My my, time flies, doesn’t it? Yes, it’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! time already, and Rebekah Vardy is confirmed to be heading to the camp Down Under.
Rebekah Vardy, wife of Leicester footballer Jamie, is a WAG by all intents and purposes, so how will she handle roughing it in the jungle?
And where else have you heard her name before? Here’s everything you need to know about the latest addition to I’m A Celeb starting on Sunday, November 19 on ITV at 9pm.
Who is she?
Rebekah is the wife of Leicester footballer Jamie Vardy. The pair met in 2014 whilst she was working as a nightclub promoter working on Jamie’s birthday party, and they married in May 2016.
Rebekah and Jamie have two children together: Sofia, three, and 10-month-old Finlay. Rebekah also has two children, 11-year-old Megan and six-year-old Taylor, from previous relationships, whilst Jamie also has five-year-old Ella from his relationship with Emma Daggett.
To say Rebekah is a family person is an understatement – she even almost pulled out of her appearance on I’m A Celeb because she was worried she would miss her children too much.
Where have you seen her before?
Rebekah has become well-known and praised by fans for speaking out publicly on her troubled childhood after being assaulted by a family friend, and her struggles with postpartum depression.
As well as speaking out on such issues on her Instagram page, she also appeared on Loose Women to talk about both these issues.
She finished her appearance on the panel show with some inspiring advice for women and young girls going through something similar: ‘It’s never too late to talk about it. You can’t bottle it up because at some point it will affect your life.
‘I did feel like a failure, but now I feel like I’m a survivor.’
What’s her social media details?
What do we want to see?
Rebekah totally bossing all the disgusting food challenges.
‘I’m excited, it’s gonna be great. Am I scared of anything? Not at all.’ She said, so we have every faith that she can get covered in a million spiders and handle it like an absolute champ.
But, due to her open nature, we reckon Rebekah’s going to be quite the agony aunt in camp – she’ll see one crying celeb and those motherly instincts will kick in right away.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! kicks off on ITV on November 19 at 9pm.
