“The thing that I was very particular about with the producers is that I want to cover all brides because I think the bridal market in particular, is so conventional and white middle class, we want to extend that and we want to make sure we’re representing every person out there and not just women in fact.
“With Say Yes to The Dress, you’ve got to three weddings every single episode and you get to see the process, and as a viewer, I want to go to different weddings!
“We’re lucky in this country because the LGBTQ community can get married, and so while we should be celebrating that, we also have a social responsibility to be an authority and an inspiration to other countries around the world and support those people that can’t get married in their own country.
The show, which ran for four seasons on Channel 4, saw Gok Wan style and celebrate women’s bodies, challenging his participants to show off their best assets in front of the nation, as well as offering accessible fashion tips for the millions watching at home.
Filming came to an end in 2008, but now, almost 10 years later, everyone’s favourite ‘fairy Gokmother’ has revealed that it’s returning, with a new home on Discovery’s Really channel. It’s time again to show the world what you’re made of!
“We started filming in September and it will go out in Spring 2019.
But we are constantly looking for new brides-to-be to apply for the show.” Tomorrow is the day!!
And while your bride squad (yes, including your mother-in-law) should be on hand help you choose your dream dress, no one is more reliable than fashion aficionado, Gok Wan.
So you’ll be pleased to know that Gok Wan is the new host of Say Yes to the Dress, and he’s on the lookout for brides-to-be to appear in the new series of the wedding dress shopping show. Tonight my new series of Say Yes To The Dress Lancashire airs on @tlctvuk at 9pm.
