Tom Jones, 80, admits he uses viagra as he says he needs a ‘little help here and there’

SIR Tom Jones has opened up about using viagra after admitting he needs a “little help here and there”.

The Sex Bomb singer, 80, discussed the changes of his vocal chords over the years with American comedian Marc Maron when he made the comment.

Sir Tom agreed there is “no shame” in using viagra as he joked he still “pushes the s*** out of” his voice despite getting older.

“How is everything else working with the pushing? Alright?” Marc jibed at the Welsh singer as part of his guest appearance on the WTF podcast.

Tom replied: “So far so good. There’s always Viagra. A little help here and there is alright.”

“There is no shame in that at 80, you gotta do what you gotta do,” the comedian replied to his honest admission.

Despite this, age hasn’t affected other parts of Tom’s life, including his singing ability – which he compared to a 30-year-old.

“It is strange being 80 but my voice is still about 30 and that is a big thing,” he went on. “As with older singers you lose control.

“All you have got to do is push it harder. Maybe some old people can’t seem to get it. I feel very sorry for them. They don’t have the Tom Jones push.”

The star also detailed how women used to throw their underwear at him as he spoke on the podcast, saying he often “drowned in a sea of panties.”

“It caught on and I was drowning in a sea of panties after a while. It backfired,” he joked about the phenomenon.

“I was in Vegas and someone threw a room key at me. I said ‘Whose is this’. This woman said ‘Use it and you will find out’.”

It comes after the music legend told how he feared he would not survive the death of his wife Linda in 2016 following a battle with lung cancer.

The heartbreaking revelation – as he marks the fifth anniversary of her death next Saturday – came as he told how he had to see a counsellor after feeling guilty when she died.

Tom said: “I honestly didn’t think I was going to get through it.

“I had to go and see a grief therapist because I kept thinking, “Did I do enough? Was I on the case? Did she slip away without me really realising what was happening?’

“But the therapist said, “No, she had lung cancer, there is nothing you could have done.””

Sir Tom, whose hits include Delilah and It’s Not Unusual, also told how every time he gets on stage she is with him in spirit.

The star has released a new album, with the first song in tribute to his wife[/caption]

The singer, knighted in 2006, told The Observer Magazine: “Before she died, she said, ‘Don’t think of me dying, think of me laughing’. That’s how I remember her.”

Sir Tom was on the road in Los Angeles when he found out that Linda had been given a terminal diagnosis.

During her final fortnight, Sir Tom confessed to her he feared the grief would cripple his singing.

But she encouraged him to sell the house in LA and move to the UK where his family live.

The first track on his new album, Surrounded by Light, is inspired by her words of comfort. Called I Won’t Crumble If You Fall, it also hints at his despair.

One verse goes: “I’m growing drowsy in my chair, and I no longer ponder life. I don’t save a lock of hair, I often dream about my wife.”
