‘I’m an emotional wreck after Siva’s performance,’ another added.

‘I’m sorry but Siva should’ve got 10s and I sobbed the whole way through,’ a third person tweeted.

‘It is shocking how little funding goes into researching brain tumours, and I have the passion to campaign for more, because it really infuriates me.

‘If more funding was channelled into that research, Tom would be here. That is why it is so important that we are still talking about him, and that Siva will go on Dancing on Ice tonight to celebrate him.
