Tom Jones: Isle of Wight is beautiful

The Isle of Wight has been described as "lovely" and "beautiful" by Sir Tom Jones.

He was speaking on a trip to the island to perform at the Isle of Wight Festival that took place last weekend and said he got to see it from the air as he travelled by helicopter.

"I've never been to the Isle of Wight - which I've always wanted to do, but never got around to it - so I'm killing two birds with one stone," he told reporters at the event.

Sir Tom was booked by the organisers of the Isle of Wight Festival to sing in the Big Top at the event on Sunday night (June 12th).

Other acts to have performed on the island during the bash included Foo Fighters, Pulp, Kasabian and Kings of Leon, while the Big Top starred names such as Manic Street Preachers, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and Alexandra Burke.
