For those who have yet to watch it, Netflix's Queer Eye has proved extremely popular with viewers and critics alike. The show, which is a reboot of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, follows a team of experts as they makeover a new person each episode, helping them with their physical appearance as well as their personal struggles. Viewers were particularly fond of Tom, a 57-year-old man who joked that the group couldn't "fix ugly", and ended up delighted by his transformation. The end of the episode saw him invite his ex-wife, who he revealed he was still in love with, out to a car show, and to see his newly-decorated home, so fans were thrilled when Tom announced on Twitter that the pair had officially reconciled.

Tom loved his makeover 

Sharing a snap of himself with his arm around Abby, Tom wrote: "So happy to say that Abby and I are reunited  we’ve loved each other for many years and want to spend the rest of our lives together!" Fans were quick to respond, with one writing: "I am embarrassed at how happy this announcement makes me!! Congratulations," while another wrote: "Tom, that's such great news.  I loved watching the @QueerEye episode that featured you, and I hoped that Abby and you would find the happiness that you both clearly deserve. All the best from a faraway fan."

However, some fans were left scratching their heads given that Tom had previously said he and Abby didn't get back together after the show, with one writing: "WHAT?!?? BUT A WEEK AGO YOU SAID YOU WEREN’T TOGETHER. I'm so happy for you both but my emotions can't handle this," while another joked: "I've had personal relationships that have sent me on less of a rollercoaster of emotions."
