The Wanted shared a wonderful tribute to Tom Parker following his funeral on Wednesday.
Watch the tribute below:
The tribute consists of a compilation of behind-the-scenes clips and footage from the band's tours, music videos and photoshoots, set to their hit song Gold Forever.
The single, which was released in 2011 in support of Red Nose Day, was played at the end of Parker's funeral service as his coffin was carried out of St Francis of Assisi church in Petts Wood, south-east London.
Fans left their tributes in the comments section, with one sharing: “He will always be an inspiration to all of us.”
While a second Instagram user left the message: "My five boys, always and forever, love you endlessly.”
A third fan said they were 'crying' and added: "I wasn’t ready for this. He was the most beautiful soul, ever. Sending my love to all of you boys, five brothers always. Fly high Tom.”
Another supporter of the band penned: “Rest in peace, power and love, our golden star, warrior and amazing Tommy boy, love you forever and more.”
Tom 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.
The Wanted's Max George paid tribute to his bandmate and "brother" Tom Parker by delivering a eulogy at his funeral.
The 33-year-old told attendees: “I could actually hear him saying, ‘It’s about time’, as he carried us for the last 12 years.
“Tom was always a brother, he made such an impact from the start. His love for music and striving for success outmatched all of us."
Tom's widow, Kelsey Parker, wore a gold jacket and a gold hair clip that says "Tom". She encouraged fans to attend the procession along Petts Wood High Street.
The couple got married in 2018 and welcomed their daughter, Aurelia Rose, in June 2019 and their son, Bodhi, in October 2020.
