The Wanted's Max George has broken his silence following the death of his bandmate Tom Parker.
Tom tragically lost his life aged 33 on Wednesday (March 30) after a brutal battle with brain cancer.
The singer left behind his loving wife Kelsey and two young children Bodhi and Aurelia.
Max shared a series of sweet snaps of the pair on Instagram and captioned the post: "Tom, my brother, my boy, my band mate, my best bud. You lit up so many lives all over the world but I can only speak on behalf of mine.
"From the minute I met you, I knew this was gonna be a special chapter in my life. I was right. We did everything together, some amazing things, some outrageous things.
"Im so proud of what we achieved as band mates and as brothers. I’m also proud that I was there the night you met Kels. I remember saying to you, ‘you like her don’t you?’ to which you replied, ‘bro, like you wouldn’t believe’. You two really are like peas and carrots."
He continued: "Thank you for choosing me as your friend. It was an honour from day one. I’m so grateful I was with you until the very end. The courage and dignity I have witnessed over the last few months surpassed the lion I already knew you were.
"The huge hole now left in my life will forever be there, but I know your spirit will live on through your two beautiful babies, your wonderful wife, our music, your fans and in my heart.
"I’m heartbroken beyond words right now and I cannot even begin to imagine what the future holds without you, but whatever I do going forward, even on my darkest days, I can always smile and say, ‘I shared the stage with Tom Parker’.
"I am going to miss you so much. I love you mate. Always. George."
Fans flocked to the comment section to share their love and support, with one writing: "Oh Max, this is beautiful."
Another added: "So very sorry for your loss."
While a third penned: "Max I love you so much."
Bandmate Sival Kaneswaran also posted a tribute to Tom earlier in the week.
He said: "Hey Tom, I hope you’re having a blast up there. I am so grateful that I had a chance to witness your true courage. It has been an absolute pleasure Tommy Boy. Thank you for letting us see you light up the world. Talk to you soon and see you later. Love you brother x."
