Tom Jones mobbed with knickers

Sir Tom Jones is still a knicker-magnet at 74

Sir Tom Jones has proved he's still a Sex Bomb at 74 when the stage was filled with knickers as he returned to perform in Wales for the first time in nearly a decade.

The Welsh crooner played his first gig on the Green Green Grass of Home for nine years at Chepstow Racecourse, where hoards of screaming women hurled their underwear at him.

One of the 10,000 fans at the outdoor concert told the Daily Mirror: "We throw the pants to show we still think he's a sex bomb in his 70s."

Tom also performed in London's Hyde Park as part of Barclaycard British Summertime at the weekend, where lacy pants were waved on a flagpole and a pair of Welsh flag knickers were thrown about by the crowd.

As women screamed their adoration for Tom he shouted back: "Thank you, I love you too!"

Male fans were just as impressed, joining in the dancing and singing along as The Voice judge performed old favourites including Delilah, It's Not Unusual and You Can Leave Your Hat On.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's time to take charge of your finances. You can't relax unless you have some money in the bank. Therefore, you should land a good job that brings a steady income. Don't be afraid to ask for more money than you are initially offered. A show of courage will pave the way for a good working relationship with your boss. You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
