Gogglebox star Julie Malone, who spent her summer holidays with family and grandchildren in Quesada, was crowned the ‘Queen’ by her son Tom junior on her birthday.

“Happy birthday to the Queen that raised me – can’t have been easy! Love you mum,” Tom wrote on Instagram.

“Massive Happy Birthday to my Mum! You’re the best,” he added.

Julie, husband Tom, daughter Vanessa and three grandchildren spent time in Spain during August, with visits to the Orihuela Costa and Torrevieja, ahead of filming the new Gogglebox C4 series this month.
