The boyband have recently reunited after a seven year break, with Parker's health being one of the main reasons for doing so.

Last month, the singer announced that the results of a scan had showed the tumour was "stable".

Speaking on a pre-recorded Christmas Day special of Good Morning Britain, the 33-year-old addressed his current health and said he was “just cracking on” with life.

"It’s unusual to get into this position a year down the way, but I’m just happy to be back with the boys and happy to be out of the house and away from the kids to be honest with you. They’re at that age now where they’re hurting Daddy’s ears!”

His fellow band member, Nathan Sykes, said Parker being able to come back to the band is  “the biggest gift we’ve got this Christmas".

Parker previously updated fans on his health on Instagram explaining that, according to his latest test results, his tumour was "under control".

He shared a picture with his wife Kelsey and their two young children, complete with balloons in the background fit for a celebration.

In the caption, he said: "I'm sat here with tears in my eyes as I tell you. We've got my brain tumour under control.

"We've had the results from my latest scan...and I'm delighted to say it is STABLE."

The musician continued: "Such a mix of emotions. We couldn't ask for any more really at this point; a year or so into this journey.

"Honestly over the moon. We can sleep a little easier tonight."

The group's new album Most Wanted is out now.
