Max George has shared an emotional eulogy to his best friend Tom Parker following the singer's tragic death last week.

The Wanted star died with his wife Kelsey, his family and his four bandmates by his side at the age of just 33 after a battle with an inoperable brain tumour.

Taking to Instagram, George wrote: "Tom, my brother, my boy, my band mate, my best bud.. You lit up so many lives all over the world but I can only speak on behalf of mine.

"From the minute I met you, I knew this was gonna be a special chapter in my life. I was right. We did everything together, some amazing things, some outrageous things. I'm so proud of what we achieved as band mates and as brothers.

"I'm also proud that I was there the night you met Kels. I remember saying to you, 'You like her don't you?'.. to which you replied, 'Bro, like you wouldn't believe'. You two really are like peas and carrots.

"Thank you for choosing me as your friend. It was an honour from day one. I'm so grateful I was with you until the very end. The courage and dignity I have witnessed over the last few months surpassed the lion I already knew you were.

"The huge hole now left in my life will forever be there, but I know your spirit will live on through your two beautiful babies, your wonderful wife, our music, your fans and in my heart.

"I'm heartbroken beyond words right now and I cannot even begin to imagine what the future holds without you, but whatever I do going forward, even on my darkest days, I can always smile and say, 'I shared the stage with Tom Parker'.

"I am going to miss you so much. I love you mate. Always. George."
