One of the well known Gogglebox stars of recent years was banned from social media platform TikTok due to a prank video that saw the car he was in 'hit' a cyclist.

Reality star Tom Malone Jr staged the clip where he was in the car with his dad, Tom Malone Snr.

The Manchester dancer can be seen in the passenger seat while Tom Snr is driving the car when a granny on a bike 'hits' the bonnet of their vehicle.

Following the video, Tom was banned by the social media platform with it deemed to be in bad taste.

Speaking to camera, Tom said: "Just so you know that video got me banned off TikTok for a day so you better enjoy it.

"It was worth it."

The video shows both Toms responding to the granny cyclist pretending to be hit by their vehicle.

Tom Senior said: "Oh you k***head.

"Jesus Christ, is she off the bonnet?"

Responding, Tom Jr says "she's gone, she's gone".

"Get the reverse, let's get out of here quickly. Don't tell your mum," Tom Snr says.

He wrote: "Enjoy this one (no grans were harmed in the making of this video)."

Earlier this year Tom Jr revealed he was quitting hit Channel 4 show Gogglebox after finding fame with his dad, mum Julie and brother Shaun.

Of his exit, he wrote: "So after 6 and a half years it’s finally time to put down the remote, and to say goodbye to Gogglebox.

"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."

In the accompanying snap, he held up a cardboard sign which read: "Back on the market. Get at me with any TV work".
