"The BBC is a dark, cold place" Tom Jones

"What a cold and dark place the BBC is. Sometimes you wonder whether it's run by humans or a machine in the basement," Jones writes.

Sir Tom Jones performs on Day 1 of V Festival at Hylands Park.

"[Former BBC managing director Bill Cotton] knew intuitively what makes entertainment work for the British public. Sadly there's not so much of that at the BBC today."

Jones previously revealed that he was told that his contract for The Voice would not be renewed at the last moment with "no consultation or conversation of any kind".

BBC TV chief Danny Cohen later said he was "truly sorry" that Jones was upset by the manner of his axing and called him a "gentleman" and "extraordinary figure in music".

Jones also criticises the BBC in his new memoir Over the Top and Back: The Autobiography.
