A source told the Sun: “Peaky Blinders is huge these days. It’s a global smash. So it’s no surprise the makers want to try and cash in on that when they can.

“There are a couple of unofficial pubs out there already which the makers want to bring to heel.

“The Coyote Ugly film (about a gang of bar workers, released in 2000) spawned bars all over the world and Caryn knows Peaky Blinders could have that same appeal.

Commercial chiefs have filed for trademarks to allow them to sell cosmetics, clothes, jewellery, food, drink and open a chain of barbershops, pubs, bars and restaurants.

The documents have been lodged with the Intellectual Property Office.

If they are accepted, the firm will have legal protection to use the terms to market goods and services for 10 years.
