Vinnie Jones: My wife’s heart transplant ‘saved my life, not just hers’


Vinnie Jones has said that his late wife’s heart transplant three decades ago “saved my life, not just hers”. The footballer-turned-actor’s wife Tanya suffered heart failure after giving birth aged 21. However, she received the “fantastic gift” of a new heart from the family of a 10-year-old boy who died in a car accident in Germany. The star was interviewed by BBC Inside Out as he welcomed a change in organ donation laws.
