The Wanted star Tom Parker has learned his brain tumour is "under control".

The 33-year-old singer announced in October last year that he had been diagnosed with a stage four glioblastoma - an inoperable brain tumour - and he has since documented his health battle with his fans on social media.

And on Wednesday, the star shared a positive update beside a photo of him and his wife Kelsey with their two children, Aurelia and Bodhi.

"I'm sat here with tears in my eyes as I tell you. We've got my brain tumour under control," he wrote in the caption. "We had the results from my latest scan...and I'm delighted to say it is STABLE. (crying and smiling emojis) Such a mix of emotions. We couldn't ask for any more really at this point; a year or so into this journey. Honestly over the moon. We can sleep a little easier tonight. Thank you for all your love and support over the last 12+ months. Love from Me, Kelsey, Aurelia & Bo."

Tom was put on the waiting list for an MRI scan after suffering a seizure in July last year, and six weeks later, he suffered a more serious seizure and was rushed to hospital, where he received his devastating diagnosis.

The singer, who is making a documentary with Channel 4 about his health battle, revealed in January this year that there had been a "significant reduction" in the size of his tumour.

He staged a fundraising concert for Stand Up to Cancer at London's Royal Albert Hall in September and it featured his first performance with his The Wanted bandmates Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, and Nathan Sykes since they went on hiatus in 2014.
