Gogglebox's Malone family introduced three new members to Channel 4 viewers on Friday, with their grandchildren making a special appearance.

In honour of Tom Malone Senior's birthday, his son Shaun, daughter Vanessa, and grandchildren rallied around the lorry driver to sing him Happy Birthday.

A customised birthday cake was placed on the coffee table, in place of the Malones' signature dishes of buns and biscuits.

The grandkids sang to their grandpa, before helping Tom Sr to blow out the candles on his birthday cake as part of the family ‘do.

Watching from home, viewers took to their keyboards to wish Tom Sr a happy birthday, thrilled he got to spend the day with his extended family.

"Happy Birthday Pappa Malone," one viewer penned.

"Gorgeous grandchildren! #gogglebox," wrote a second, and a third exclaimed: "Happy Birthday! Tom Snr #Gogglebox."

Vanessa, who works for the NHS as a critical care nurse, has three little ones – Saoirse, Brogan and Harley.

Living at home with Tom and Julie, the three school kids are close with their grandparents, with Vanessa previously thanking her parents for their help during the pandemic.

"Always smiling with Grandad. We are so lucky to live with my parents at a time like this," she wrote on social media.

"Being a single mum who is a critical care nurse I would have really struggled to continue working during this pandemic had it not been for my parents looking after the rascals for me."

Her brother Tom, who recently left the show to move in with his model girlfriend Bryony, also regularly shares snaps with his nieces and nephews on social media.

When Harley was christened, he shared snaps from the day, writing: "Some pictures from my niece Saoirse's birthday (very happy with her ballerina necklace), and from my nephew Harley Scott's Christening."

Shaun also recently welcomed his first baby, with his partner Jade giving birth to son Louis Malone in July of last year.

"Super happy to announce the birth of my son Louis Malone," he said at the time.

"Thanks for everyone's interest, mother and baby are both well I couldn't be more proud of my girlfriend I wouldn't be that brave having my belly cut open."

Gogglebox airs on Fridays at 9pm on Channel 4.
