Tom, who moved back in with his parents this year to film the most recent series, told the publication: "If the opportunity was good enough then yeah 100 per cent, [one of the family] would leave but I think the rest of [them] would be able to stay on Gogglebox."

The dancer also revealed whether the move would mean his girlfriend making her debut on Gogglebox, but sadly fans will have to wait until that happens: "Because of contracts and stuff, unfortunately, you won't see my girlfriend on the show."

Tom and Bryona have been dating since June

Tom and his girlfriend are popular on various social media platforms, including Tik Tok thanks to his impressive moves, but it was on Instagram that Tom got his followers talking recently.

The dancer was forced to explain why he wears a wedding ring during a recent live Q&A on his Instagram stories, after many were wondering if he and Bryony had tied the knot. One user asked: "Is that a wedding ring you wear?" Tom then confirmed it is a wedding ring, but it is not his wedding ring.

Taking the gold band off of the index finger of his left hand, Tom explained: "I wear it every day. It goes everywhere with me. My most prized possession." He finished off the video clip by reiterating: "It's not my wedding ring, it's my grandad's." Tom's girlfriend Bryony is a model based in Leeds and the couple have been dating since June.
