I need Tom for marshmallow challenge - Angela

THE Voice UK star Angela Scanlon has revealed she is trying to convince music legend Tom Jones to belt out some of his hits - with a mouth full of marshmallows.

The flame-haired Dubliner (30), who is the presenter of the online behind-the-scenes show The Voice Unheard, described the Welsh judge as a "legend".

"I've been trying to get Tom Jones to do our marshmallow challenge," she said. "We have been filming videos of us singing Tom Jones songs. I sang It's Not Unusual with 12 marshmallows stuck in my mouth - it was hilarious.

"He is a legend, which is something that gets thrown around a lot but he is the personification of that word."

The stylist-turned-presenter added that she's busy coming up with a new nickname for the music veteran after he told her that she can call him "anything she wanted".

"Lara Lee, one of his acts, calls him the 'silver bear legend'," Angela said.

"I asked him if I could call him the 'silver bear legend' too and he said I could call him whatever I wanted. So I'm not sure what I'm going to call him yet but he's okay with it."

Along with The Voice UK, the stylish presenter has been kept busy across the pond, hosting the London Fashion Weekend showcase last month.
