Parker's brain tumour battle

The Wanted star Tom Parker is suffering with memory loss due to his brain tumour treatment.

The British singer was diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma and as a result of the chemotherapy and radiotherapy he is receiving, he has been struggling with his memory.

Speaking in a video posted on Instagram, he said: "As some of you know, I have been through chemo and radio, haven't I? Which was pretty god-d**n brutal, but some of the side effects from the chemo and radio are you get bad memory loss.

"Mine was already bad, wasn't it? But it's the weirdest thing because like, I'll go to her (wife Kelsey), 'What did I just do?' But I can remember stuff like this. What have we got? A Heart of Te Fiti (ancient gem featured in Disney's Moana movie) for Christmas? How do you remember that? Stupid."

The couple, parents to one-year-old daughter Aurelia and newborn son Bodhi, shared the heartbreaking news of Tom's terminal health crisis on Instagram in October, when they vowed to "fight this all the way" by raising awareness and researching the treatments available.
