The Wanted star Tom Parker’s funeral is taking place

The funeral of The Wanted star Tom Parker is on Wednesday and fans are gathering outside to pay their respects.

The singer died last month aged 33 surrounded by his family and bandmates, 17 months after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.

Close friends and family are expected to attend the private service in Queensway, Petts Wood, south-east London, on Wednesday morning.

Parker’s widow Kelsey has invited fans to line the path to the church, where they can watch the service outside on big screens.

She also created a GoFundMe page to “keep Tom’s memory alive forever” by donating to charity instead of sending flowers and cards.

The site surpassed its goal of £5,000 in the first 12 hours and has received over £54,000 in donations so far.

Earlier this month, Kelsey thanked everyone who has donated to the fund for their “heartwarming messages” which she says have “really shed a light on what a legend my Tom is” and highlighted his achievements over the past 18 years months of his life.

The couple married in 2018 and had a daughter, Aurelia Rose, in 2019 and a son, Bodhi, in October last year.

Parker announced in October 2020 that he had been diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma and had started radiation and chemotherapy.

Despite his diagnosis, he had appeared on stage with his bandmates as part of their much-delayed reunion tour in the weeks leading up to his death.
