Vinnie Jones has told The Big Issue that he starts every day with a chat to his late wife Tanya.
Speaking just before the one-year anniversary of her death, the footballer-turned-actor talked about how he’s coping since he lost her to cancer in July last year.
“Now I take things day to day. I get up in the morning and I have a little chat with her when I’m making my bed. And then I somehow muddle through the day,” he said.
Vinnie was by Tanya’s side when she passed away at their LA home in July 2019.
“It’ll be a year on Monday [July 6] since she passed and it was our 26th wedding anniversary on the 25th of June, so it’s been a hard couple of weeks,” he added. “The grief sort of creeps up on you like the fog. And you have to get through it and get to the sunshine on the other side.”
Vinnie also looked back on the couple’s quarter century together, and his early attempts to get her attention.
