Vinnie Jones is brought to tears over the loss of his wife Tanya in a new interview.

The footballer turned actor is set to open up about his wife’s tragic death on Piers Morgan‘s Life Stories.

He admitted that he hadn’t always been an ideal husband to her, but she was still always there for him.

In the teaser clip, Vinnie explains: “Just the trampoline of being there for me. Yeah, I’d let her down so many times, but she’d catch me.

“And it was so much, many times, it was like catching a falling star. She never once, Piers, wouldn’t put her arms out and catch me.”

He went on to say all he ever asked from her was to be loved unconditionally.

Vinnie appeared on GMB last October and said Tanya left him a heartbreaking letter.

He said: “That [letter] said, ‘Don’t grieve, I will be waiting for you.

“I’ve got something to look forward to…and she’s waiting. That’s what you deal with, that’s the best way to do it.

“That letter has made my daughter very strong. She’s now leading and taking up the reigns.”

Kaley previously told The Mirror that her parents taught her the meaning of love.

She said: “My parents taught me the meaning of real love. That will never die.

“Even in hospital, she was talking about their upcoming 25th wedding anniversary.”

On GMB, Piers explained that the episode will be deeply moving.

He said: “Within three minutes, I showed Vinnie a clip of the last Life Stories, to tee up why we were doing it again, and there was Tanya in the audience.

“And he immediately crumbled, he hadn’t seen the video footage of her, he said, for quite a while, and it hit him.

“It was so raw and moving and uplifting in a way, it was the most extraordinary love story, beauty and the beast in many ways.”
