Tom Jones’ phone goes off loudly mid-interview with Zoe Ball as he exclaims ‘I’m sweating’

“I was there in the hospital room with her for the last 10 days and I said, ‘My god Linda, I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself because I won’t be able to sing, I won’t be able to get the words out,'” Tom explained.

He went on: “She said, ‘You must! Don’t fall with me! You know, I gotta go. But you don’t have to. And you’ve got to go and do what we planned to do’, which was to move back to London.’

“But she said, ‘I’ve just run out of time. But you’ve got to go and do it now.'”

In 2016, Linda, who was Sir Tom’s high school girlfriend, died at the age of 75 after suffering from lung cancer.
