The Wanted Singer Tom Parker Dies Aged 33

By Adelaide,

The Wanted star Tom Parker has died at the age of 33 after being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

In October 2020, Parker announced that he’d been diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain tumor. He received the diagnosis after experiencing two seizures.

Later, in January 2021, he said the size of the tumor had been significantly reduced.

Parker was one of the singers of The Wanted, a band best known for their 2011 hit “Glad You Came.” The group had recently announced a reunion tour and a greatest hits album. At a recent show in the UK, Parker appeared onstage with the band in a wheelchair.

The group took to their Instagram to send a message with a photo of Tom.

His wife Kelsey Hardwick wrote on Instagram: “Our hearts are broken.” The pair had two young children together.

Earlier in March, Parker announced he’d written a book “about finding hope in whatever situation you’re dealt,” set to publish in July
