'Snatch' Star Vinnie Jones Cries As He Talks About His Wife's Last Moments Of Life: "She Kept Saying ‘Take Me Home'"

Date November 29, 2019

It’s always sad to hear that a spouse is left without a beloved partner. Actor Vinnie Jones was going through a hard period as he was mourning the passing of his beloved wife, Tanya.

RIP, Tanya

The wife of the Snatch star passed away after a six-year battle with cancer at the age of 53. Representatives of Vinnie confirmed the news in a statement:

Tanya passed peacefully at the Jones family home surrounded by Vinnie, their daughter, and other family members.

Back in 2013, both Tanya and Vinnie were diagnosed with melanoma (skin cancer) and battled it together. However, Vinnie later made a full recovery, but his wife wasn't so lucky.

Vinnie Jones breaks his silence

Numerous colleagues and fans of Vinnie expressed their condolences. But we can’t even imagine how hard it must be for the actor himself to deal with his wife’s demise.

The Snatch star broke his silence following Tanya’s passing via an emotional interview with Sunday Mirror. The former footballer broke down in tears as he revealed the last moments before his beloved wife slipped away. He said:

She was the light of my life. I will never be with anyone else. I never told her she was dying. We never spoke of that; I didn’t want her to know. But she kept saying ‘take me home. Can I go home now?’ She desperately wanted to go home.

The actor continued:

She has never ever slept one night in the hospital without me there. I have always been by her side. Through my grief, I said: ‘I don’t want her to be in any pain’. So we took her home. Straight away she was on the oxygen. Then she was on fentanyl. We got some beautiful innocent moments in those last days.

Perfect match

Vinnie once gushed about his 25-year marriage to his wife. He said that they are the perfect match and he was lucky to find it. The actor described his wife as "the most incredible person".

It is so hard to be left without his wife. We keep praying for Vinnie Jones and wish him to stay strong amid this dark period.
