Tom Jones is still a ‘sex bomb at 80’ with women ‘writing his name across chest’


Tom Jones is in no doubt he is still a fully loaded Sex Bomb as he gets ready to turn 80.

The legendary crooner hits the ­milestone age next June and says his interest in the ladies is as keen as ever

Sir Tom, whose wife Linda died in 2016, confessed he eyes up women who are 30 and thinks of himself as their age.

But it’s the grannies who have the hots for him nowadays.

“It’s mostly the ­grandmothers who fancy me,” the Delilah singer confessed.

Sir Tom, who returns as a coach on ITV’s The Voice this weekend, says his fans still lust after him.

“Some have got my name written across their chest.”

The singer – who reached No3 in the singles chart with Mousse T belting out Sex Bomb in 2000 – confessed to having sex with up to 250 groupies a year at the height of his fame.

And he recalled a time a woman screamed how she wanted to get intimate with him at a concert.

Sir Tom said: “I was in Scotland and I opened the show with a John Lee Hooker song called Burning Hell. The first line is ‘I am going down to the church’.

“The fella that worked with me said there was a Scottish woman saying something that sounded similar but meant something else. I’m glad I didn’t hear it otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to sing that line any more.”

Asked if he saw 30-year-old women as the right age for him, Sir Tom said: “Yeah, I do. You can’t see yourself when you are looking at ­somebody else.

“I can’t believe it when they say 80 years old because when you are young and you think 80 it sounds old.”

Last year the star had to cancel shows after being treated in hospital for a bacterial infection.
