Vinnie Jones, known for his prowess on the football ground as well as his abilities as an actor, is right now facing a big hurdle in his life. It is like a double whammy as both Vinnie and his wife, Tanya, are facing a cancer diagnosis.

Explaining his situation which is perhaps the hardest of the challenges he has ever faced, Vinnie said, "Cancer is a horrible word to hear. It frightens the life out of you. I've faced the biggest and ugliest lads on the football field and been in some nasty bar brawls. But this is my toughest and scariest opponent yet."

An innocuous lump under his eye turned out to be the worst news for him as he was diagnosed with skin cancer. His wife Tanya has also been diagnosed with skin cancer.

She has battled several health problems throughout and had also undergone a heart transplant in her twenties. She is 47 years old now.

"It's weighing very heavily on me all the time. It has really knocked me for six and made me reassess my life and goals," he said.

"If you spot something on your skin that doesn't feel right, like a little spot or tick, then get it checked out immediately."
