The Wanted's Max George and Siva Kaneswaran have thrilled their fans by revealing that they will be reunited on stage later this year.

In the caption, he explained there would be a mini Wanted reunion, saying: "Myself and Siva can’t wait for this! Our first time in India.. Dream come true!"

The Wanted's fans were thrilled with the news, with some imploring Max and Siva to visit their own home countries.

It will mark the first time any of The Wanted band members have performed together since 2022, which is the year Tom Parker, who was one fifth of the band, sadly passed away from brain cancer.

The Wanted launched in 2009, comprising of Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker, Jay McGuiness, and Nathan Sykes. They had some massive hits including Glad You Came and Rule the World.

It doesn't appear that Jay McGuiness and Nathan Sykes are joining Max and Siva in India.

When asked if the band would perform again in a 2022 interview, Jay told "We all feel weird about making those sorts of plans without Tom. We were a gang and went around the world together and it would feel odd to be doing that now as a four."

The band were left devastated when Tom passed away aged 33 in March 2022, leaving behind his wife, Kelsey, and their two young children.

In particular, Max shared a very close bond with Tom as he recently posted a heartbreaking photo and video from his final sleepover with Tom, two years on from his death.

In his post, Max showed a photo of him and Tom sharing a bed on tour, saying: "2 years without you my brother. Still doesn't feel real. Found these today.. our last sleepover. I'll cherish it forever."

He also shared a video of the pair giggling in bed, as he can be heard saying: "Well, it's been a while since we did this. George and Parker sleepover." As he captured Tom laughing beside him, he joked: "Don't hump my leg in the middle of the night like you used to, right. We've got over that."

Fans reacted with heartfelt messages. One fan responded saying: "Still to this day doesn't seem real . He was definitely a legend of his time sending you all my love."
