The Games fans all saying the same thing as Max George makes first TV appearance since death of The Wanted's Tom Parker

MAX George has inspired his army of fans after competing in The Games so soon after Tom Parker's tragic death.

The singer, 33, was seen taking part in three sporting events during the first episode of new reality series on Monday night.

Max gave The Hammer Throw and synchronised diving a go before running in the men's 400 metres race.

Unfortunately, he suffered an injury during the event and finished in last place with a limp, but fans of The Games were just impressed with his courage.

The launch of the ITV show comes less than five weeks after Max's best friend and Wanted bandmate Tom died from a brain tumour.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer said: "For Max to even be present for this just shows his immeasurable strength and courage, whatever the results we’ll always be forever proud of you and Tom will be too."

Following his friend's tragic death, the grieving star shared an emotional tribute online that left fans in tears.

Within the message, he wrote: "Thank you for choosing me as your friend. It was an honour from day one.

"I’m so grateful I was with you until the very end. The courage and dignity I have witnessed over the last few months surpassed the lion I already knew you were.

"The huge hole now left in my life will forever be there, but I know your spirit will live on through your two beautiful babies, your wonderful wife, our music, your fans and in my heart."


Two weeks later, Max was pictured putting on a brave face as he trained for The Games at an athletics track.

He is among 12 celebrities taking on Olympic-style games throughout this week on ITV1.

Following his first appearance and injury on The Games, Max thanked fans for their support.

Once the show had aired, he tweeted: "Sorry guys… been a tough few days but will hopefully be back tomorrow.

"Your support has been amazing.. and the signs at the event made my day. Much love always and congrats to all the other boys and girls."
