Tyson Fury tried to pay to stop 'bulls**t' Netflix series At Home With The Furys
| Last updated
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past month or so - you'll know that Tyson Fury has starred front and centre in a Netflix docu-series giving fans an insight into his life behind closed doors.
Fury, 35, opened up about what filming was like - revealing just how 'overwhelming' he found it all.
The official Netflix tagline for the incredibly popular series reads: "Following the heavyweight champion as he exits the ring and tries to embrace retirement with his family including his wife, Paris, father, John, and his six children."
As well as focusing on Tyson and Paris' family life, who have just welcomed their seventh child, viewers can also see Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague before the birth of their daughter, as the two prepared to become first-time parents.
Despite its success, Fury disclosed the whole thing could have been fobbed off before it even had legs.
Speaking to Queensberry promotions, the boxer explained: "I wanted to get rid of the filming. I couldn't take it any more, it was overwhelming."
He continued: "I tried to pay my way out of it, but I couldn't, so we got through it.
"I was happy I didn't because it's turned out to be a number one hit and a fantastic show – a fantastic insight in[to] a crazy family and the mind of a mental, crazy person."
Fury also dubbed the Netflix programme as 'bulls**t' and explained exactly why he had issues with the crew not filming 'the whole reality'.
Fury continued: "(It's) proper bulls**t. I said you need to film me taking a s**t, you need to film me having a shower, you need to film me in the bath and they said, 'Nope, can't do it.'"
While the show has clearly proven to have gone down a treat with fans, the much-anticipated series nearly didn't happen as at one point, Fury wanted to halt production during filming believing letting the cameras in was a 'mistake'.
Speaking on Capital XTRA Breakfast with Robert Bruce and Shayna Marie, The Gypsy King admitted to consulting lawyers during the filming process to find out whether he could break free from the contract he signed with Netflix.
"Yeah I wanted out," Fury explained, "I was like, couple of weeks in I said 'Is there any way?', I'd be on the phone with my lawyers 'Is there any way I can get out of this?'
"I don't know what I've signed up for again. I never said I'd do it again, I've done it again, I've made a mistake."
At Home with the Furys is available to stream now on Netflix.
