Rebekah Vardy has opened up about being sexually abused by a family friend at the age of 12.Rebekah - who has children Megan, 13, and Taylor, eight, from previous relationships and Sophia, four, and two-year-old Finley with husband Jamie Vardy - sought Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBD) to help her come to terms with the abuse.
She says she found the sessions very helpful in helping her separate her difficult past from her happy life now.
I still really struggle with it now and I really try and suppress how I feel because if I think about it too much I become really angry and really bitter.
Speaking on This Morning, she said: "After I had my little boy, I had a lot of CBT and it really helped me kind of close that Pandora's box and distinguish, or to lose the face of, the abuse, and it became something else.
"If I think about it, it almost becomes a character and that really helps me because it's separated my life today to what it was before...
"I still use that as a coping mechanism when I have a bad day."
But the former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! contestant will never understand why her mum didn't believe her allegations.
She said: "It's uncomprehendable (sic.), I still really struggle with it now and I really try and suppress how I feel because if I think about it too much I become really angry and really bitter.
"I've tried to leave that part of my life as far behind as physically possible to concentrate on the good that I have with my kids.
"But if I do think about it, I find it so difficult to understand and comprehend how a mother can disbelieve a child, irrespective of whether that child is having problems or has become a bit of a tearaway."
Viewers were moved by her courage...
