â€‹The footballer-turned -actor, Vinnie Jones is suffering from skin cancer has been revealed.
Jones has undergone three operations to remove tumours after a skin abnormality was diagnosed as a melanoma in February.
He told The Sun: "First I found this little lump under my eye. I didn't know if it was a blackhead or a little wart.
"When the doctor said I had skin cancer, the first thing I thought was, 'How long have I got?'"
The 48-year-old had two surgeries on his eye earlier in the year and underwent a third procedure to remove a tumour from the back of his head two months ago.
Coincidentally, he revealed that his wife Tanya is also suffering from the disease and has had several growths removed.
Her condition is thought to be a side effect of the medication she takes, following a heart transplant 26 years ago.
He explained: "They have cut out three bits so far and I'm constantly worried now about where I could find it next.
"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."
