Tom Parker says Max George was ‘in bits’ as he told bandmates about tumour

Tom Parker's The Wanted bandmates have been rushing to his aid to support him after he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

The 32-year-old singer's bandmates Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness and Nathan Sykes have been rallying around him as he faces terminal cancer.

Tom, who's wife Kelsey is currently pregnant with their second child, is undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy in an effort to prolong his life.

During an interview with OK! Magazine, the pair revealed the heartbreaking news that they were informed about six weeks ago.

The pop star first told his bandmate Jay as Kelsey helped him tell the others.

Kelsey told the publication: "Jay spoke to Siva [Kaneswaran] and I spoke to Max [George] and Max spoke to Nathan [Sykes].

"Otherwise Tom would have had to keep reliving the same conversation."

Tom added: "Obviously all the boys were as shocked as we were. They are gutted by the news, but they’ve been incredibly supportive.

"Jay has been round to see us a few times since we got the news and is reading up on everything he can and Max was here last week."

Tom continued: "Siva and Nathan obviously live a lot further away, but all four of the boys have been texting regularly and sending through different articles and possible treatments and therapies that they’re all reading about."

Kelsey praised the lads and dubbed them "amazing" for supporting her hubby through such a challenging time.

Tom went on: "They’ve been so positive, but when I spoke to Max he was in bits. We were in bits together."

The heartbroken couple went on to say that they can't wait to tune into BBC's Strictly Come Dancing this year to watch Max George battle for the Glitterball Trophy.

He is the second star from The Wanted to take part after Jay won the show back in 2015.

Tom said: "Max has a lot to live up to. Jay was wicked, but Max can turn it on. I think he’ll be surprisingly good."

Kelsey and Tom married in 2018 and are parents to 15-month-old daughter Aurelia, and are also currently expecting their second child.
