Gogglebox’s The Malone family never fail to make us laugh each Friday night as they have their say on the biggest shows on the box.
In fact, husband and wife duo Julie and Tom Senior, alongside their sons Tom Jnr and Shaun, have become some of the hit series’ standout stars.
So Gogglebox fans were left surprised when the couple shared a family snap that featured a secret son they didn’t know about, as he has never appeared on the show.

In a sweet photo posted to their shared Instagram account, Julie and Tom were seen posing alongside eldest son Lee and his fiancé Sarah.
The four enjoyed a family hike to the White Nancy monument in Macclesfield, as the caption read: “What a great walk yesterday ! 12,000 steps before 12 o’clock .The views were amazing.”
Julie and Tom later gave fans another glimpse into their weekend with a picture of the four standing in front of a waterfall soaking up the views.
However Lee, who runs a recruitment firm, isn’t the only member of the Malone family that has chosen not to take part in Gogglebox with the rest of the gang.
The couple also have a daughter called Vanessa who has decided to stay out of the spotlight.
While Shaun and, up until very recently, his brother Tom Jnr have been very familiar faces on our screens.
Tom Jnr recently announced his decision to quit the show after six years, after initially joining the show in 2014.
Breaking the news to his social media following, the 26 year old wrote: “So after 6 and a half years it’s finally time to put down the remote, and to say goodbye to Gogglebox.”
He continued: “I’ve loved every minute and I’m eternally grateful to @channel4 and @studiolambert for allowing me to be a part of the show. But new opportunities are knocking on the door and it’s time to explore them.”
However, the star has already landed his first job – rather aptly as the new ‘Head of Chair Testing’ for home solutions specialists BiGDUG.
The job involves trying, testing and rating a wide range of seating on his social media – and he joked that his experience of sitting on the sofa for Gogglebox filming made him the perfect candidate.
He said: “Some may say that I’m overqualified for the job but it’s all about transferable skills, right? I’ve just left a show sitting on my a*** for a living – and now for my first real brand job I’m going to be sitting on a*** – you can’t really make it up.”
