Rebekah Vardy has slammed “disgusting” professional footballers for breaking coronavirus restrictions by attending parties in lockdown.

The 38 year old wife of Jamie Vardy said her husband has been busy homeschooling their children, while some footballers broke lockdown rules to party.

Rebekah, who’s skating partner was rushed to hospital after slicing his face open recently, is mum to Megan, 13, and nine year old Taylor, from previous relationships, as well as Sofia, five, Finley, three, and one year old Olivia, with hubby Jamie.

And, as she gears up for the launch of this year’s Dancing on Ice, Becky has revealed her hubby is a very talented maths teacher.

She said: “Jamie’s teaching maths. He’s teaching algebra and telling them the square root of whatever. I don’t know the square root of anything.

“He has the most incredible mathematical brain. Honestly, you would never imagine it. People think footballers are thick, and they’re stupid, and they don’t have a brain. But Jamie is so intelligent in so many different ways.

“He’s really shy, until you get to know him. He’s just down to earth and normal. We want to keep our kids grounded and in the real world. They have to work for everything they’ve got.”

Rebekah then slammed professional footballers who thing they’re “above the law” by going to parties in lockdown.


She told The Sun Online: “I think it’s a privilege to be in the position that they find themselves in. Yes, they work hard, but at the same time they need to set an example.

“It’s not going to go down well with Joe Bloggs if a footballer is having a lockdown party and off seeing his mates, while he can’t see his family.

“I think the behaviour of certain people has not shone football in a good light.”

Rebekah, who recently admitted she’s worried about tweeting herself on DOI, insisted that not all footballers are the same.

She said: “You see a couple of them and you think they’re all doing it. But they’re not.

“There’s a lot of international players that have families they’ve not seen for months on end, that are in different countries, that are separated.

“Just because there’s a couple of Covidiots, as everyone likes to call them, doesn’t make them all the same. And we shouldn’t tar them all with the same brush.”

While her kids have been learning maths from their dad, Rebekah has been training for DOI.

She revealed: “I’ve had to learn how to listen, which hasn’t come easy. Before he’s even finished a sentence, I’m trying to do what he says. I think I’ve managed to master the art of patience. I’m all or nothing.”
