Sir Tom Jones has reportedly found love again following the death of his wife Linda last year. The 76-year-old Welsh singer is said to be "courting" Priscilla Presley, widow of music icon Elvis Presley. Rumours of a romance emerged when Tom and Priscilla were spotted arriving together at Hollywood restaurant Craig's last month. A source confirmed to the Sun: "Tom and Priscilla are courting. There is a spark between them but they are taking it slowly. It's early days but they get on so well."

Sir Tom, meanwhile, told the publication: "We have been friends for a long time. She's a lovely lady. We do enjoy out nights out together." Priscilla, 71, and Tom first got to know each other in the late sixties through his friendship with Elvis. She was married to 'the King' from 1967 until their divorce in 1973.
Sir Tom was left heartbroken last April when his wife of 59 years Linda died of cancer at the age of 75. Speaking in October, he revealed that he still dreams of Linda most nights. "I hear her voice. I see her a lot at night," he told the Sunday People. "When I dream that she's still here and then I wake up and she's not, that's the hardest."

The It's Not Unusual star also said he hadn't thought about looking for love again. "It's still hard," he said. "I didn't know whether I'd be able to get up on stage and be emotional with songs, especially songs that she liked. But I can be, and it's lifted me up, and she's there."
