Denise Van Outen defends DOI’s Rebekah Vardy after ‘hard time’ following Coleen dispute

Dancing on Ice: Rebekah Vardy discusses being ‘nervous’

In 2019, Coleen Rooney, 34, said she believed stories had been leaked about her personal life to The Sun newspaper and pointed the finger at Rebekah Vardy, 38. In a social media post at the time, the wife of Wayne Rooney, claimed she had changed her Instagram page’s privacy settings to ensure that posts she had been sharing were only visible to one account, which belongs to Rebekah. The content in these posts, she claimed, were then leaked to the press.

I take people at face value and she’s been lovely to me

After publicly shaming Jamie Vardy’s wife, who was pregnant at the time, the latter hit back and denied all allegations. She was also forced to defend herself against trolls on social media.

Speaking exclusively to, Denise said the Dancing on Ice hopeful reached out to her “three times a day” after she injured her shoulder on the show and insisted Rebekah isn’t the image some people have portrayed of her.

She said: “I tell you who has been absolutely lovely, because I know she gets a little bit of a hard time from people, is Rebekah Vardy.

“What a lovely girl! I’m not joking she has messaged me like three times a day to see if I’m alright.

“She has even offered to get my food for me and drinks and she’s just so nice.

“I’ve got to know her a little bit on this show and yeah she’s lovely.”

Denise went on to insist she didn’t pay attention to peoples’ perception of Rebekah, adding: “I take people at face value and she’s been lovely to me.”

Praising her first performance on the ice, she added: “She was really good!”

Denise has since left the competition after an MRI test determined she had three bone fractures.

Despite her injury, the singer bravely performed with her show partner Matt Evers in week two, but admitted she was in pain throughout the routine.

At the time, host Holly Willoughby said it was hard to watch her struggle on the ice with her injured shoulder.

She added of the support she received from the presenter and her co-stars: “I have to say they have all been lovely.

“I can’t say enough how lovely they’ve been.

“She was lovely, Holly yeah, obviously we’ve all had to social distance so she said, ‘I wish I could hug you’ but we can’t.”

The theatre star announced she had left the competition in an Instagram post this week.

The mother-of-two shared a picture of her pulling a shocked face as she pointed at her injured arm in a cast, alongside partner Matt.

As part of a lengthy statement in view of her 510,000 followers, she wrote: “Just over a week ago I had a nasty fall and injured my shoulder.

“I managed to skate my first dance with @themattevers on the live show through a gritted smile because the pain was unbearable.”

The West End star added after undergoing a MRI scan, the result showed she had three bone fractures as well as a partial dislocation.

She added: “I won’t be able to do any lifts, tricks or solo skating on the show due to my injury.

“I’m going to bail out gracefully with my DOI bling sling.”

Rebekah still remains in the competition with her skate partner Andy Buchanan.

Dancing on Ice continues tonight at 6pm on ITV.
