Gogglebox fans were left in stitches as Julie Malone almost ended up being ‘scalped’ by her grandson on the show.
The Malone family were joined by their grandson on Friday’s episode, who was concerned about the crumbs he was making with his bag of crisps.
The toddler decided to clean up after himself, and Tom Sr encouraged him to ‘Hoover grandma’ to clean up the mess.
However, as soon as the powerful vacuum cleaner was given to the little lad, chaos ensued as he managed to suck up half of her hair in the process.
Julie screamed: ‘Argh, my hair!’ as the vacuum cleaner whipped her locks up, until Tom Sr leapt up to help.
Once safely free of the Hoover, with most of her hair intact, Julie laughed: ‘He nearly scalped me!’
The toddler stole viewers’ hearts by finding the whole thing hilarious and giggling away like he hadn’t just given nana a very dodgy hairdo by mistake.
Fans tweeted: ‘Ooh Julie’s hair up that hoover! That could’ve been dangerous’ and ‘the quickest I have ever seen Tom move’.
Others added: ‘OhNo mama Malone nearly got hoovered up’ and ‘Gtech couldn’t have paid for better vacuum suction promo’.
One shared the video, commenting: ‘How 2020 is going’.
Some joked that that is why Tom is bald, writing: ‘And now we know what happened to Pa Malone’s hair’ and ‘Now we know where Tom seniors hair went’.
Poor Julie Malone might have a bit of a sore scalp but at least it gave viewers a good laugh – though we reckon they won’t be inviting their adorable grandson to do any more cleaning anytime soon.
Gogglebox airs on Fridays at 9pm on Channel 4.
