and Dubai while also engaging in arguments over trivial matters.
Their three children also made appearances on the show, with one episode celebrating their son Zaviyar’s first birthday.
