[ENT] The Wanted’s Tom Parker shares devastating terminal brain tumour diagnosis

The Wanted star Tom Parker has shared his devastation after being diagnosed with a terminal brain cancer.

The dad-of-one says it is inoperable.

He told OK! Magazine : “I’m still in complete shock, it’s so much to take in.”

His wife Kelsey, with whom he shares 16-month-old daughter Aurelia, 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.”

Tom, who said his diagnosis didn’t feel real, added: “I knew something wasn’t right, but I never expected it to be this. You never think this will happen to you.”

Tom, who is expecting his second child with Kelsey, took to Instagram this morning to share the tragic news with his fans.

“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”
