Born in Hertfordshire, England, Jones represented and captained the Welsh national football team, having qualified via a Welsh grandparent. He also previously played for Chelsea and Leeds United. As a member of the "Crazy Gang", Jones won the 1988 FA Cup Final with Wimbledon. Jones appeared in the 7th and final series of UK gameshow Celebrity Big Brother finishing in 3rd place behind Dane Bowers and Alex Reid.
