Gogglebox's Tom Malone Jr Hits Back At Trolls Sending Racist Abuse To His Girlfriend

Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jr has hit back at vile trolls who have been sending racist abuse to his girlfriend, Bryony Briscoe.

Speaking to his Instagram followers in a Q&A, professional dancer Tom explained both he and Bryony have received hateful messages and comments online.

"They are always behind a fake account and they just post like the usual stupid things like monkey emojis that clearly aren't original," he said.

Bryony also added: "I also get people telling me not to date outside my race.

"But, they don't realise that I am mixed race and then when they realise that it is 'Well, you are what your father is' and I become white, so what is it?"

Offering advice to others, Tom urged followers to ignore the hate and simply be happy.

"At the end of the day just be with who you wanna be with and be happy because these people aren't even brave enough to have their own name or faces on their account, so just p**s them off even more by being happy because that's the biggest middle finger," he said.

Tom and Bryony have been together for just over seven months, and have now moved in together! Tom posted a snap earlier in the month featuring him and Bryony toasting to a new home.

"To new a home and new beginnings," he wrote. Meanwhile Bryony added: "Home is wherever you are.
Cheers to us and new beginnings." So cute!

It's expected Tom will return to his family home for future Gogglebox filming.


Tom also addressed why Bryony has never appeared on the show, explaining: "Because of contracts and stuff, unfortunately, you won't see my girlfriend on the show.

"I reckon because of contracts and stuff it won't be able to happen, but you can always ask them."

We would LOVE to see Bryony on the Gogglebox sofa!
