A few months earlier, Vinnie had revealed that he was still talking to his late wife after her death at the age of 53.

The ex-footballer, 55, told the Daily Star: “Every morning I get up, make my bed and chat with Tan for a bit about what I’m doing and how much I miss her. Even now, it’s one day at a time.

He opened up to the post about how he still has great difficulty losing his beloved partner – who died at their home in Los Angeles.

Vinnie has since moved from that house and now lives in a house near his friends at the golf club in Toluca Lake, adding that he leans on his pals for emotional support.

He said: “I see sanity like the hub of a wheel, with a lot of spokes. Each ray represents a different type of problem and mine just happens to be heartache. I am facing the help of my friends.

“I went with the boys for a quiet break in Canada this summer. We did a little fishing and talked. Some of them suffered a lot from alcoholism, something that I struggled with, and they gave me great advice. It was a pleasant environment. “

In September, Vinnie revealed that he thought a white light he saw on the night of Tanya’s death may have been a message from her.

In his book, Lost Without You: Loving And Losing Tanya, Vinnie recalled how he witnessed a strange light hovering over his house and said he still struggled to explain it.

He said: “The night Tans died we were all sitting outside in the back garden… it was around midnight, a calm cloudy night, no moonlight.

“One by one, people were heading inside to lie down, and I told them I would be in a while. I wanted to smoke and watch the dark and be alone.

“As I was sitting there, I noticed a white light above me. I knew it couldn’t be a star because of the cloud cover, but it was there – a simple white light above me.

Vinnie knew that when people lose someone they love they can start looking for signs of it and insists that he “never believed in any of that”.

However, he was sure the white light was real and also knew it wasn’t a star or a helicopter because it was too low.

He said, ‘I don’t know why, but in my grief and despair, I said to the light,’ Is that you, baby? “

“The light was shining above me; he has not wavered or changed. Was it tanned? There was only one way to find out. I thought of all the times she’d say, “Where’s my kiss?” And I would throw one at him to catch.

“So that’s what I did, right there in that dark garden – I threw one last kiss in the white light above me.”

“Suddenly the light swerved, and dived, and hovered, then it flew – zoom in!” – he flew and swerved then he disappeared away from me in this garden, and left me, once more alone.

Vinnie added that he had since checked and rechecked the weather forecast for that night and it was overcast in Los Angeles, with the sun not appearing until noon the next day.

Vinnie and Tanya met as children before exchanging vows in 1994, with the actor admitting in Piers Morgan’s life stories that he would never remarry.

When asked if he could ever get married again, Vinnie said, “I think that’s an impossible question to answer, but if you asked me if I would get married again, it would be an impossibility, she wouldn’t want it.

“There won’t be another Piers wedding, I can tell you. It was perfect and made for me.
