The Script frontman once partied with legendary singer Tom Jones until 7am.

Irish musician Danny met the 74-year-old singer met when they were both mentors on The Voice UK.

Though he is no longer involved on the tv show, he still likes to catch up with his friend Sir Tom Jones.

"I'm in Los Angeles soon, so I'm going to see if Tom is free to hook up for a barbecue," Danny told OK! magazine.

"I went out drinking with him once till 7am. He loves champagne. I asked him why and he said, 'I used to drink beer and I put on weight, so I went on to vodkas and got so drunk I kept getting into fights.”'

Danny previously spoke about the first night he enjoyed a night out with the Welsh singer, when Tom ‘drank him under the table’

“I am Irish, but he’s got 40 years of practise ahead of me….He could get a gold medal in the 100 milliliters,” Danny joked.

After two seasons on BBC’s The Voice, Danny decided to call it quits and return to writing and producing music full time.

"I did feel that, as far as a career goes, I was like, 'what if'? What if we went back to basics? What if we just retracted from everything? What if it was the three of us again in a room?"

The band are currently working on their fourth studio album, and a world tour for 2015.
