"Thank you to everyone who has supported in his care throughout. He fought until the very end."

The star was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour in 2020 and given just 18 months to live.

But brave Tom beat the odds after undergoing several gruelling rounds of chemotherapy and 30 radiotherapy sessions.

Just last week Tom announced he had written a heartbreaking book about his battle.

He told fans: "My book is not about dying: It's a book about living. It's a book about finding hope in whatever situation you're dealt, and living your best life no matter what."

Tom revealed in October 2020 that he had an inoperable stage 4 glioblastoma – which doctors described as “the worst case scenario”.

The star had been undergoing treatment in Spain that meant he was forced to pull out of the start of the boyband's UK tour.

But he did make an appearance at the later dates where he performed while sitting on a throne.

Nathan, 28, told the crowd: "Give it up for Tom Parker" as the crowd erupted in rapturous applause.
