Tom Parker has revealed he and his wife Kelsey have been working on a documentary about his cancer battle.

In October last year, the 32-year old singer shared the heartbreaking news that he had been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour.

The former The Wanted star has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy ever since, and he has vowed to fight until the end.

Tom, who shares children with his wife Kelsey, is now making a documentary about his battle with cancer which will air on Channel 4 later this year.

The eye-opening and heartwrenching show will focus on the former boyband singer, trying to organise a major fundraising concert in a bid to leave a positive legacy behind.

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, the much-loved star revealed he will be sharing his story in an ‘emotional’ documentary.

The I’m Glad You Came hitmaker penned: “Almost a year ago, my world was turned upside down by my diagnosis.

“It’s been an emotional few months for me and my family. But I’m determined to both fight the disease and the terrible situation of the chronically low level of research that goes towards finding a cure and treatment for glioblastoma.

“In this documentary, as well as exploring the medical and human aspects of this disease, I am determined to raise awareness and raise as much money as we can through the concert to help advance crucial cancer research and develop new treatments.”

Tom’s show, which has yet to be named, is currently in the midst of production as cameras enter his home with Kelsey, their daughter Aurelia, two and their seven-month-old son Bodhi.

The emotional documentary is in line with Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer appeal – the joint national fundraising campaign with Cancer Research UK.

All the proceeds from the star-studded Royal Albert Hall concert will be split between the Stand Up To Cancer and The National Brain Appeal.

Last month, Tom’s beloved wife Kelsey shared a positive update on the singer’s battle as she revealed Tom’s brain tumour has reduced in size after chemo and radiotherapy.

Kelsey shared her ‘joy and relief after medical professionals informed her that Tom has had a 'significant reduction' in the size of his tumour.

Writing in New! magazine, the brave wife, penned: "Tom was recently told he’d had a 'significant reduction' in the size of the tumour.

"I couldn’t believe it; I was asking him if those were the exact words the doctor had said. We just stood in our bedroom crying tears of joy and relief.

"We are looking to our future with nothing but positivity. Tom will always be my Tom and we’ll get through it together like we always do."
