Max George of The Wanted said the death of his friend Tom Parker left a “huge hole in his life” in a touching tribute.

Tom, 33, tragically died on Wednesday following a battle with cancer after being diagnosed with a brain tumor in October 2020.

His untimely death sent shockwaves through his family, friends and those closest to him, including his bandmate Max George.

Sharing his grief on Instagram, he penned a poignant message addressed directly to his late friend.

Max wrote: “Tom, my brother, my boy, my bandmate, my best mate… You have lit up so many lives around the world but I can only speak on my behalf. From the minute I met you I knew this was going to be a special chapter in my life. I was right.”

He later elaborates on their time together on stage and how he was with him when he met his future wife Kelsey.

He added: “We’ve done everything together, some amazing things, some outrageous things. I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished as bandmates and as brothers. I’m also proud that I was there the night you met Kels and you, “you like her don’t you?” to which you replied, “bro, like you can’t believe it.” You two are really like Peas and carrots.

During the tribute, he praised his pal for his bravery, likening him to a rampant “lion” for his fight and bravery shown through his cancer treatment.

He continued, “Thank you for choosing me as your friend. It was an honor from day one. I am so thankful that I was with you to the end. The courage and dignity I have experienced over the past few months has surpassed the lion I already knew it was you.

“The huge hole that is being left in my life now will be there forever, but I know your spirit will live on through your two beautiful babies, your wonderful wife, our music, your fans and in my heart.

“I’m heartbroken beyond words right now and I can’t even begin to imagine what the future holds without you, but whatever I do going forward, even on my darkest days, I can always smile and say, ‘I have the stage with Tom shared Parker’.

“I will miss you so much. i love you buddy Always. George.”
