So, here’s everything you need to know about Tom’s very exciting job…
Is Tom Malone from Gogglebox a professional dancer?
Yes. Tom Malone has previously opened up about being a professional dancer.
After his dad tried to show off his best moves on the show, Tom exclaimed that he can't understand how he became a professional dancer when his parents have absolutely no rhythm.
In a blog post shared three years ago, Tom also opened up about his career, explaining he does everything from ballet and tap to locking and house, but his “style of choice” is breakdancing.
He was also part of a dance crew called ‘Ruff Diamond’ who came runners up on Sky1's Got To Dance in 2013, although Tom didn't actually appear on the show with them at the time.
