Love Island's Liam Reardon regularly bursts into song, usually crooning the Tom Jones classic 'It's Not Unusual', but now the legendary singer has said he approves of Liam's plan to get a tattoo of him.
Welsh builder Liam, 22, hails from Merthyr Tydfil, and has made no secret of how much he loves Sir Tom Jones and his music.
Fans regularly post memes and jokes about the hunk's habit of singing, but he has approval from Sir Tom himself for the planned inking.
When he arrived in the villa, viewers were wowed by Liam's tattoo collection, which currently includes portraits of Frank Sinatra and Muhammad Ali.
His tattoo artist, Lucy Turner of Lucy Lou's Tattoos, @lucyturnertattoos, said Liam plans to add more: "We have spoke about doing Tom Jones and maybe Aretha Franklin too.
"He’s said that his love for older musicians comes from his father."
Now Sex Bomb singer Sir Tom has given it the thumbs up in a recent interview.
He laughed happily when he was told of Liam's plans: "Great! It's a compliment. For someone to go to those lengths? It's definitely a compliment."
"Frank Sinatra? Well that's good company to be in. And Muhammad Ali – He's a great one to have on. What about Elvis – he hasn't got Elvis on there?"
Meanwhile, Sir Tom says he'll never get any ink himself, as it's "too permanent".
It looks like Liam will need more tattoo appointments.
Fans were in hysterics after Liam's talent show performance.
He serenaded everyone with a Tom Jones tune, and then sang it to his "baby" as part of a challenge.
"Liam thinking Tom Jones is a lullaby is the most Welsh thing I’ve ever heard" joked one viewer.
"Liam singing Tom Jones is so cute, he's enjoying himself and it makes me so happy" swooned one another fan of his singing.
"Liam is getting possessed by Tom Jones spirit to lift the mood" laughed one.
He definitely has to get that tattoo now!
