The Wanted star Tom Parker has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

The 32-year-old musician took to social media with wife Kelsey to open up about his diagnosis with fans, explaining that he’s undergoing treatment.

He wrote: ‘Hey guys, you know that we’ve both been quiet on social media for a few weeks and it’s time to tell you why.

‘There’s no easy way to say this but I’ve sadly been diagnosed with a Brain Tumour and I’m already undergoing treatment.

‘We decided, after a lot of thought, that rather than hiding away and trying to keep it a secret, we would do one interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in our own way.

‘We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way. We don’t want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options.

‘It’s gonna be a tough battle but with everyone’s love and support we are going to beat this. Tom and Kelsey xxx’

The pair opened up about the diagnosis in OK! Magazine, which was released today, in a joint interview.

‘I’m still in complete shock, it’s so much to take in,’ he said.

‘I knew something wasn’t right, but I never expected it to be this. You never think this will happen to you.’

Kelsey, added: ‘It has been a crazy six weeks. We had an inkling that something was wrong in July, but we never could have imagined it was this.’

The devastating news comes just weeks after Kelsey and Tom, announced they were expecting their second child together.

Their daughter, Aurelia Rose, was born on June 30, 2019.

Their baby boy is due this November.
