However, it was his phone that caught people’s eye.

Despite being a multi-millionaire many times over, Sir Tom has an old flip phone. And he can barely use it to text.

He said to Anne-Marie: “I can’t text on it, I don’t spell well.

“I can read – no problem, but I’m no good at spelling. I’ll have to read it and you write it.”

Viewers couldn’t believe it with one tweeting: “Tom Jones having a flip phone is incredible #CelebrityGogglebox #Gogglebox.”

And there was a more emotional moment when the the two singers watched an episode of Supervet.

Sir Tom Jones emotional over Supervet’s dog Keira

Tom became emotional as the vet’s own dog Keira desperately needed an operation to save her life.

“Oh, she’s bound to pull through,” Tom told Anne Marie. “You can’t have a dog dying on the television.”

However, the rest of the episode detailed how vet Neil could save Keira the dog’s life.

Keira’s injuries included her pelvis being crushed.

Neil had to decide whether he would be performing the surgery on his own dog – and fortunately he opted to.

“Well he better do, he’s the bloody Supervet isn’t he?” Tom told Anne Marie.
