Vinnie Jones seeing therapist after wife Tanya's tragic death

Vinnie Jones is seeing a therapist, following the death of beloved wife Tanya.

The former footballer’s world was turned upside down last July when she died aged 53, after a battle with cancer.

Discussing the impact the loss had on him in a candid interview, the 55-year-old explained he has turned to professional help after ‘shutting himself off’ from those closest to him.

And he ‘recommends’ others doing the same, as men never speak out about how they are really feeling.

‘I’m seeing someone three times a week. I thought I was doing okay, and then the anniversaries of Tans’s death and our daughter Kaley’s birthday were approaching and it was like somebody just drained the life out of me,’ the Snatch actor said.

Vinnie and Tanya met as children, at a social club in their shared home town of Watford.

They drifted apart and had children with other partners, with Tanya welcoming daughter Kaley from a previous marriage, and Vinnie becoming a dad to son Aaron.

But they reconnected in 1991, and walked down the aisle together three years later.

Speaking to the Sun, he explained that he doesn’t think he will ever ‘move on’ from the tragedy, or get remarried – but he can see his life getting better.

‘I think my life will improve. The tiredness will ease,’ he added. ‘I’m 99.9 per cent sure I won’t get married again.
