Vinnie Jones has opened up about the death of his wife Tanya, breaking down in tears during an honest chat about her final moments.

The Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels star reflected on how he found true love with his wife before she passed away following a six-year battle with cancer.

Tanya, who died at age 53, was surrounded by family in her final moments.

Vinnie recalled how the nurses and doctors told him to talk to her while she was asleep as she could hear him.

He explained that one day he was talking about her horse and saw that she started to ride the horse in her sleep, with the 54-year-old describing it as a wonderful memory.

Recalling that one day he woke up to the sound of Tanya coughing, he said: We knew it was the end, we were cuddling her. I kissed her a lot and told her I loved her. I kept saying: “I love you, I love you.”



When she finally went it felt like Tinker Bell had released from her. It felt like her spirit was moving in the room. I got peace from that, Vinnie told The Mirror.

The former footballer went on to say that he cant imagine finding love again, and that he feels Tanya is waiting for him.
