Tyson Fury says Netflix show was a 'mistake' and wanted to cancel during filming

Starting today, fans of boxing legend Tyson Fury have been given a unique insight into life behind closed doors of the heavyweight champion with Netflix's At Home With the Furys.

However, the much-anticipated series nearly didn't happen as Tyson at one point 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.

And that wasn't all, as Tyson's wife, Paris, explained how one of their children wanted to escape the cameras during a 'teenage tantrum'.


Paris said: "I think the little ones found it complete normality, the younger ones is like six and down, they didn't know any different, just cameras around, right cameras are in today, no problem.

"My older girl who is just starting to be a teenager, we went through the teenage tantrums the whole time we was filming.

"So that was all on there and that was hard work because we'd be like 'Right, cameras are here', 'I don't care, I'm not interested, I'm not bothered, I want to be the Rob of the Kardashians'."


She continued: "I think they enjoyed it because they all agreed to do it, we talked to the bigger two, the little ones were too young, the big two we were like 'Do you want to do it, do you want to be involved?' and they were like 'Yeah, yeah', but then there's times when I suppose you don't want to.

"Especially when Tyson said no he didn't want to. We got halfway through filming, and he wanted to cancel the whole show!"

While Paris pretty much explained the whole situation, Tyson added: "Yeah I wanted out, 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."

The boxing champion then went on to discuss how his mental health is well documented in the series, something he has been very open about in the past.

"That's just my bipolar going up and down all the time, one minute I'm happy, the next minute I'm not and it's very evident to see my emotional roller-coaster throughout this episode," he said.

"People are going to be shocked because I can take 10 turns in an hour."
