Sir Tom Jones was left devastated when he lost his beloved wife Linda in April, releasing an emotional statement to thank his legions of fans for their support.
However, the star has now reassured his followers that he is “back on form” as he gears up to perform again next month.
The 75-year-old cancelled his remaining tour dates after Linda tragically lost her battle with cancer, and he says that he has now rediscovered his passion for music.
Tom explained: “I’m feeling pretty good now. I’m back in it and getting back in form.
"It’s been a tough few months, losing Linda. She had emphysema, and we thought that’s all it was but it turned out to be worse than that in the end.
"Singing is what I do. I’m a singer and I love to sing. I have to be strong. I was wondering if I could use that love as a strength, and it was.
"Linda wanted me to go on and keep singing, she said not to stop. She was a strong woman and was always there, it was a wonderful feeling to have known someone like that all my life.”
Tom also took the time to credit Linda for keeping him humble as he sky-rocketed to super-stardom, adding: “She kept my feet on the ground. She was a wonderful, wonderful person.
"Once I was smoking cigars and sipping champagne in our snooker room when we were in our 30s. She said to me, ‘Just a minute, do you really think you’re Tom Jones? The man I married was Tom Woodward.’”
We are certainly glad to hear that Tom is doing so much better and the singer is due to perform at Hampton Court Palace on June 8th.
