The Wanted singer Tom Parker has said that he is remaining positive amid his ongoing fight against a terminal brain tumour.

Last summer the 33-year-old was given the devastating news that he had a stage 4 glioblastoma - a currently-incurable condition - and immediately began a course of treatment to fight the disease.

In January Parker revealed that the tumour had shrunk and in an appearance on Friday's Good Morning Britain, he said that he remains optimistic a further eight months down the line.

"Surprisingly, I feel quite good - when you look into treatments and this illness it kind of only ever heads one way, and that's down," he said candidly. "But it really feels like I'm going up, both mentally and physically.

"I feel really positive and healthy, the kids don't really know what's wrong with daddy but when I was really ill on chemotherapy and radiation I couldn't get out of bed. They were tough days and the kids instinctively knew and stayed away - but when I felt better they were there."

Earlier this week The Wanted revealed plans for new music as part of a greatest hits album, as well as a 12-date tour of the UK next March. body check tags ::
