Vinnie Jones brands Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy 'embarrasment' to their husbands

He said his late wife Tanya was the opposite of the warring WAGs

Former football hardman Vinnie Jones has waded into the "War of the WAGS" during an appearance on Good Morning Britain.

Vinnie was talking to the show's hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid about the death of his beloved wife Tanya, who passed away in July after a battle with skin cancer.

Last week, Coleen – who is married to Wayne Rooney – accused Rebekah – who is married to Jamie Vardy – of selling stories about her to the papers.

And, Vinnie revealed, his beloved wife Tanya carried herself in an entirely different way.

He added that there was "no thought of their kids".

Becky's pal Nicola McLean last week revealed that Becky had taken her daughter out of school following Coleen's claims.
