Former footballer turned Hollywood actor Vinnie Jones has become a teacher - to help Doncaster holidaymakers brush up on their Spanish before heading on their summer hols.

The soccer hardman has filmed a video aimed at Brits travelling abroad this summer.

The set of online tutorials provides useful phrases and has been launched by mobile network Three to help prepare holidaymakers ahead of their holidays this summer.

Three’s Feel At Home service will allow its customers to call, text and use the internet in Spain at no extra cost from April 1.

The film sees Vinnie teach 16 helpful questions and sayings to allow the 13 million Brits who will travel to Spain this summer to get to grips with the basic local dialect.

The Hollywood star shows people how to make it from la playa to el bar, whether you’re flying off to Spain, Mallorca, Tenerife or Ibiza for a getaway.

If you’re looking for the beach, do not fear, Vinnie’s your man: “Cuánto por su mejor hidropedal mi amigo?”

And if you’re looking for love, he’s also got it covered, “Podrías darme tu número?”

Vinnie said: “I’ve holidayed in Spain for years and you can’t beat it for sun, sea, sand and a few sangrias. Along the way I’ve managed to pick up a bit of the local lingo so it’s great to be able to share some with my fellow Brits and help them out as they prepare for their holiday. Hopefully with this and the new offering from Three, they’re going to have a blinding trip this year.”

Tom Malleschitz, marketing director at Three, said: “Spain is one of the most popular holiday destinations for Brits and is a forthcoming addition to our list of countries where you can use your phone abroad at no extra cost. We therefore thought it would be great to give them a helping hand learning the lingo by recruiting one of our most famous Brits, Vinnie Jones, to give us all a fun Spanish lesson. So now customers can order a drink or take a selfie in Spanish before they take the picture and post it on Facebook!”
