Jackson Family to move to Appledore?? 

Channel 4 Reality TV show planned for the Jackson Five family ... 

Jacksons' friend Matt Fiddes (well known in North Devon for his  Barnstaple Karate Academy) has been assisting the Jacksons with their plans.



Tito Jackson and family will star in an Osbournes'-style reality TV show - set in an English fishing village.
The family have booked a five-bed holiday home at Appledore on the North Devon coast and have told friends they are looking to move to the area permanently.
Their deal, believed to be with Channel 4, will see Tito (pictured, left) based at the house with other family members - including Michael, Janet, Jermaine and parents Joseph and Katherine - flying in for short breaks.
Family friend Matt Fiddes, who operates a national martial arts training franchise, orchestrated the deal. 'The TV people will follow them from California to Appledore and make a documentary on how they settle in," he said.
"With Michael, you never know. He doesn't say too much. But I'll be very surprised if he doesn't show up too."

Channel 4 would not confirm its involvement in the At Home With The Jacksons TV project. But Appledore residents are already gearing up for their arrival.
One said, "As long as they keep the music down and avoid wild parties they'll get on fine."
Recent media articles have suggested the family is "broke."
