Sir Tom Jones has admitted his wife of nearly sixty years has been battling depression since she was young.

Speaking to the Sunday Times magazine, Sir Tom said his wife Linda has 'lost her spark' and let herself go.

The Welsh singer called his marriage of 58 years 'rock solid', and said 'all the rest was fun and games'.

He has previously said he would not be able to carry on singing if his wife died.

Mrs Jones has emphysema and has twice had brushes with cancer. The pair have been married since Jones was sixteen.

She's the most important thing in my life. An unbelievable woman. Linda is the love of my life and she still is, even though she doesn't look like she did.

I don't look like I did either, but I try my best.

– Sir Tom Jones

Over 700 people from all over the country will gather outside Wales' Millennium Centre this evening to perform in the largest outdoor production to take place in Wales this year.

The Ar Waith Ar Daith production will be the highlight of the Millennium Centre's 10th birthday celebrations.

Preparations for the outdoor spectacular have been taking place over the last eight months.

Over the past six months, the creative team have been gathering gifts from across Wales – paying tribute to the riches of the seas around North Wales, the mineral wealth of South Wales, and capturing stories and inspiration from across the land.

Sea rowers from Porthmadog have also completed a 230 mile journey to Cardiff Bay ahead of their appearance in tonight's celebratory performance.

They carried with them an engraved slate plaque – a gift to Wales Millennium Centre – from Llechwedd Slate Caverns.

Ar Waith Ar Daith far exceeds anything, by way of scale, that we have ever commissioned here at Wales Millennium the Centre. It has been fantastic to work with outdoor arts experts, Walk the Plank throughout the year-long planning and creation process. Ar Waith Ar Daith has embraced this fully, working closely with Welsh artists and communities and expertly weaving this creativity and inspiration into the finale performance.
