British boxer Amir Khan has landed his own reality TV show called ‘Meet the Khans: Big in Bolton’, a year after the 2004 Olympic Games silver medal winner’s last fight
The British fighter has been out of the boxing ring for just over a year, beating Billy Dib in Suadi Arabia for the vacant WBC international welterweight title.
But the 33-year-old has kept himself busy outside of sport during his career, making appearances on shows such as I’m a Celebrity.
The show, due to air on BBC Three next spring, will follow Amir, 33, and beauty influencer Faryal as they juggle their careers while bringing up Lamaisah, six, Alayna, two, and six-month-old Muhammad Zaviyar
The new series will also feature the former world light welterweight champ’s wife Faryal Makhdoom and their three children.
BBC Three controller Fiona Campbell said: “It’s about family and struggles and relationships. It epitomises what BBC Three wants to be. It’s going to be really cool.”
The couple have lived in Amir’s hometown since their New York wedding in 2013, but they recently sold their £1.2m mansion.
The boxer, who temporarily split from Faryal, 29, in 2017 amid cheat claims, is no stranger to TV.
He has appeared on I’m A Celebrity, Countdown, Beat the Star, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and Celebrity Juice.
But the TV series could get dramatic as Khan broke Covid-19 rules to sort a bitter 18-month family feud.
The Khan family has been in a bitter feud since 2016, when Mr Khan’s parents branded his wife Faryal Makhdoom “evil” and a bad mum.
In 2017, Khan appeared on the seventeenth series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! He was the highest-paid contestant in the history of the show.
