But who is Tom Parker and how can you watch the singer’s documentary from The Wanted this weekend? Here’s all you need to know.

Who is Tom Parker?

Tom Parker is an English singer known for being a member of one of Britain’s greatest boy bands, The Wanted.

The Bolton-born musician took his first steps in music at the age of 16, before auditioning for The X Factor.

He failed the first round, but later dropped out of Manchester Metropolitan University to pursue a career as a professional singer.

The 33-year-old first joined a Take That tribute band, touring the north of England, before joining boy band The Wanted in 2009.

The Wanted took an indefinite hiatus in 2014

The group was extremely popular and performed 10 UK top 10 singles and 3 UK top 10 albums in their five year history.

Since The Wanted took an indefinite hiatus in 2014, Tom has appeared on shows such as Celebrity Masterchef and Channel 4’s The Jump.

He also played the role of Danny Zuko on a UK Grease tour in 2017.

Tom first announced that he was diagnosed with inoperable stage four glioblastoma on October 12, 2020, and has continued to share regular health updates with fans on social media.

He decided to organize the Inside My Head concert after finding out that only 1% of the national cancer research budget is allocated to research into brain tumor treatments.

Tom has seen his tumor shrink with the treatment and recently said he aims to get rid of the cancer by March of next year.

Who is Tom Parker’s wife?

Tom Parker has been married to actress and vlogger Kelsey Hardwick since 2018.

The couple have two children – daughter Aurelia, two, and son Bodhi, 11 months.

Kelsey is best known for her appearances in films such as Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Azkaban, Kidnapped and Legacy, and also has her own fashion store, Kelsey Loves.

When is Tom Parker: Inside My Head on Channel 4?

Tom Parker: Inside My Head will air on Channel 4 and All 4 on Sunday, October 10 at 9 p.m. ET.

The feature-length documentary will follow Tom and Kelsey, showing how they’ve gotten through the months of treatment since her diagnosis.

It will also show Tom hosting the star-studded charity concert Inside My Head.

Tom’s next appearance with The Wanted will be when the group hit the road on their 12-date Greatest Hits Reunion Tour of Britain’s Arena.
