Tom Malone Jr has revealed he and his dad have been temporarily banned from TikTok after posting a comedy video that appears to show them hitting an elderly woman whilst driving.
The 26-year-old took to Instagram to explain why he hasn't been active on the video sharing platform after fans noticed a lack of content.
He first posted the video, which shows his Gogglebox star dad Tom Snr sat behind the wheel of his car with his son sat beside him, on his grid.
An elderly woman is seen cycling before hitting the bonnet of a car in the video, with the clip then being "stitched" to show the two Toms inside the car.

His dad says: "Oh you k**bhead. Jesus Christ, is she off the bonnet?," to which the younger Tom replies: "She's gone, she's gone."
Tom Snr is then seen reversing backwards, warning his son: "Let's get out of here quickly. Don't tell your mum."
He captioned the video: "Enjoy this one (no grans were harmed in the making of this video)."
Tom later addressed his 300,000 followers on his Instagram story, saying: "Just so you know that video got me banned off TikTok for a day so you better enjoy it. It was worth it."
The telly favourite recently revealed he is setting his sights on a stint on Strictly Come Dancing after quitting the Channel 4 show which made him and his family famous.
When speaking about his post-Gogglebox plans, Tom told the Express: "Ideally I'd love to be involved in both dance and TV, to some capacity in the future.

"I'd definitely be interested in doing something in TV still, but that is still kind of attached to dance. Those two things I enjoy a lot, I've danced since I was six."
Admitting he would "love to" take part in Strictly, he added: "If the opportunity came up to go on Strictly as a contestant, I've never done Ballroom in my life, so it'd be interesting to see how as someone who breaks.

"I'm used to dancing upside down, how those two worlds could come together, and, how I could use skills from breaking in Ballroom or if there is even anything you can use from breaking in Ballroom."
He announced he was leaving Gogglebox after six years in February, writing on Instagram: "So after 6 and a half years it's finally time to put down the remote, and to say goodbye to Gogglebox.
