Tom Parker’s widow Kelsey said she misses him “immensely” as she marked their fourth wedding anniversary.

The Wanted singer died at the age of 33, after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour in 2020.

The couple met as teenagers and married in 2018 before having two children, Aurelia and Bodhi.

On their fourth wedding anniversary, 32-year-old Kelsey shared a video from their wedding day on Instagram, with the caption: “Never did I ever think this is how I’d be celebrating our 4 year wedding anniversary Tom.

“Most people wish to have their wedding day again, I’d settle for a hug.

She continued: “Miss you immensely and it’s not getting easier but as I promised I would, I’m here, staying positive, toasting you and us and staying grateful for the time we had.

“Our wedding day truly was the best day of my life and I’m holding on to every memory of it. Love you Tom. Thank you for choosing me to be Mrs Parker. Positive Parkers Forever.”

Kelsey has previously opened up about her grief following her husband’s death.

Speaking on ITV’s Loose Women in her first TV interview since his death, she said: “I’m just getting through each day.

“I have the kids. I have to wake up each day, I have to get on with it, just trying to be as strong as possible in a really difficult situation and time for us all.”

Speaking about her 13-year relationship with Tom, she continued: “The fact I met Tom at 19 in a really tough industry. We were soulmates, we loved each other so much, he was my best friend.

“I found the love of my life at the age of 19 and I’ve spent all these years with him. How lucky am I to say I found love? I was so in love with him.”

Kelsey recently announced a charity event to mark what would have been Parker’s 34th birthday on August 4.

Money raised by the “family fun day” on August 7 at Petts Wood Memorial Hall and Gardens will go to the Ahead Of The Game Foundation, a non-profit set up in 2021 to fund rehabilitation for those diagnosed with cancer.

Parker found fame as one of the members of pop band The Wanted, who had such hits as Glad You Came, and All Time Low.

On April 20, hundreds of fans gathered outside Parker’s funeral in Petts Wood, south-east London to pay their respects to the late singer.

Stars including One Direction’s Liam Payne and Parker’s bandmates from The Wanted were amongst those in attendance.
