The Wanted's Tom Parker says that he is aiming to be "cancer-free" by next March despite having a terminal brain tumour.

Tom Parker has revealed that he is aiming to be "cancer-free" by March despite having being diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour.

The Wanted singer, 33, received the devastating diagnosis last summer but since then he has undergone six rounds of chemotherapy and 30 rounds of radiotherapy, which have resulted in a "significant" reduction in the size of his tumour.

"You'll always be classed as terminal," he told The Sun ahead of a Channel 4 documentary about his condition on Sunday.

"They give you 12 to 18 months of survival. But that's the general statistics. Everyone we've ­spoken to has been way, way beyond that.

"Now, we're aiming to be cancer free by March. That's the aim. This disease is always there. You might have residual cells but just not active. So, we'll just carry on, just crack on and see where we get to."

Tom Parker: Inside My Head airs Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4.
