“Well, I mean Elvis was the one of course, I met him in LA in 1965 with a ballad out called With These Hands,” Sir Tom said.
“And he was coming towards me and he was singing ‘With these hands, I will cling to you.’
“You know, it was Elvis Presley with his hand out, do you know what I mean?
“I went, ‘If the boys back home could see me know?’ Elvis is singing my song back to me.”
The Voice UK continues next Saturday on ITV at 8.30pm
