Since his death, fans have been streaming and downloading The Wanted’s songs in his memory.
‘Gold Forever' has been soaring up the iTunes UK Top Songs and during The Sky VIP Official Big Top 40, Will Manning confirmed the tune had taken the 4th spot on the chart.
Taking to Twitter one fan shared: “How powerful and amazing is it that gold forever is charting again. Hopefully that shows them just how much they all mean to us.”
Tom had two children with his wife Kelsey Hardwick; Aurelia, aged two, and one-year-old Bodhi.
He had recently returned to the stage with his bandmates for the Wanted’s tour after missing the first few shows due to his treatment overseas.
Our thoughts are with Tom’s loved ones during this time.
