    Speaking to the camera, Tom said: ‘Hi all. It’s the morning after the documentary. We just want to say a massive thank you for tuning in.

    ‘Yeah, it was an emotional watch. But I watched it. I didn’t know whether I was going to or not but I did it. I was proud of watching it.’ 

    Kelsey agreed that it had been emotional, adding: ‘Yeah look my eyes are still puffy! Thank you for all your love, your messages and support. I was going to get back to you all. You’ve been amazing.’

    Tom added: ‘Yes you have. Here’s to the future… and getting better!’

    With The Wanted’s song I’ll Be Your Strength playing over the image, she wrote: ‘I’ll be your strength always.’ 

    The couple wed in 2018 and share two-year-old Aurelia Rose and 12-month-old son Bodhi, who were both seen in Tom’s latest Instagram video.  

    During the Inside My Head documentary, Tom – who was diagnosed with brain cancer last year – broke down in tears as he spoke frankly about his terminal brain tumour. 

    The singer also revealed he has suffered from short-term memory loss, spent nearly three months in bed solidly, and looked at his cancer treatment plan.

    Growing emotional as he spoke about his prognosis, Tom said: ‘It’s so hard to think about the future, I don’t want to know.  

    ‘I don’t think you know how you feel about death until you’re faced with it. Am I going to die? That’s the most important question… I want to stick around – and be the best version I can!’    

    The documentary also saw Tom reunite with The Wanted for a Stand Up To Cancer performance.

    Yet it was touch and go as to whether he’d be able to perform with his bandmates Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness and Nathan Sykes due to his condition.

    Tom was diagnosed with glioblastoma last year, which is inoperable, and has undergone radiotherapy. 

    In the show, he learnt that the tumour had shrunk – but was left unsure of what the future holds for him.

    ‘I don’t want people to treat me different just because I’ve got something, I think that was always on my mind,’ he said. 

    He continued: ‘I do feel like I’m in a much stronger place, but it’s so hard to think about the future. Do you know what I mean? I genuinely don’t know what it holds anymore.’

    What is Glioblastoma? 

    Glioblastoma is an aggressive type of cancer that can occur in the brain or spinal cord. 

    It forms from cells called astrocytes that support nerve cells.

    Glioblastoma can occur at any age, but tends to occur more often in older adults.

     It can cause worsening headaches, nausea, vomiting and seizures. 

    Glioblastoma, also known as glioblastoma multiforme, can be very difficult to treat and a cure is often not possible. 

    Treatments may slow progression of the cancer and reduce signs and symptoms.
