Rebekah Vardy thanks ‘brilliant’ emergency services after fire at family home

Rebekah Vardy has thanked firefighters after a fire destroyed the gym at the family’s mansion.

The wife of the Leicester City footballer Jamie Vardy praised the “brilliant Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service” after they were called to the home on Thursday afternoon, and posted a picture of her two children inside a fire engine.

An electrical fault started the blaze in an outbuilding on the Vardys’ estate near Grantham, Lincolnshire, according to reports.

Vardy, 40, wrote on Instagram: “Every cloud and all that.

“Thankfully no one was hurt… Buildings and contents are replaceable and the kiddies enjoyed the fire engines.”

Police were also sent to the house but there were no reports of injuries.

Last year Vardy made headlines across the world when she lost to Coleen Rooney in the so-called Wagatha Christie libel trial.

Vardy unsuccessfully sued Rooney after she accused her of leaking “false stories” about her private life to the press.

In October a judge ruled that Vardy must pay 90% of Rooney’s costs, which ran to more than £1.5m.

The libel case, nicknamed “the war of the wags”, has since been adapted for stage and screen.

A two-part film starring Michael Sheen, based on court transcripts, was released by Channel 4 in December, and a play opened in the West End in November.
