Gogglebox star horrified as racist threatens to throw ACID in his girlfriend’s face | The Sun

A GOGGLEBOX star was left horrified after a racist threatened to throw acid in his girlfriend’s face.

Tom and his girlfriend Bryony have gone from strength to strength, and the star previously opened up to The Sun about them getting married one day.
