‘King of Leeds’ TikTok star flees UK after getting dumped over Wetherspoons joke

A TikTok star has fled to Thailand to drink away his break-up after he was dumped by his girlfriend for causing havoc in Wetherspoons.

Tom Birchy, who has labelled himself as the "Kind of Leeds", told his 170,00 followers how he managed to get £2000 worth of free food and drink at The Golden Beam in Headingley.

The social media prankster decided to share his table number online, which many of his fans saw and decided to order on his behalf.

But Tom claims the staff couldn't meet the rapid demand and slammed the "scamming" staff for not refunding his supporters for the food that he didn't receive.

The joker, who used to work in the Wetherspoons in Leeds train station, said he was subsequently barred from the Headingley branch, reports Leeds Live.

Wetherspoons have now confirmed they will be refunding the money to customers who ordered Tom items which never arrived.

Wetherspoons said: "Refunds could not be processed on the day are currently being processed for the food and drink not delivered. We are working through the refunds as quickly as we can but due to the volume, there may be some delay."

What's more, after the incident, Birchy's TikTok account was banned and deleted and he was removed from Leeds Student Group on Facebook. Adding insult to injury, a few days later when he was allowed back on the app, he also informed followers that he was dumped by his girlfriend.

The TikToker has now raked in over eight million likes on his channel in a matter of days. Just a short few days after going viral Tom is now in Thailand and has been sharing what he has been up to.

He first got a 12 hour flight out from Gatwick, and shared the lack of legroom and no in flight entertainment.

He is staying in a hostel with five friends where there is a large pool.

The partygoer has also been heading to street parties which have been "shut down" by the police and shared what happened when he visited a strip club.
