Vinnie Jones breaks down in first TV interview since wife’s death

Vinnie Jones broke down in tears in his first TV appearance since the death of his wife Tanya, as he revealed how she told him not to grieve for her in a letter. The footballer-turned-actor also praised Tanya for not seeking fame over the years while commenting on the current feud between footballers’ wives Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy. Tanya – Jones’ wife of 25 years – was 53 when she died on July 6 following a years-long battle with cancer. Jones, 54, told ITV’s Good Morning Britain that he and their daughter Kaley found a letter from Tanya that said: “Don’t grieve, I’ll be waiting for you.”
