We go to school but when we’re home, it’s like our own Traveller school here. I learn off my grandfather when he buys horses, and deals cars, I go with him so I can learn.”
The twins - who feature in the new series ofGypsy Kids- are keen fighters, learning their skills from their uncle, champion cage-fighter Tony Giles and even building their own gym in an old stable.
As Gypsies, the art of fighting is high on their priority list.
Johnny said: “Boxing is a big part of our culture and we don’t really have a choice with it.
“We have to do it because you have to stick up for yourself.”
Abraham added: “I do cage-fighting and boxing but I don’t really want to do that when I’m older. I just want to do it to learn self-defence because if anyone comes at you and does bad stuff, you need to protect your family and protect yourself.”
