Channel 4 Gogglebox’s Tom Malone praised by fans after heartfelt lung cancer message

One of Gogglebox’s most popular families have issued a heartfelt cancer message to fans. The Malones are currently on a break from filming until September – when the show will return to screens.

But the family haven’t been kicking their feet back and relaxing. Instead, they’ve been risking their lives – and it’s all for a good cause.

This month the family will take part in an abseil to raise money for lung cancer sufferers, says the ECHO. What a brilliant bunch.

In a video uploaded on Friday, Julie said to the camera: “Try and guess what I’ve got him doing… What have I got you doing Tom?” Tom explained he will take part in an abseil later this month, in aid of the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

He said: “It’s a bit high but sometimes we need a bit of help with heights don’t we? I’m only a short a**e.” Julie said: “You are”, before asking fans “if they can” to please donate, and Tom added: “Come down and say hello”.

Fans have rushed to commend Tom on his efforts. Carley said “Amazing, good luck”, while Siobhan Crompton said: “I’ve done that! Will be amazing”.

Ellen said: “Brill Tom”, while Susu said: “That’s amazing, well done”. Charlotte said: “Amazing effort, nice one Tom!
