The 32-year-old said the band were a big supporter of Tom following his diagnosis, and have pledged to have input in his daughter and son’s life after he’s gone.

Jay McGuinness, 31, even moved into the family home during Tom’s final days to help care for the youngsters so that Kelsey could visit Tom in the hospice.
