Rebekah Vardy says she’d rather husband Jamie make the Champions League than win Dancing on Ice

But the 38-year-old – who returns to the ice tonight – said she is having the time of her life and that dance partner Andy Buchanan is now like extended family. 

Showing her loyalty to Jamie’s Leicester City team, she said: “I’d rather Jamie finished in the top four than me win Dancing On Ice. It’s not about me.

“I’ve missed going to the football so much. It is a huge part of my life and I miss being able to be there to support Jamie.”

Becky made the admissions on Instagram. She also told how her husband Jamie is actually a better dancer.

And she said the programme has made her take stock of what really matters to her most – her family. 

Jamie is a Leicester City striker

Opening up on social media, she said: “I decided to do DOI because I wanted to see how far I could push myself out of my comfort zone. It was a challenge. I loved every minute of it. It was harder than I thought but I’ve had the most amazing time so far.

“My phone is now filled with old Torvill and Dean routines for inspiration. So far Friends has been my favourite routine. It was so much fun. But I’d love to dance to the Greatest Showman.”

But it’s not all been plain sailing. When asked if she’s still able to enjoy a drink on Saturdays, she said: “God, no! I don’t think I would know when to stop and then I would be a mess. Never a good thing to be swung around by your ankles the next day. Plus our call times on a Sunday are horrific.”

On dancing with Andy, she added: “Andy is an amazing human being and incredibly supportive as is his wife Jane who I absolutely adore. They will be like extended family now.”

While revealing Jamie’s own off-pitch moves, she said: “Who is the best dancer? Jamie! He just doesn’t care. Whereas I get embarrassed.”

Becky also admitted that one of the hardest things about being on the DOI show has been being away from the kids. 

She said: “I feel the mum guilt every time I leave. I don’t think that ever changes whatever you are doing. But the kids love watching and that’s the main thing. I’m so proud to be their mum and I love them so much.”
