Tom Parker’s wife Kelsey announces ‘private celebration of life’ for late star

Tom Parker's wife Kelsey has announced a "private celebration of life" for the late star.

The world was left in shock after The Wanted star passed away at the end of last month after being diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2020

And his devastated wife, Kelsey, who shares children daughter Aurelia and son Bodhi with Tom, took to her Instagram page on Tuesday evening to announce details of his memorial.

Writing in white handwriting against a black backdrop Kelsey, 32, penned: "Thomas Anthony Parker. There will be a private celebration of life on Wednesday 20 April."


Kelsey continued: "We know many of you would like to pay your respects as well, so would love for you to join us in Petts Wood at 10 am.

"It would be beautiful to have everyone line the route as we head to our private service.

"You are then welcome to join us outside the church for the duration where the service will be relayed on screens. Love Kelsey," she wrote.

Kelsey's announcement was showered with support with one person writing: "I, and I know hundreds of others will be there in spirit Kelsey. We will be thinking of him, your family and his friends all day."

Another wrote: "You are an absolute beacon of light. I just know that you feel Tom's love wrapped around you every single day."

A third wrote: "Gosh, you are an amazing and strong woman."

Tom had been receiving treatment for stage four glioblastoma after doctors discovered he had a brain tumour in 2020.

He had been determined to fight until the very end despite being told at the time it was inoperable and that he would only have 12-18 months to live.

Sharing the devastating news on her Instagram page, Tom's wife Kelsey said last week: "It is with the heaviest of hearts that we confirm Tom passed away peacefully earlier today with all of his family by his side.

"Our hearts are broken, Tom was the centre of our world, and we can't imagine life without his infectious smile and energetic presence.

"We are truly thankful for the outpouring of love and support and ask that we all unite to ensure Tom's light continues to shine for his beautiful children," the mum-of-two continued.

"Thank you to everyone who has supported in his care throughout, he fought until the very end. I'm forever proud of you," she added.

Days later, the Wanted fans were left emotional when Tom was given a heart-wrenching tribute at The Grammys on Sunday night, 3 April.
