Sir Tom Jones can't sing without wife

Sir Tom Jones doesn't think he'll be able to sing anymore if his wife was to die.

The 'Sex Bomb' hitmaker, who has had a number of dalliances with other woman during his five decades in the music business, has admitted he would consider giving up his career if Melinda Trenchard - nicknamed Linda - was to pass away because he dedicates a lot of his songs to her.

Speaking on the 'Jonathan Ross Show', which airs tonight (17.10.15) on ITV at 10.15pm, he said: "A lot of the songs that I do, the love songs that I do, of course it's Linda is there and yes, she is the one.

"I don't want to go on about it but she wasn't well a while ago and she got close to... we didn't know whether she was going to make it or not and I said to Mark [my son] I said, 'If your mother doesn't make it, I don't know whether I can sing' because a lot of the songs that I do, I think of her when I do it so it would be hard if she wasn't there to be able to sing."

The 75-year-old singer married Linda after he got her pregnant - the pair were just 16 years old at the time - and he believes their strong love for one another got them through the drama that has come their way over the years.

He explained: "She loves being married to me and I love being married to her so whatever happened..."
