Speaking exclusively to Express & Star, Tom said: "I’m very excited to bringing my live show to Walsall and what a guest too… Noddy! He’s coming home!"

"This will be the third live show I’ve done with Noddy and I can’t wait.

"He has the most amazing rock ’n’ roll stories which he shares with his infectious sense of humour, humility and there’s definitely no holds barred," he continued.

"I feel very lucky that Noddy is a fan of my playing - I play boogie woogie piano and sing.

"We’ll talk about everything and anything, but ultimately getting round to Nod’s favourite songs which my band and I will perform live on the night.

"He hasn’t sung properly in public for 30 years…you never know…anything could happen!"

"I’m delighted we could make a Walsall show work, I know people in the Midlands idolise him and rightly so.

"I’ve been fortunate to spend some time off stage with him, the word legend is over used but let me tell you…this man is a true legend."
