Kelsey Parker's Sweet Tribute To Tom At His Funeral

Kelsey Parker paid tribute to her late husband Tom Parker in the sweetest way.

Tom, who was a member of the chart-topping boyband The Wanted, died last month aged 33 after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.

His death led to an outpouring of tributes from Tom's family, friends, bandmates and fans from across the world.

At the end of Tom's funeral service at St Francis of Assisi church in Petts Wood, south-east London, his coffin was carried out of the church to The Wanted's hit song Gold Forever.

Kelsey wore a gold jacket, which could be a reference to the song, which has become an anthem for fans and in the days after Tom's death, reached number one the UK iTunes chart.

She also wore a gold hair clip that says Tom.

The couple got married in 2018 and welcomed their daughter, Aurelia Rose, in June 2019 and their son, Bodhi, in October 2020.

During the service, Kelsey revealed the moment the pair met a nightclub before he joined The Wanted and achieved worldwide success.

"I will treasure every memory because life with you was never dull. You were always coming up with songs, new game shows and we all know how much you loved an invention – I bet you were gutted you never made it on Dragons’ Den.

“Marrying you was the best day of my life… soulmates, that’s what we are.”

Fans lined the streets and watched the procession route along Petts Wood high street to pay their respects.

Kelsey asked fans to come along to pay their respects along the route before his friends and family took part in a private service.
