When asked how he is doing now, Tom replied: “I’m just cracking on to be honest.

“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!”

Tom revealed in October 2020 that he had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, but last month he announced that the results of a scan showed it was now “stable” and “under control” after receiving treatment.

Discussing the band reforming after their long hiatus, fellow band member Nathan Sykes said: “The biggest gift we’ve got this Christmas is being in a band with Tom.”

Max added: “Things clicked into place straight away, I know that.

“I think we were quite apprehensive, all of us. Then we met up to do a photoshoot and then as soon as we met it was like, ‘OK, things haven’t changed at all’.”

Siva agreed, adding: “I think 2020 did bring reality to all of us too, how we missed each other and not to sweat the small stuff.”

George continued: “Especially Tom’s situation. We’re a band of brothers, we’ve got to get this thing going again.”

They added that seeing each other’s families and laughing together again have been two of the best things about them getting back together.

The Good Morning Britain special, hosted by Susanna Reid, Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway, also featured a string of famous faces including Martin and Shirlie Kemp who reminisced about their Christmases with the late pop star George Michael.

First Dates star Fred Sirieix also made an appearance, as did Britain’s most decorated Olympic couple Laura and Jason Kenny.

Olympic gymnast Max Whitlock, Paralympian Dame Sarah Storey, comedian Tim Vine and Call the Midwife stars Miriam Margolyes and Chris Parisi also joined the morning show’s festive special.

Grammy award-winning singer Norah Jones performed a rendition of White Christmas by Bing Crosby, from New York.
