Why did Tom leave Channel 4’s goggle box?

Tom left the series back in February to focus on new opportunities.

The professional dancer confirmed the news just days before a new series of Gogglebox.

He wrote on Twitter at the time: “After six and a half years, it’s finally time to put the remote control down and say goodbye to the Gogglebox.

“I loved every minute and am immensely grateful to Channel 4 and Studio Lambert for allowing me to be part of the show.”

He also said, “But new opportunities are knocking on the door and it is time to explore them. I’m looking forward to enjoying the show as a spectator and not having to worry about saying something stupid. “

Tom has since been replaced by his sister Vanessa, who made her show debut in March.
