Gogglebox fans praise Tom Malone after wife Julie shares snap from hospital

Gogglebox star Tom Malone has been inundated with praise from fans after his wife Julie shared a snap of the star giving blood from a hospital bed.

The television personality, who heads up the Malone family on Channel 4 telly watching show Gogglebox, posed for a photo at a donation centre on Friday, which was later shared by his proud wife Julie.

Alongside the image, which featured Tom surrounded by hard working NHS staff, she revealed that he had donated platelets and plasma to help those most in need in a caption which read: “Tom giving platelets and plasma today ! @givebloodnhs.”

Fans were quick to praise the star for his kind generosity, with several even revealing that without donations like the one Tom was providing, they would have died, having previously needed transfusions of platelets and plasma in the past.

One person wrote: “Thank you Tom! I lost my Mum 4 years ago to leukaemia. The platelets and blood transfusions she received during her illness gave us an extra 2 years with her. People like you are literally saving lives.”

Another person then added: “Well done Tom. I’ve had a stem cell transplant and was able to use my own cells but many people can’t and they rely on people like yourself to donate so thank you very much.”

Before a third also commented: “Thanks Tom. I have low platelets, when my platelets drop to a certain level, I require a platelet transfusion- without people like you this isn’t possible.”

Flooding the comments section with their own personal stories, countless fans continued to inundate the star with warm wishes and messages of support, with one even trying to get the hashtag #TomsALegend trending on social media.

“I don’t normally comment on posts, just scroll through and double click every now and again but I just had to say thanks. Maybe a few people will see this and wonder what platelets and plasma is which might lead to some more people donating #TomsALegend,” they wrote.

Tom and Julie are best known to fans for their hot-takes on the latest television shows, as part of the regular Gogglebox cast.

Joined by their son Shaun, the family have appeared on the show since 2014.

Initially joined by their other son Tom Malone Jr, he appeared alongside his family on the show for around six years, before departing to pursue other projects in 2021.
