Celebrity Big Brother star Vinnie Jones has spoken about his fears for his 18-year-old son Aaron – who’s serving in Afghanistan.

The footballer-turned-actor has played the tough guy in films Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, Gone In Sixty Seconds and X-Men: The Last Stand.

He told Hello! magazine: “Aaron’s been in the Army for two years now, but him going to Afghanistan is one of those things you put to the back of your mind.

“Although I don’t think about any of the bad things that can happen, it still turns your tummy.”

Vinnie reckons his son will be able to handle the hostilities of war.

The actor said: “He’s been brought up around guns and fishing rods.

“I grew up with blokes around me and he loves all that too. In a lot of ways, he’s identical to me – although I should think he’s a lot fitter!”
