Paris Fury has refuted traveller stereotypes.
In a new interview, the wife of undefeated heavyweight champion Tyson Fury detailed the unexpected life skills that women are taught by their elders.
Paris, 33, insisted that female travellers – who often leave education after primary school – don’t ‘just learn how to cook and clean.’
The mum-of-seven revealed that her own mother, Lynda Mulroy, taught her a huge range of skills that go way beyond ‘how to shine silver or polish dishes.’
Paris said she was taught how to drive, use the bank, do businesses and paperwork, get into college, do job interviews and run a home.

Paris told The Sun: ‘I’ve come from a strong line of women, and we didn’t just learn how to cook and clean.
‘My mum taught me how to drive, she taught me how to use the bank, do businesses, get into college.’
Paris explained that as well as assisting her with homework, her mother showed her how to do paperwork and job interviews.
The mum-of-seven said: ‘I think travellers have this stereotype that all the women know is how to clean.
‘I wasn’t just taught how to shine silver or polish dishes, I was taught how to run a home, a business and be a strong, independent woman.’
It comes after Tyson admitted he tried to pay Netflix to pull out of his family documentary while half way through filming.
The undefeated heavyweight champion, 35, revealed that he tried to ‘pay his way out’ of the series, At Home With The Furys.

Tyson told Queensberry promotions: ‘I wanted to get rid of the filming. I couldn’t take it any more, it was overwhelming.
‘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.’
Despite actually enjoying the final Netflix docu-series, Tyson did complain that the streaming service didn’t film ‘the whole reality’.
He added: ‘You need to film me in the bath,’ which Netflix declined.
