Tom Parker‘s fans have been left in tears after seeing him perform live for Strictly The Real Full Monty and give a health update.

The 33 year old was diagnosed with grade four glioblastoma in October 2020, exclusively telling OK! at the time that it was “the worst case scenario”.

Since then, he’s gone through 30 rounds of chemotherapy and another 30 of radiotherapy. Thankfully, the treatment has been working and The Wanted star shared it’s going according to plan.

The singer has now taken to the stage at the event, that aims to raise awareness for vital cancer checks, to perform the band’s hit song Glad You Came.

Following the show, he and the band sat down with Ashley Banjo, 33, to speak about everything from their comeback to Tom’s cancer battle.

When asked about his journey, Tom explained: “Obviously I did this show two years ago and I didn’t think I’d be two years down the line and have cancer, but here we are.”

The star, who recently recalled how he was one his own when he received the devastating news of his cancer, added: “But we’re doing it for a good cause and everyone is here for a good purpose.”
