When asked if they've received a prognosis, Kelsey responded, 'We didn’t ask for one.'

'I said that for Tom’s state of mind, and who he is as a person, that would not be good for him.'

'He would literally sit here and count down the days and not live his life.'

Tom said his The Wanted bandmates, 'were as shocked as we were.'

'Jay has been round to see us a few times since we got the news and is reading up on everything he can and Max was here last week.'

'Siva and Nathan obviously live a lot further away, but all four of the boys have been texting regularly and sending through different articles and possible treatments and therapies that they’re all reading about.'

We're sending Tom and his family all our love.
