Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jr has admitted his future on the hit Channel 4 show is up in the air.

The professional dancer has appeared on the hit series with his Manchester-based family since series four in 2014.

Not only is Tom, 26, is set to move in with his girlfriend Bryony before Christmas but he's confirmed he would be open to leaving Gogglebox for the right opportunity.

Despite make-up artist Bryony wanting to join him on the sofa, Tom says the move is impossible due to contracts.

Tom said: "If the opportunity was good enough then yeah 100% we [one of the family] would leave but I think the rest of us would be able to stay on Gogglebox."
