What do the Malones do for work?
When they’re not filming for Gogglebox, the Malone family has normal, day-to-day jobs like the rest of us.
Papa Tom Senior is a truck driver. Mother Julie used to work as a receptionist in a dance studio.
Tom Junior also worked there and is a professional dancer.
Shaun is now a bodybuilder and runs a real estate business. And Vanessa is an NHS nurse. She has three children who sometimes appear on the show
Shaun shares Tom Junior’s passion for performance and is an actor and dancer. He is also a soccer coach.
How much weight has Tom Senior lost?
Both Tom Senior and Julie appear to have lost significant weight.
The pair showed off their remarkably slimmer frames when they performed on TikToks by son Tom Junior last year.
After losing weight through lockdown in the summer of 2020, they seem to have managed to hold their results well into the new year.
Neither of them told us exactly how much they lost.
However, Julie replied to a fan on Instagram that she would still eat candy while filming – but in moderation, of course.
She wrote, “The boys and grandchildren would go crazy if there weren’t any goodies we still have, but in moderation, but that sometimes goes out the window lol lol.”
When is Gogglebox next time?
