Tom, 33, relaxed backstage in a large leather armchair with a pillow behind his head as he and pal Max, 33, prepared for the performance.

To gather energy for the evening show in Birmingham, the father-of-two turned to the camera and smiled as his friend filmed him.

“About half an hour until we get to Birmingham – Tommy?” Max could be heard telling the camera before panning to Tom.

“Ready for tonight?” he asked his mate, who softly replied, “Yes, I am,” before encouraging him, “Get in!”

It came shortly after Max revealed that Tom had to use a wheelchair for the shows while continuing his battle with cancer.

Max takes care of his poor friend, whom he calls a “warrior” while they tour together.

He joked last night, “Tom’s on his ninth meal of the day,” as Tom laughed while tucking into his chicken and salad.

He also texted Tom’s wife Kelsey, saying, “Just so you know Kels, the chips won’t be touched.”

Max also shared a sweet snap of the couple lying on the bed and commented that they had a “Netflix night”.

Tom has appeared on stage with bandmates Jay McGuinness, Siva Kaneswaran, Nathan Sykes and Max for their hit song “Glad You Came”.

He missed the start of the group’s Most Wanted Greatest Hits tour last week to undergo landmark treatment for his brain cancer in Spain.

But days later, he made it to the show, nodding and smiling as his bandmates performed alongside him.

The father of two has undergone numerous chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments since being diagnosed with an inoperable tumor in 2020.

He has previously said he was shocked at the lack of treatment and funding for cancer patients in the UK.

A chemotherapy drug called temozolomide has been the standard NHS treatment for glioblastoma patients for 20 years.

Treatments he recently received at a private facility in Spain include time in an oxygen machine, massages and a special diet.
