BBC 5 Live commentator apologises to Rebekah Vardy

Share article:

C 5 Live commentator Alan Green has apologised for his "childminder" joke about Rebekah Vardy.

The sports presenter was covering the match between Leicester City, who Rebekah's husband Jamie Vardy plays for and Crystal Palace on Saturday (16.12.17) when he quipped that Jamie "has got his childminder back from the jungle", after Rebekah returned from Australia, where she was shooting "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!".

Rebekah slammed Alan on Twitter, calling him "pathetic" and adding "must be desperate for more listeners!"

Alan later tried to claim that he was simply praising both Rebekah and the show.

He said: "By the way I think some people on social media took offence at what I was saying about Jamie Vardy and his wife Rebekah Vardy in relation to "I'm a Celebrity".

"I certainly didn't mean any offence so I apologise to you if you felt that any was meant.

"I was just trying to reflect the fact that I love the programme and really enjoyed Rebekah's part in it and the other jungle celebrities. It's a heck of a show."

Meanwhile, Rebekah, 35, recently called reading about claims she had bullied Iain Lee on "I'm A Celebrity", the "most horrific experience".

The star has admitted she found it "absolutely heartbreaking" when she was booted out of the Australian jungle only to be informed about harsh allegations made against her.

She said: "It was the most horrific experience. Coming out and having my dad next to me and my eldest daughter and to be told what had been portrayed in the media and on social media.

"It was heartbreaking for me, absolutely heartbreaking.

"I struggled to deal with it for quite a while. I still struggle to deal with it now."
