Peter Donegan, the son of British singer songwriter Lonnie Donegan who wrote a song for Tom Jones in the 60s, auditioned for The Voice 2019 and it got very emotional.

The Voice returned to our screens tonight, and we don't mean to be dramatic, but we're pretty sure we cried no less than 84 times throughout the episode.

In probably the most emotional talent show episode to ever grace our screens, we saw Peter Donegan, the son of late British singer Lonnie Donegan, audition.

Tom Jones was the only coach to turn for Peter, and we subsequently found out that the pair had a truly heart-wrenching connection.

When Peter told the coaches his name, Tom asked him if he was any relation to Lonnie Donegan. When Peter revealed that he was, Tom delightedly revealed to the audience and his fellow coaches Olly Murs, Jennifer Hudson and will.i.am that he toured with Lonnie

He then told that Lonnie, who sadly passed away in 2002, had written a song for him called I'll Never Love Again, and asked Peter if he knew it.

Peter replied that he could play it on the piano and, to the delight of the audience, coaches and Peter's mum, wife and son watching from backstage, Tom and Peter performed a duet.

Who was Lonnie Donegan?
