The Wanted fans are still mourning the devastating loss of band member Tom Parker, after the 33-year-old sadly passed away just last week.
Tom had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour back in October 2020 after suffering a series of "unexplained" seizures during the summer months the same year.
In the wake of his death, Tom's bandmate Siva Kaneswaran shared a heartwarming throwback video of Tom to Instagram, writing: "This made me smile ❤️ #tomparker #thewanted #boyband #missyou". You can watch the video here:
In the clip, Tom and Siva are messing around together, pretending to be photographed by paparazzi as bright lights flash in their faces.
When the camera turns, it shows that the flashing is simply coming from two men holding little torches. One of the men jokes: "Can you hurry up? My battery is dying" before all four burst out in a fit of laughter.
Fans were torn between laughing and crying when Siva shared the sweet video.
One commented: "❤️💔😩 don’t think this will ever feel real 😩 his laugh though!😍".
A second added: "thank you for making me smile. sending loads of love❤️".
And a third wrote: "LOOOL 😂😂 made me laugh too. sending lots of love to you all. wish i could give you a big hug 🤍🤍".
"He really was the sweetest man🥺" said another fan. "Hope you’re ok Seev, sending hugs & all my love🤍".
And a fifth commented: "he truly will light up the world forever 💫🧡".
Before his passing, Tom took part in The Wanted's UK tour, which concluded in Liverpool on 18th March.
The singer was able to join his bandmates on stage by performing from a chair. He was supported on the tour by his wife and their children, Aurelia, two, and Bodhi, one.
It was Tom's wife Kelsey who first confirmed the sad news of his passing, writing at the time: "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. Thank you to everyone who has supported in his care throughout, he fought until the very end. I’m forever proud of you ❤️💫✨❤️".
