Sir Tom Jones is reportedly dating Priscilla Presley, Elvis' ex-wife.

The Welsh singer (76) is said to be "courting" Priscilla (71), and are "taking things slowly" as a couple. 

"Tom and Priscilla are courting. There is a spark between them but they are taking it slowly. It really is early days but they get on so well," a source told The Sun.

Tom, whose wife Linda died last year, said that he and the actress have been friends "for a long time."

"We have been friends for a long time. She’s a lovely lady. We do enjoy our nights out together."

The pair were spotted enjoying a dinner date in Hollywood last month.

A source added: "Tom has had a difficult year with Linda’s death and Priscilla has been an amazing support."

Priscilla was married to music icon Elvis for six years before divorcing in 1973.

Tom's childhood sweetheart Linda, whom he was married to for 59 years, died of cancer in April last year aged 75.

Sir Tom has previously said of his marriage: "It was solid. We had a solid marriage that nothing could shake and we both felt that.

"I felt very lucky to have fallen in love at an early age. We were teenagers, we fell in love, not just in lust."
