Veteran crooner Tom Jones has a secret reason for growing a goatee beard - it hides his cosmetic surgery scars.
The Sex Bomb singer admits he has had several anti-ageing procedures, including work to his nose, eyes, and chin.
And he confesses the surgery left him with a scar - which he covers up with facial hair.
He says, "I had the fat removed from under my chin. That's why I wear the goatee because it covers the scar. If I went for laser treatment, I could get rid of it, but I thought, f**k it, I'll wear a goatee.
"My nose, that was straightened. Then, with the eyes, they took the heaviness out of the lids."
