TOM Parker’s widow Kelsey has made her red carpet debut at UK Times’s Who Cares Wins awards after finding love with an electrician.
Kelsey stunned in sequins as she entered our glittering ceremony – presented by Davina McCall and sponsored by The National Lottery – which celebrates heroes from across the health sector.
She will tonight join celebrities including Anthony Joshua, Jamie Oliver, Harry Redknapp, Mel B, Olivia Attwood, Susanna Reid, Ellie Simmonds and Katie Piper mingling with all our lucky nominees.
Sun doctor Zoe Williams is one of the judges, alongside Claudia Winkleman, Christine Lampard, Tyrone Mings, Adam Kay, Penny Lancaster, Sun editor Victoria Newton and Ellie Orton, CEO of NHS Charities Together.
Kelsey’s love, The Wanted star Tom sadly died aged 33 on March 30 2022 after a brave battle with brain cancer.
Today she was still wearing her wedding ring as she strut down the red carpet.
Tom was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour in 2020 and given just 18 months to live.
But brave Tom beat the odds after undergoing several gruelling rounds of chemotherapy and 30 radiotherapy sessions.
He tragically left behind his children Aurelia, three, and Bodhi, one, as well as his Kelsey.
In April she opened up to UK Times about Tom’s final moments.
She said: “I got into bed with him. We were in bed together for two hours, I just wanted that time with him.
“It was romantic even then. Yes, we were in a hospice but that was Tom as a person, it never mattered where we were.
“I said, ‘You know Tom, I will be OK, the kids will be OK. I will make sure that everything you want them to know, the things that you’ve taught me over the years, I promise to teach them it all’.
“He said, ‘I know you’re going to be OK’. He then took off his wedding ring and put it on my finger.”

Her stunning entrance comes just a day after we revealed her new boyfriend Sean Boggans, 39, was previously jailed at the Old Bailey for manslaughter.
He was handed four years by a judge after he knocked a stranger unconscious in a bust-up over a taxi in February 2013.
Widow Kelsey is said to have grown close to Boggans eight months after the death of her husband, The Wanted singer Tom Parker.
Boggans was by her side at a pal’s wedding in Greenwich, South London, last month after the couple were introduced through mutual friends.
In 2013, Boggans was jailed for four years over the manslaughter of Shaun McDermott, 44.
UK Times’s Who Cares Wins awards will be broadcast on Channel 4 and All 4 on Sunday, November 27 at 6.30pm
