Gogglebox viewers have flocked to compliment Tom Malone Sr on his staggering weight loss as the series returns to Channel 4.
Sure, his son Tom Malone Jr may have departed the show, but his dad Tom Sr is looking the picture of health in his son’s Tik Tok videos.
Recently, the pair have been seen dancing together despite Tom Jr’s decision to leave the show as it returns for its 17th run on Channel 4.
“Love your family, your dad is looking very healthy,” one Tik Tok viewer replied.
A second wrote: “Your dad is the gift is that keeps on giving.”
On Friday, Tom Jr took to Twitter to voice his opinion as the series returned without him at 9pm.
He told followers: “Well this is going to feel strange…I’m going to enjoy it though #Gogglebox.”
A fan replied: “There’s something just comforting about Gogglebox. It really shouldn’t work when you think about it, but it just does. I love it.”
A second added: “I think humans are hard wired to live in Groups. Extended families. Communes (almost). Gogglebox satisfies that basic need, for a short time, at least.”
Another wrote: “I didn’t know you were leaving, Tom. I’m crap at being up to date with goings-on. Best of luck for your new era.”
Tom Snr. looks completely different to how he did when he first graced our TV screens six years ago.
“It’s going to be strange not seeing you on the sofa with your parents and the dogs,” another wrote.
