The ‘Cocktail’ star is living in Kent but is believed to currently be on holiday in Cornwall, and over the last few weeks he was spotted in the crowd at both the Wimbledon tennis tournament and Euro 2020 at Wembley Stadium.

Tom had marked his 59th birthday by hosting a viewing party for England V Ukraine in the quarter-final of the tournament.
