Tom first revealed his diagnosis in October last year and just three months later, in January, the singer shared that his stage 4 brain tumour had "significantly reduced".

Last month, the father-of-two broke down as he opened up about his terminal diagnosis during an emotional Channel 4 film for Stand Up To Cancer, Tom Parker: Inside My Head.

During the 87-minute documentary, the singer also revealed he has suffered from short-term memory loss and spent nearly three months in bed solidly.

Growing emotional as he spoke about his prognosis, Tom said: "It's so hard to think about the future, I don't want to know.

"I don't think you know how you feel about death until you're faced with it. Am I going to die? That's the most important question... I want to stick around - and be the best version I can!"

He later added: "I don't want people to treat me different just because I've got something, I think that was always on my mind."

He continued: "I do feel like I'm in a much stronger place, but it's so hard to think about the future. Do you know what I mean? I genuinely don't know what it holds anymore."
