Tom is moving out of the Malone family home, but what does that mean?

Gogglebox's the Malone family are a sure staple of the Channel 4 series, but with Tom Malone Jr set to fly the nest and move in with his girlfriend Bryony, what does that mean for his telly-watching future?

Tom, who is a professional dancer off the sofa, opened up about the possibility of the Malone family separating – and whether he'd be allowed to film for the show in his new home.

Admitting that he doesn't feel tied to Gogglebox, Tom told the Daily Star: "If the opportunity was good enough then yeah 100%, [one of the family] would leave. But I think the rest of us would be able to stay on Gogglebox."
