Tom Parker, a member of the boyband The Wanted, has sadly passed away at the age of 33 following his brain tumour diagnosis.

Tom's wife Kelsey posted on Instagram to announce the news saying, "It is with the heaviest of hearts that we confirm Tom passed away peacefully earlier today with all of his family by his side

"Our hearts are broken, Tom was the centre of our world and we can't imagine life without his infectious smile and energetic presence.

"We are truly thankful for the outpouring of love and support and ask that we all unite to ensure Tom's light continues to shine for his beautiful children.

"Thank you to everyone who has supported in his care throughout, he fought until the very end. I'm forever proud of you."

Parker was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour in October 2020. He went on to create a documentary called "Inside My Head" about his battle with the disease and curated a concert in London to raise funds for Stand Up To Cancer.

The Wanted reformed for the concert after a 7 year hiatus and have since gone on to perform a greatest hits show including Tom wherever they could.
