Tom Jones - Sir Tom Granted A Family Coat Of Arms

Sir Tom Jones is set to join Britain's most elite families after applying for his own coat of arms.
The Delilah legend will join the ranks of aristocratic dynasties by having his own armorial bearings after being granted the honour in recent months.
The unique design will feature a red dragon in recognition of Jones' Welsh roots, as well as two trees, which link to his real last name, Woodward.
David White, the Somerset Herald at the College of Arms, tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "He has been granted arms in the last year."
Jones is not the first music icon to be granted a coat of arms - Sir Paul MCCartney has his own, which features a guitar and a Liver Bird, a symbol of his hometown of Liverpool, England.
