Our thoughts are with Louis Tomlinson and his family.

After Louis Tomlinson's mother, Johannah Deakin, passed away at the age of 43 after battling leukaemia, the singer's father was diagnosed with liver cancer, at the age of 49.

Tragically, Troy Austin, had to have a four-hour long operation which removed the tumour, and will hopefully save Louis' father's life.

Following the procedure, Troy said "The staff have been brilliant. The doctors are amazing and the nurses are hilarious; they really lift your spirits every day."

He also praised the NHS' service and blamed his tumour on drinking and smoking.

Louis' 33.7m followers took to Twitter to share their support and love for Louis, once the news broke.

Troy is said to be recovering now, and we hope that he will be okay, and send all of our love to Louis Tomlinson and his entire family.
