Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

The Wanted star Tom Parker revealed on Stand Up 2 Cancer that he wasn't allowed anybody around him when he was diagnosed with cancer.

Tom, 33, revealed in October 2020 that he had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour after suffering a seizure just several months earlier.

The dad-of-two was rushed to Norfolk Hospital while his wife Kelsey had to remain at home with their children due to coronavirus restrictions.

During a chat with Davina McCall, Tom recalled the moment consultants gathered around him and "closed the curtain" to reveal the devastating news.

Shortly after Tom's appearance on Stand Up 2 Cancer, fans of The Wanted flooded Twitter as they offered their support to Tom.

"@TomParker just watched your story on #SU2C and my heart goes out to you, you are a brave person for highlighting your #Cancer superhero," said one.

While a second added: "Watching #su2c I've been bubbling like a baby, @TomParker you're my hero."

"@TomParker is an inspiration, he is so unbelievably strong. An absolute hero," tweeted a third.

Before a fourth typed: "@TomParker just watched Inside my Head for #SU2C what a stand up human being."

Tom shared his diagnosis with his Instagram followers, saying: "There's no easy way to say this but I've sadly been diagnosed with a brain tumour and I'm already undergoing treatment.

"We decided, after a lot of thought, that rather than hiding away and trying to keep it a secret, we would do one interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in our own way."

The Lost + Found hitmaker continued: "We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way.

"We don't want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options.

"It's gonna be a tough battle but with everyone's love and support we are going to beat this."
