Later, Tom sat on the sofa with Aurelia as he tried to get her to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, but the little one was not up to the task when she quickly moved off the sofa.

Spinning in front of his father, he joked that she was a ‘Grinch’, and Aurelia laughed with joy as he continued to tease her.

Tom also showed off the presents he received on Christmas as he posed with a new baseball cap and Valentino backpack, but his slippers brought him the most joy as he joked, ‘I’m at that age where slippers for Christmas are ONE. ‘

On Saturday, Tom also revealed that he suffers from poor short-term memory loss after chemotherapy and radiotherapy amid his terminal battle of brain tumors.

Speaking of Stories, Tom explained, ‘As some of you know, I went through chemotherapy and worked, didn’t I?

“Which was pretty damn brutal, but some of the side effects of chemotherapy and radio are short-term memory loss.”

The father of two then looked at his wife Kelsey who was standing outside the camera frame and asked, ‘My [memory] It was already bad, wasn’t it? ‘

Kelsey quickly responded with a laugh, saying, ‘It was already awful, so now I’m like … literally, it’s even worse!’

Tom then continued to chat, telling his fans, ‘But it’s the weirdest because I’m going to go to her [Kelsey], “What did I just do? What did I mean?”

‘But I can think of things like that [picks up a childrens’ toy] “What do we have? Te Fiti’s heart [from Moana] for Christmas? “How do you remember that? Stupid.”

Two months ago, Tom announced that he had fourth-grade glioblastoma, and originally from Bolton, he underwent radiotherapy and chemotherapy in an effort to prolong his life.

The life expectancy of this disease ranges from three months to 18 months after diagnosis, but the couple did not ask to hear Tom’s prognosis amid fear that they would “sit and count down the days and not live their lives”.

Then he wrote, ‘Hey guys, you know we’ve both been quiet on social media for a few weeks and it’s time to tell you why.

‘There’s no easy way to say this, but unfortunately I’ve been diagnosed with a Brain Tumor and I’m already on treatment.

‘We decided, after much deliberation, instead of hiding and trying to keep it a secret, we will do one interview in which we could bring out all the details and let everyone know in our own way.

‘We are all absolutely devastated, but we will fight against it to the end. We do not want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness about this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options.

‘It will be a tough battle, but with everyone’s love and support we will win this. Tom and Kelsey xxx. ‘

The couple welcomed their second child, Bodhi’s son, in November.
