An incestuous couple are the stars of this week's episode of My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding as the shock factor of TLC's show reaches new highs.
Annie and her first cousin Josh claim to be in love and as far as their family is concerned, the only sin is that they aren't already married.
As one bridesmaid and unspecified family member puts it quite bluntly: 'Our family believes in incest.'
The odd couple: Annie and Josh are first cousins which is fine by their families who according to Annie's bridesmaid 'believe in incest'
The yellow-toothed bride-to-be exclaims: 'We love each other,' before proudly planting a kiss on her cousin's lips and cosying up for a cuddle.
In anticipation of their shotgun nuptials, Annie orders a dress that is described as 'a high voltage dress that blows her mind.'
