Sir Tom Jones revealed his wife Melinda Trenchard, known as “Lady Linda”, made a heartfelt plea to the musician, after he broke the news to his other half. It comes after the Sex Bomb crooner was dropped from The Voice four years ago, when the show aired on the BBC.
The 80-year-old detailed his partner’s shock after he informed her that he wasn’t a part of the programme anymore, in a candid interview.
The Delilah hitmaker was invited back to The Voice in 2017 after ITV brought the rights to broadcast the singing competition.
Addressing his wife’s “annoyance” over the situation, Tom explained that Linda was a big fan of the show.
Speaking with ITV’s Lorriane, Tom said: “Coming back on The Voice – my wife loved the show.
“I would take the DVDs back home to Los Angeles because that’s where we lived.”
Addressing his exit, Tom remarked: “[Linda] couldn’t believe it. She asked, ‘So, you don’t want to do The Voice anymore?’ This was when it all happened.
“I said to her, ‘No, it’s not that. It’s not my choice.’ She then said, ‘You must be joking.”
Lorraine quizzed: “She must have been really annoyed. Really cross.”
Tom agreed: “She was annoyed. But then she passed before [I returned].”
Lorraine remarked: “That’s a shame.”
The Voice coach explained that his late partner would have been pleased to see him go back to the show.
“She would have been happy that I’m back [on the show],” Tom remarked.
The couple were married for close to six decades before Linda sadly died in 2016, after a battle with lung cancer.

The pair tied the knot in 1957 and welcomed their son Mark Woodward the same year.
Discussing his wife’s death, Tom explained that the loss “knocked him” because her battle with the disease was quick.
He said: “When she passed it was so sudden. In April, she found out she had lung cancer.
“It was too late and it was terminal.”
Tom continued: “[Linda’s death] was very, very quick so it really knocked the stuffing out of me.
“Because we had been together since we were kids.”
Tom first joined The Voice in 2012 when the programme previously aired on the BBC and appeared on the series for four years.
In 2016, it was announced that he would no longer be returning and was replaced by Boy George.
The following year ITV picked up the programme and invited Tom back to the red chair. The veteran crooner has remained a regular fixture on the show since his return in 2017.
The Voice UK continues tonight on ITV at 8pm.
