Highlighting just how “proud” she is of Tom Sr, she lightheartedly but lovingly praised him as a “superhero”.

Tom was typically deadpan as he spoke, joking he’d swung “SAS-style” from the top of the 173 foot bell tower in Manchester’s Trafford Centre.

They went on to thank those who donated for the fundraising event for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. Supporters have currently pledged over £850.

The Malones thank supporters

“Thanks for your donations,” Julie said.

“Much appreciated,” agreed Tom.

“It means a lot. No matter how big or small your donation, it all adds up,” Julie continued.

Tom, clearly joking, cheekily took the mick out of his wife’s enthusiasm: “Julie’s just sobering up now.”

Julie also included an emotional caption on the post, sharing how family members have been affected by cancer.

Cancer affects everyone in some way, let’s try our best to help!

She wrote: “Thank you, thank you, thank you. Every penny helps.

“We lost a wonderful dad, dad-in-law and our children lost a phenomenal grandad to this horrible disease. Also Tom’s Aunty Kay, a brilliant lady.

“Cancer affects everyone in some way, let’s try our best to help! Thanks again.”
