Since the Government lockdown began at the end of March, Tom has taken to social media sharing a vital message of hope, including a version of Paolo Nutini's Last Request for Radio X's Phone Covers.

Tom contracted COVID-19 himself in April, telling fans: "I've been in bed, laid up. My joints feel like they’ve aged about 50 years. I’ve slept so much.

"Like, I thought I was a healthy 24-year-old boy, but anyone can get this and it is f***ing serious. I'm just happy to say I'm getting better and it's OK."

Tom's latest single is Oh Please, taken from his forthcoming second album, which is on pre-order from his website now.
