Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
Sir Tom Jones is set to take the lead role in a new comedy series, according to reports.
In King of Neds, the ‘She’s a Lady’ heartthrob will have several women fighting for his affections, including veteran actresses Brenda Blethyn and Alison Steadman.
"Essentially it's a very British love story. Tom's character is the subject of attention from hordes of women but his heart is not in the sleeping around game,” a source told The Sun. “He ends up getting together with a childhood sweetheart, played by Alison, and the show is all about how sweet that kind of love is."
King of Neds is expected to air on Sky Arts next year.
