The news came while his wife Kelsey was pregnant with their second child, and the singer had to attend his doctor's appointment alone due to COVID.

He told OK! at the time: "It's stage four glioblastoma and they've said it's terminal. It was a lot to deal with by myself. I still haven't processed it."

Tom then later filmed the documentary Inside My Head, which explained what it was like living with the condition.

Following his passing, the BBC aired his episode of Pointless Celebrities, featuring Tom and Max teaming up together, bringing the episode forward in their schedule with the permission of Tom's family.
