Kelsey Parker says she'll never be the same after trauma of losing husband Tom
Kelsey said the trauma she has been through is 'beyond anything anyone could imagine' and revealed it has changed her
Tom Parker’s wife Kelsey has said she’s never going to be who she was before after losing her husband to cancer.
The Wanted star and father-of-two died this year at the age of 33, after battling an inoperable brain tumour.
Since his death, Kelsey has made a TV show about grief, entitled Kelsey Parker: Life After Tom, which she has said has been therapeutic for her.

In the latest instalment, she said the trauma was “beyond anything anyone could imagine”.
“Of course I'm not OK,” said Kelsey, 32.
“Like I say, I’m never going to be OK am I?
“I'm never going to be the Kelsey that I was two years ago and that's just it. I am never going to be that person again.
“Because my life has changed so dramatically and I have been through the biggest thing.”
“The trauma I have suffered is beyond anything that anyone could imagine,” she added.
Singer Tom was diagnosed with inoperable stage-four glioblastoma in 2020, while Kelsey was pregnant with their son Bodhi.
The couple also had daughter Aurelia, who was born in 2019.
He documented his battle with his fans on social media and had been determined to beat the odds.
However, in March, Kelsey posted a message on Instagram saying that the star had passed away peacefully with his family at his side.
Kelsey’s TV show takes an unflinching look at the reality of bereavement and she recently said that it was the “best thing” that she has done.

“Because it has actually been therapy for me,” she said earlier this year on Good Morning Britain.
"It has massively helped me.”
