Vinnie Jones says he had supernatural visit from wife Tanya on the night she died

VINNIE Jones believes a white light he saw on the night his wife Tanya died was a sign from his late wife.

The ex-football star, 55, has spoken openly about his grief in the year since Tanya died aged 53 at their home in California after a long cancer fight.

The Snatch actor opened up about how he saw a light in the sky, as he was taking a moment to himself after Tanya died.

Vinnie explained: “The night Tans died we were all sitting outside in the back garden… it was around midnight, a still, overcast night, no moonlight.

“One by one, people were heading inside to bed, and I told them I’d be in in a little while. I wanted to smoke and watch the darkness and be alone.

“As I sat there, I noticed above me a white light. I knew it couldn’t be a star because of the cloud cover, but there it was – a simple white light above me.

“I already knew that when you lose someone you can start to look for things, for signs, so I was on guard. I never believed in any of that stuff and I wasn’t about to start now.”

He added: “But that white light was there, and there was no denying it. It ­definitely wasn’t a star and it wasn’t a helicopter, or a plane, it was too low.” He went on: “I don’t know why, but in my grief and desperation I said to the light, ‘Is that you, babe?’

“The light shone above me; it didn’t waver, or change. Was it Tans? There was only one way to find out. I thought about all the times she’d say, ‘Where’s my kiss?’ and I’d throw her one to catch.

“So that’s what I did, right there in that dark ­garden – I threw one last kiss up to the white light above me.

“Suddenly, the light swerved, and dipped, and hovered, and then it flew – zoom! – it flew and swerved and then it disappeared away from me in that garden, and left me, once again alone.” Vinnie added: “I’ve since checked and re-checked the weather forecast for that night and it was overcast in Los Angeles… the sun didn’t ­appear until noon the next day.”

Vinnie has been very honest about how Tanya’s death has impacted him.

The couple were together for 27 years and married for 25.

He told Piers Morgan’s Life Stories ITV show on Saturday night that he would never remarry.

The couple grew up in Watford and met and dated briefly as teens before going their separate ways.

But when Vinnie signed for Chelsea and returned to live in Watford he found Tanya living next-door-but-one.
