Rebekah Vardy – Jamie Vardy’s wife (Leicester)

Perhaps one of the most famous partners of a player in English football, in large part due to her involvement in the Wagatha Christie scandal back in 2022. 

Coleen Rooney’s accusations that the wife of Leicester City star Jamie, was leaking posts from her private Instagram account to The Sun and the line ‘It’s Rebekah Vardy’s account – sparked a media storm between the pair.

Vardy sued Rooney for libel and the case came to a halt in May 2022 when the court dismissed her claim insisting that the statements by the wife of Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney were substantially true.

She was left with a £3m court fee, but back in December she said she no longer cares about the trial and ‘knows the truth’.

Vardy wrote: ‘I certainly didn’t expect what became known as the ‘Wagatha Christie’ trial. If you care, you’ll know the details. If you don’t, I’ll spare you: thinking about it is a total waste of time and energy. All I’ll say is that I know the truth, as do many others.’

Rebekah has five children, three of which are fathered by Jamie, who also another child from a prior relationship.  

Former Premier League title winner, Jamie, is now 37, and approaching the end of his football career. 

However, he is still ruthless in front of goal and scored 20 goals in all competitions — including 18 in the Championship – as he prepares to take to the top flight one more time. 

Before Leicester’s relegation last season, he had scored 136 goals in 307 games – putting him 15th on the list of all-time top scorers since the Premier League’s inception.
