What has Rebekah said about her ex-husband?

Rebekah previously revealed that she divorced her ­second husband while he was in jail for killing two people in a car crash.

In a Sun on Sunday interview, the I’m A Celeb star spoke for the first time of her three marriages and the abuse she says she suffered at the hands of her second husband, Steve Clarke.

Brave Becky insisted: “I was lucky to get out when I did.”

She decided to set the record straight on her past before entering the Aussie jungle for the ITV show.

She said: “I know marrying three times makes me sound like Zsa Zsa Gabor, but after a difficult childhood I made some stupid mistakes and went out with some real-life snakes!”

What has Rebekah Vardy said about being sexually assaulted?

The footballer’s wife offered an emotional account of how she had been sexually assaulted as a teenager when appearing on Loose Women in October 2017.

Speaking to panellists Ruth Langsford, Nadia Sawalha and Janet Street-Porter, she told of how she was assaulted in her “early teens”.

“It was someone quite close to me but not a member of my family. I had conversations with numerous members of my family about it but they persuaded not to take it any further,” she said.

“They said it would not be beneficial to report it. I didn’t tell anyone outside the family about it.”

Rebekah said the abuse was one of the reasons she left home at 16.
