The Welsh singer is famous for some of the biggest Welsh songs in history.
It’s Not Unusual, Sexbomb, Delilah and She’s a Lady, to name but a few.
And Sir Tom is one of those rare celebrities whose popularity and talent has been enduring across the decades.
The popular singer remains a staple on television with his role as a voice coach and mentor on The Voice UK.
