Ex Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jr was banned from TikTok for 24 hours after getting in trouble for a skit involving his dad.
The dancer, who left the long-running Channel 4 series in February, stitched a video in which an elderly woman was seen riding a bike directly into a car, throwing herself onto the bonnet.
Adding onto the bizarre scene, Tom Jr and Tom Snr were seen pretending it was their car she hit, coming to a screeching halt after colliding with her.
Tom Snr, who’s driving, then yells: ‘Oh you k***head. Jesus Christ. Is she off the bonnet?’
‘She’s gone. She’s gone,’ Tom Jr responds, as his dad swiftly puts the car into reverse.
‘Let’s get out of here mate quickly,’ Tom Snr says. ‘Don’t tell your mum!’

While the microvideo site pulled the clip down, Tom Jr then reuploaded it to Twitter and Instagram, and joked: ‘I got a 24 hour ban on [TikTok] for this video. So I hope you guys enjoy it.’
He added on Insta that ‘no grans were harmed in the making of the video’.
Well… that’s a relief!

The Malones have been long-time favourites on the Channel 4 show, but Tom stepped back from his position on the sofa in February after moving in with his girlfriend, Briony Briscoe.
Setting up a home of their own, the pro dancer pair have since been using TikTok to share dance routines and sketches.
This series, Tom’s sister Vanessa was seen taking his spot on the sofa for the first time, having previously hidden from the limelight.
They also have another brother, Lee, who has declined to join Tom Sr, mum Julie, and brother Shaun as part of the series.
Gogglebox airs Fridays at 9pm on Channel 4.
