Hollywood actor Vinnie Jones has revealed he and his wife Tanya are both battling skin cancer.

The 48-year-old former footballer, who played for Wimbledon, Chelsea and Leeds United before embarking on a successful acting career, first noticed a lump beneath his right eye in February. But it was only when he went to the doctor to have it checked out that the lump was a melanoma - a dangerous strain of the skin disease which kills around 2,000 people every year in the UK.

Vinnie has now vowed to fight the condition with ‘everything I’ve got’. (c) Mail Online 24/11/13
