BOLTON pop star Tom Parker is doing “amazingly well” after being diagnosed with a brain tumour, says The Wanted's bandmate Max George.

Tom, aged 33, from Tonge Moor, revealed in October last year that he had been diagnosed with a tumour which was “inoperable” and “terminal” and recently announced a charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall in aid of Stand Up To Cancer and The National Brain appeal.

Appearing on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Max, 32, said he was looking forward to sitting “front row” at the event on September 20.

“He’s got some great acts on. I know Becky Hill is doing it, McFly, KSI. I will hopefully be front row there watching,” he said.

“Of course, it was a massive shock but honestly he is doing amazingly well. He is tackling it with everything and his wife Kelsey.

Asked about Parker’s optimism, former Bolton School pupil Max, added: “That’s just him. That’s just the way he is with everything. And this is no different, unbelievably. Tom just gets on with everything.”

In January, Tom announced that there had been a “significant reduction” in the size of the tumour and that he was “responding well to treatment”.

He has been married to Kelsey Hardwick since 2018 and they welcomed their son, Bodhi, in October last year, joining their daughter, Aurelia Rose, born in 2019.

Former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Max also addressed the chances of a The Wanted reunion, but suggested it would be hard to get the five members together.

He said: “I have always wanted to and they know that. I say that every time I go on radio and TV. So I think they are pretty aware of that.

“If you are watching, boys: let’s sort it out. I would love to, I would. But the boys are all over the world so I really don’t know.”

Boy band The Wanted formed in 2009, with Tom Parker, Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Nathan Sykes and Jay McGuiness.
