Max George still texts late The Wanted star Tom Parker

Max George appeared on This Morning today and spoke about his late bandmate Tom Parker’s new book, Hope.

He also revealed he still sends Tom WhatsApp messages. On Tom’s passing, Max told Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, “I’m still trying to process it, I still text him actually.

If I get pictures or stuff that fans have made with him in it or they send a nice message to do with Tom, I’ll WhatsApp it to him.

I just find a bit of comfort in that. The worst bit is when I’m not doing it and I do it accidentally. Sometimes I go to do it and I’m like, ‘Oh no’.”
