Tom Parkers widow Kelsey says shes struggling to watch Love Island without him

Tom Parkers widow Kelsey has said that she finds it difficult to watch Love Island this year.

She heartbreakingly lost her husband Wanted star Tom in March and the two used to watch Love Island together.

In an exclusive interview with Ok!Magazine she said that it is the little things that she misses the most.

She said: "I’ve found Love Island really hard to watch this year because I’d normally have Tom’s running commentary throughout it, so it’s those little things that I find hard.

She continued: "Even ringing and texting, we’d text each other constantly if we weren’t together, so it’s just missing someone.

"He was my best friend so obviously I miss him so much."

The 33-year-old singer was shockingly given just one year to live in October 2020 when doctors tragically discovered the stage four glioblastoma.

Tom went on his last tour with his band mates just before died on 30 March, leaving behind his wife Kelsey, 32, and two young children Bodhi, one, and Aurelia Rose, two.

Kelsey has spoken about how it can be difficult seeing picture of her late husband all around the house.

"There’s so many beautiful pictures of him but I’ve put them in other places because if you do see it every day that’s tough.."

The childhood sweethearts married in 2018, but the couple met in a club before Tom sky-rocketed to fame with his bandmates.

Kelsey launched a GoFundMe page, in her husband’s memory, which has raised more than £65,000.

Kelsey wrote on the page that the "proceeds [will] eventually [be] going to amazing causes in Tom’s name, to help others in need".

She added: "We simply couldn’t have got through the last two years without the help and support we have received and if we can offer it back to others that would be the best way to honour Tom and make our two children, Aurelia and Bodhi proud."

She found it hard to break the devastating news to her two young children, explaining how she had to be really honest with her toddlers about Tom’s passing.

Tom seemed exhausted during the tour, but his health seemed to be in a rapid decline, and he decided he wanted to go to the hospice in South London.

His funeral took place in 20 April, and his band members carried his coffin into the Saint Francis of Assisi Parish Church in Petts Wood, as Kelsey said goodbye to her soulmate at the service held in the south east of London.
