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...''
