  • Boris Johnson's vow to leave the EU by Halloween on October 31st remained a priority
  • Commitment to boost NHS funding
  • Plans to introduce an Australian-style points-based immigration system.

Boris Johnson renewed his commitment to delivering Brexit by October 31st, as The Queen unveiled the government's plans in her speech today.

The 93-year-old monarch announced the government's new legislation, which made clear that it's 'priority has always been to secure the UK's departure from the EU on October 31'.

During the opening of Parliament, the Queen said the government was determined to seize the 'opportunities' of cutting ties with the European Union.

The news comes after fears of a deadlock with Brussels, while there has already been a law passed by remain-backing MP's that requires Boris to seek an extension if a deal is not agreed by October 19th.

The former footballer praised his late wife Tanya Jones for her discretion when it came to media attention, claiming WAGs Coleen and Rebekah had humiliated their husbands and children.

Vinnie Jones has weighed into the Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney row, branding the fall out between the footballer's wives "embarrassing".

In his first television interview since the death of his wife Tanya in July, the former footballer-turned actor praised his wife for her discretion over the years.

Praising his wife for never seeking fame, he said: “You look at the papers now with the two football wives. Tanya got offered hundreds and hundreds of opportunities to do modelling and do stories and she never did any of them. She was the opposite to these girls now."

Rooney is being hailed as 'Wagatha Christie' by the internet, after accusing fellow WAG Vardy of selling stories about her.

In a sensational post on Instagram, the wife of Wayne Rooney claimed she had conducted her own five-month investigation after suspecting someone had been leaking her private Instagram stories to the press - an allegation that Vardy denies.

Vinnie said while the row was humourous, he believed the footballer's wives hadn't given much thought to how the public spat would affect their husband's and families.

“I think it’s quite funny, but what about the embarrassment to their husbands,” he said. “And no thought of the kids.”

The 54-year-old actor said his wife's death felt like being hit with a "sledgehammer" after she was told the cancer had spread to her brain on Christmas Eve.

Vinnie Jones has opened up about the moving letter his late wife Tayna wrote to their daughter before her untimely death in July this year following a six-year battle with cancer.

In his first television interview since her death, the 'Snatch' actor struggled to contain his emotions when reflecting on the letter that Tanya, whom he refers to as ‘Tans’, wrote to their daughter Kaley, 32.

“That [letter] said, ‘Don’t grieve, I will be waiting for you," he said.

Vinnie said his belief that he'll meet his wife again in the afterlife is helping him with his grief.

He said: "I’ve got something to look forward to...and she’s waiting. That’s what you deal with, that’s the best way to do it. That letter has made my daughter very strong. She’s now leading and taking up the reigns.”

Speaking about a card that Tanya had written to him, he said she wrote: “Vin, tomorrow something beautiful will happen. And in it [the letter] she wrote that something beautiful always happens up to her, she wakes up to me.’”

Tanya - who also had a heart transplant at the age of 21 - was treated for melanoma in 2013 but went on to fight three types of cancer before her death in July.
