I hope I was respectful of everyone.‘But Elvis was absolutely the love of my life, and there’s no sadness about it because I have my memories, and they’re delicious and they’re all mine.’Tommy Woodward fell in love with Melinda Trenchard when they were both 15, and youngsters in Treforest, South Glamorgan.
Linda fell pregnant and married him shortly after her 16th birthday, in March 1957.
Elvis later that year took Priscilla to see Tom playing at the Flamingo in Las Vegas — they flew in by private jet.
The two men chatted afterwards backstage and Tom’s PR, Chris Hutchins, who was there, said Elvis told Tom how much he loved The Green, Green Grass Of Home and declared: ‘Man, that was terrific.
A friend said: ‘Tom has had a difficult year with Linda’s death and Priscilla has been an amazing support.‘Tom and Priscilla are courting.
The first thing that hit me after he died was I should have gone and seen him.’Priscilla has repeatedly said that — despite their divorce — she always loved Elvis. We never stopped loving each other.’In an interview last year, she said that having Elvis as a former husband probably meant that she was impossible to date: ‘Being with the most gorgeous man ever and not just gorgeous but a good human being too, I realised this could be difficult, so I never threw it in their faces.
Priscilla — who had married Elvis the previous year — astonished Tom by requesting his autograph.
She later said that the men were ‘like a couple of schoolboys together’.
(Two former boyfriends sold stories about their time together after the romances ended.)‘Tom is perfect because he is none of these things and he is the kind of man who will treat her as a princess, and that is the way she likes it.
I think they are made for each other.’Indeed, there are striking parallels between their lives. They first met in early 1968 — a full 49 years ago — and were firm friends while Elvis was alive.
