Rebekah Vardy has slammed lockdown rule breakers, specifically referencing footballers who have been heading to parties.
The Dancing On Ice star pointed out that they ‘need to set an example’ by following the restrictions as coronavirus cases are still at a high rate in the UK.
She said: ‘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.’
She added to The Sun: ‘I think the behaviour of certain people has not shone football in a good light.’
However, she also pointed out that it’s only a minority of players who are flouting the rules, and that she feels for international players who haven’t seen their families in months.
The mum-of-five went on to praise her husband Jamie Vardy as he home schools the children – Megan, 15, Taylor, 10, Sofia, six, Finlay, three, and Olivia, one – while schools are closed.
Rebekah, who welcomed Olivia last January, has most recently been training for her appearance on Dancing On Ice.
However, it’s been an eventful few weeks, after she put her pro partner Andy Buchanan in hospital after slicing his face open with an ice skate blade.
Thankfully, he’s been recuperating, but Becky admitted that she laughed after the accident, revealing she thought he was joking at first.
‘I actually thought he was messing around, to begin with, because he does like a bit of a joke,’ the 38-year-old told Metro.co.uk and other press.
‘The last thing he said to me was, “Don’t kick me in the face” and I was like “Why would you say that? Why have you just said that you just gonna jinx us?”
‘So we did what we were doing, and he nearly dropped me and I was like oh s**t what was going on? And I looked at him and he was holding his face and I said stop messing about and I laughed.’
‘He removed his hand from his face and there was blood everywhere,’ she continued. ‘I hate the sight of blood. Five kids and I can’t deal with blood, I nearly passed out.’
