More of Tom's famous friends were quick to send their love and support.

James 'Arg' Argent wrote in the comments of his Instagram post : "We love you Tom! We got this brother, No doubt about it!"

Whilst Rebecca Adlington - who starred with Tom on 'The Jump' - added: "Sending so much love and support always."

Tom and his wife Kelsey shared the heart-breaking news on Instagram on Monday morning (12.10.20) and vowed to "fight this all the way" by raising awareness and researching the treatments available.

They wrote: "Hey guys, you know that we’ve both been quiet on social media for a few weeks and it’s time to tell you why. There’s no easy way to say this but I’ve sadly been diagnosed with a Brain Tumour and I’m already undergoing treatment. We decided, after a lot of thought, that rather than hiding away and trying to keep it a secret, we would do one interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in our own way.

"We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way. We don’t want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options. It’s gonna be a tough battle but with everyone’s love and support we are going to beat this. Tom and Kelsey xxx. (sic)"
