Max George pens emotional message to best pal Tom Parker after funeral

Max George has shared an emotional message to Tom Parker after saying goodbye to his close pal at his funeral earlier this week.

The Wanted star Max, 33, shared photos from Tom's funeral, which was attended by family and friends as hundreds of fans lined the streets to say goodbye to Tom, on his Instagram page and penned the touching message.

One image showed Max and his fellow bandmates as pallbearers and carrying Tom's coffin from the hearse into the church in emotional scenes.

As Strictly Come Dancing star Max, who recently reunited with Stacey Giggs after a brief split, wrote a touching message to Tom in the caption. It read: "Good night beautiful boy. I will always think of you.

"Thanks for making my life so much better than I could ever have hoped for."

Max added: "Carrying you was an honour. You have carried me so many times over the last 12 years.

"I love you Tom. See you up there brother" followed by a red heart emoji.

The singer's post was met with supportive messages from celebrity friends and fans. Martine McCutcheon, who recently recalled a "magical" night with late pal Tom, wrote: "Beautiful words. You have such a big heart and was the bestest friend anyone could have wished for.

"What you shared in one life was the equivalent of 50 for many others! Sending you all my love darling. Martine xxxx".

While Kimberley Walsh simply commented with a red heart emoji. And former Strictly professional dancer Kevin Clifton said: "Hope ur ok mate" followed by a red heart emoji.

Max delivered a touching eulogy to Tom, who tragically passed away age 33 after a brain cancer battle.

He said: "So, I hadn't actually written this bit, but as we were carrying Tom in, I could hear him saying, ‘It’s about time’ because he’s carried us for the past 12 years.

"He definitely was saying that," Max added, as the crowd laughed.

"Obviously, it's with the deepest sadness that we're here today, but I'm going to try and say some things that hopefully from us boys will make you smile about Tom," he said.

Max then said how he and his fellow bandmates saw Tom like family, describing him as a "brother".

He continued: "Tom was and always will be a brother to myself and my bandmates, he made such an impact on us from the start, and his love for music and strive for success outmatches any of us completely."
