Tom Parker gets emotional at The Wanted charity show

The Wanted’s Tom Parker broke down in tears while performing on stage at a charity gig on Monday night.

The 33-year-old singer was overcome with emotion at Inside My Head – The Concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London as he reunited with his former bandmates Max George, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness and Siva Kaneswaran.

The night was organised by Tom following his stage 4 glioblastoma diagnosis – a type of cancer that starts in the brain – with the musician declaring all proceeds will be split between Stand Up To Cancer and The National Brain Appeal.

During the gig, which was hosted by Capital’s Roman Kemp and Sonny Jay, Tom was seen wiping away tears from his eyes while his bandmate Siva comforted him in front of the crowd.

After the night came to an end, he took to Twitter and reacted to a sweet video of fans chanting ‘We Love Tom’ outside the venue.

“Wow, what a night,” he penned.

“Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

“Sorry I couldn’t come out and see you all [because of] Covid but thank you all for the support. It means so much.”

He later took to his Instagram Stories to share his gratitude at the turnout.

Tom told his fans he arrived home at 1.50am, adding: “I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone involved.

“From the audience, all the fans, all the crew, everyone involved man.

“Everyone’s just been amazing so thank you so much.”

Highlights from the night will be featured in Tom’s upcoming Channel 4 documentary, so his followers can re-live the moment.

In recent weeks, the chart-topper opened up on refusing to let cancer dominate his life, almost a year after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

Speaking on BBC Breakfast, the Glad You Came hitmaker said: “It’s not that I’m ignoring cancer but I just don’t want to pay it any attention.

“The more attention you pay it, the more it consumes your life and I don’t want to consume my life.

“I’ve got kids, I’ve got family. So I just try and just ignore it as much as possible.”

Tom has been open about positive outlook for the future and his wife recently discussed their desire to add to their family.

Kelsey told OK! magazine that she and Tom hope to welcome at least two more children to add to their family that includes Aurelia, 17 months, and Bodhi, seven months.

She said: “We are planning for more children – I’ve always wanted a big family and I think we’ll end up with four.

“There’s only a 16-month age gap between our two children and it’s definitely been a lot, even without taking into account our circumstances, so I won’t be having children that close in age again – doing that once was enough.”
