Vinnie Jones breaks down in tears over his late wife Tanya during his upcoming appearance on Piers Morgan's Life Stories.

The Hollywood star first appeared on the same show 11 years ago, however this time around follows the heartbreaking death of his wife Tanya.

In a preview clip, which was aired on Good Morning Britain, Piers, 55, plays Vinnie, also 55, a segment from his first interview.

Back then, he spoke of how nothing could break him and Tanya apart – not even a Page 3 girl or a Chippendale hunk.

After the clip, Vinnie can be seen with trembling lips as he struggles with the memory.

ITV regular Piers asks him: "Before that even came on, you were getting emotional.

"Is it still unbearable to see her?"

Holding back tears, an emotional Vinnie replies: "No, I suppose it's probably the memories more than anything."

The former footballer continues: "Such a beautiful person."

Vinnie speaks of how his life has changed since then and how he is coming to terms with losing his best friend and beloved wife.

He and Tanya were married for 25 years and he had adopted her daughter, Kaley.

The couple also had one child together – a son called Aaron.

They tied the knot in Watford in 1994 before they moved to LA, where he kickstarted his acting career.

Then, 13 years later in 2007, the couple renewed their vows.

Tanya died on July 6, 2019 after a six-year battle with cancer.

Her death came amid Vinnie's time on X Factor: Celebrity, with ITV bosses allowing him to bypass the audition stages.

The actor was offered an unconditional place in the live shows after X Factor boss Simon Cowell personally called him.

Vinnie made it to the semi-finals and was eliminated in sixth place after beating out the likes of Jonny Labey, the Love Island supergroup and Glee star Kevin McHale.

Piers Morgan’s Life Stories with Vinnie Jones airs on Saturday, September 5, on ITV at 10pm
