He's undergoing treatment for a brain tumour

The Wanted singer Tom Parker is making use of a wheelchair as he continues his battle against cancer.

But despite his ongoing treatment for an inoperable brain tumour, Tom maintained a star aura by flashing a peace sign as he wore a leather jacket and shades.

Tom was unable to make the first dates of the tour in Glasgow, Newcastle and Leeds at the start of the month as he was in Spain.

But he did appear alongside Max and other bandmates Jay McGuinness, Siva Kaneswaran and Nathan Sykes earlier this week in Bournemouth.

Adoring fans sent Tom and Max their best wishes in the comments section of Max’s Insta post.
