Will a faulty TPMS system cause my car to fail the MoT?

Can you tell me if a faulty tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an MoT failure point?

Is the TPMS light illuminated? If so, it can mean a number of things (depending on the car).

The MoT tester will only fail the vehicle if it’s clear that the lamp indicates a TPMS system malfunction and not simply indicating that one or more of the tyre pressures is low.

Is a tyre pressure light showing an MoT failure even if the pressures are correct? Can I just disconnect the light?
There is a fault with my tyre pressure sensor. The tyre pressures are correct but the warning light keeps coming on. Would this fault invalidate the MOT?
Do you have an opinion on tire pressure monitoring kits? If so, do you recommend any particular make?
