Brian Kilgallon said he started making the videos “for fun”

On Father’s Day, his son, Jamie, 28, said they started taking Instagram photos and then making TikTok videos.

“I randomly decided to post a video of me teaching him a dance and the video got 700,000 views,” he said.

Brian, a former non league footballer and salesman, said: “I’m getting people tooting their horns at me, saying ‘lollipop man, TikTok’ and it’s brilliant.”

He admitted he had no idea what TikTok was at first, but now believes he will be making videos for the rest of his life.
