Rebekah Vardy thanks ‘brilliant’ emergency services after fire at family home | Ents & Arts News
Rebekah Vardy has thanked firefighters after a fire destroyed the gym at the family’s mansion.
Leicester City footballer Jamie Vardy’s wife praised the “excellent Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service” after they were called to the home on Thursday afternoon, and posted a picture of her two children partying in a fire truck.
According to reports, an electrical failure caused a fire in a Vardys estate annex building near Grantham, Lincolnshire.
Vardy, 40, wrote on Instagram: “All the clouds and all that.
“Thankfully no one was hurt… The buildings and furniture inside were replaceable and the kids loved the fire truck.”
Police were also sent to the home but there were no reports of injuries.
Last year, Vardy made headlines around the world when she lost to Coleen Rooney in a match called Wagatha Christie’s defamation trial.
Vardy sued Rooney but failed after she accused her of revealing “false stories” about her private life to the press.
In October one the judge ruled that Vardy had to pay 90% of Rooney’s costs, which amounted to more than £1.5 million.
The defamation case, nicknamed the “war of spoilers,” has since been adapted for the stage and screen.
A two-part film starring Michael Sheen, based on court transcripts, has been released by Channel 4 in Decemberand a open play in the West End in November.
