Tom Parker announces plans to release his autobiography this summer.

The Wanted star Tom Parker has revealed that he plans to release an autobiography this summer as he continues his fight against brain cancer.

The 33-year-old was diagnosed with an inoperable grade 4 glioblastoma in July 2020 and has been undergoing treatment in a bid to prolong his life.

Announcing his book in a post on Instagram, he wrote: "Hi, I'm Tom Parker, a lot of you know me as one fifth of The Wanted, but I am also a father, a husband, and a son, that's battling brain cancer.

"My book, coming this July, is not about dying: It's a book about living. It's a book about finding hope in whatever situation you're dealt, and living your best life no matter what.

"It will show you how having faith in hope and daring to dream means you can carry on, against all odds. Pre order your copy now."

Last week Parker and his bandmates wrapped up a brief reunion tour of the UK, eight years after the group disbanded.
