THE Voice mentor Tom Jones was due to perform at the Platinum Jubilee concert – but dropped out because diva Shirley Bassey was being, نحن سوف, a bit of a diva.
The Goldfinger legend refused to share a stage with her fellow تهرب من دفع الرهان singer at the event يقدم Strictly Come Dancing على قناة BBC2, even though they were lined up to duet his song Delilah.
