Watch: Tom Parker making documentary about cancer fight

The Wanted star Tom Parker is making a documentary about his tragic fight with terminal brain cancer.

The singer, 32, revealed last year that he had been diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma, an aggressive brain tumour, and has been updating fans about how he is living with the deadly disease on social media.

Now he is set to offer a greater glimpse into his cancer battle by making a documentary for Channel 4.

Announcing the news on Instagram, the father-of-two wrote: "We have some news. For the past few months @being_kelsey and I have been working with the good people at Spungold TV (sic) on a documentary for @channel4 and Stand Up 2 Cancer.

"As well as looking at our story, I've also been meeting some amazing people who are suffering from the same disease and meeting doctors and activists who are trying every day to raise awareness and to fight for more funding for vital research into brain cancer."

The star is also staging a fundraising concert for the Stand Up 2 Cancer campaign.

"I have also decided to stage a fundraising concert, with some great artists, to raise money for @su2cuk and the National Brain Appeal and I'm really excited to tell you all the details very soon," he added.

"It's been an eye opening, and at times, an emotional process but I'm really proud of what we are creating. It's time to raise awareness and increase the money available for research and if I can help do that with this project then I'll be a very happy man!"

Tom shares two young children with his wife Kelsey - Aurelia, almost two, and seven-month-old son Bodhi - who was born shortly after the singer discovered the tumour in his brain.

Speaking to The Mirror about the new documentary, the musician added: "Almost a year ago, my world was turned upside down by my diagnosis. I'm determined to fight the disease and the terrible situation of the chronically low level of research that goes towards finding a cure and treatment for glioblastoma."
