Goggleboxs Tom Malone fuels romance rumours with Saffron Barker

Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jr has fuelled rumours of a romance with Strictly's Saffron Barker after the pair appeared in Grease-style snaps on social media.

Former Strictly Come Dancing star Saffron, 22, captioned the pictures of her and Tom, 28, in her Instagram: "Go Grease lightning."

The pair wore matching black leather jackets with "T Birds" emblazoned on the back., clearly referencing the late 1970s hit film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, as Sandy and Danny.

One fan responded with: "Is that the guy from a family on Gogglebox?" to which another replied: "New boyfriend wow."

Another commented on the black leather, saying: "Saffron should be wearing the pink jacket for the pink ladies. Cute though," while a further follower wrote: "Need answer are you two an item WHAT ??? If so it's great."

Two other fans took the more direct approach, with one penning: "You look amazing," and other simply asking: "Couple?"

Fans of cult musical movie Grease love the film for its catchy tunes, tasty costumes and the clash between Sandra Dee's cutesy ways and laddish Danny's too-cool-for-school attitude.

Last year (2022), former Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jr told fans he had been diagnosed with autism after "always feeling a bit different".

The star, who quit the Channel 4 show the previous year – while his dad Tom Sr, mum Julie, brother Shaun and sister Vanessa continued – explained on Instagram that the diagnosis "made sense" – but was also something he was having to learn about.

He said: "I don't normally do very personal posts like this, but I thought this one was important".

Saffron paid her own tribute to late Grease legend Olivia Newton-John by dressing up as a smoking-hot Sandy for New Year's Eve.

Actress, singer and activist Olivia died of cancer in August at the age of 73 and, with December 31 the traditional date to remember those who have passed away during the year, Brighton Tou-Tuber Saffron's celebration of her most-famous movie character wowed her 1.8million followers on Instagram.

Saffron, who finished sixth in the 2019 series of Strictly with partner AJ Pritchard wore the same sexy outfit that Sandy slips into during the final scene of the hit movie.
