The 'I'm in my mum's car' star is looking to start testosterone after coming out as trans.
The video which made him become an overnight celebrity was when he hopped in the driver's seat of his mum's car saying: "I'm in my mum's car, broom broom."
Those six seconds changed his life forever.
The combination of his strong Yorkshire accent matched with the randomness of the video, sparked a series of remixes and was viewed on social media millions of times.
Reflecting on the short clip, Tristan previously told LADbible in 2019: "This particular day I was outside, my mum was hanging out the washing as it was a hot summer's day.
"We quickly did the video and I never posted it for a least three or four days on Vine.
"Within a couple of days it went totally crazy, my phone was like on fire. People were messaging me saying I'm all over the internet, my Vine had gone viral.
"I'd since then found out that it reached millions and millions of views all over the world. It was like, crazy."
The social media star has since been touring the country to attend charity events while releasing two charity singles.
2021 was a big year for the Vine star, who came out as trans.
"I am very relieved that I told my parents about who I actually are," he said in an announcement video.
"I am a boy in a girl's body.
"They are very supportive of that.
"They support my decision."
And now in a video posted on 11 June, Tristan revealed he was looking to start testosterone.
He said: "I have to go through blood tests to get on the T so they know what my levels are now.
"I'm going to have to book my blood test and then wait for my blood test to come back to see if I'm healthy enough to take T.
"Fingers crossed I am because I am a healthy man.
"I am this close to getting testosterone, what I need."
Commenting on the announcement, one fan wrote: "Nothing but love and support for you dude! major win for the trans community."
Another added: "You’re an internet legend, and now an icon of the trans community."
A third also said: "I still love you bruv no matter who you are you'll forever be the iconic vine star :)."
"Went down the YouTube rabbit hole with Vine compilations till I ended up here. Happy to see this legend living his best life after all this time," wrote someone else.
According to Mayo Clinic: "Masculinizing hormone therapy typically is used by transgender men and non binary people to produce physical changes in the body that are caused by male hormones during puberty."
