The Wanted bandmate Max George recently revealed that Tom is shocking doctors with how well he is responding to treatment.

Speaking on the Dangerous Dinners podcast, former Strictly Come Dancing star Max, 32, said: "Tom's got something called glioblastoma, which is quite an aggressive form of brain tumour, but he's had his first bout of chemo and radio therapy, which he has responded to unbelievably.

"Doctors were actually shocked by how well he's responded - all of his tumours have been suppressed, so he's in the best hands."

Tom recently updated fans on his health, telling his Instagram followers in January that there had been a "significant reduction" in the size of his tumour.

"I had an MRI scan on Tuesday and my results today were a significant reduction to the tumour and I am responding well to treatment. Everyday I'm keeping on the fight to shrink this b*****d!" he said.

"To everyone on here- your love, light and positivity have inspired me. Every message has not been unnoticed they have given me so much strength. This journey is a rollercoaster that's for sure. Today is a f*****g good day."
