The Wanted first discussed getting back together in early 2020 to celebrate their 10thanniversary but the global pandemic got in the way. Then came the devastating and shocking news that one of the boys, Tom Parker, had been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Tom, in his characteristically no-nonsense manner, decided to turn a personal tragedy into something more positive and set out to make a documentary for Channel 4 and Stand Up To Cancer titled ‘Tom Parker – Inside My Head’ both to raise awareness of the tell-tale signs of the disease and to explore new treatments and research.
