Peter Andre breaks his silence after Rebekah Vardy admits ‘chipolata’ manhood claims were ‘untrue’

She claimed she was forced to make the comments

Peter Andre has defended his manhood after it was brought up in the Rebekah Vardy trial.

Rebekah was accused of describing Pete’s pecker as a “chipolata” in an interview in 2004.

At the Wagatha Christie trial with Coleen Rooney, the mum-of-five took to the stand to admit she regretted what she said.

But now Pete has had his say.

He said: “Do you know how hard it is to keep biting my lip on situations? But the way I look at it, most people saw in the jungle how an acorn turned into an oak so I think I’m okay.

“At least she has now admitted it wasn’t true. And was forced to say it.”

During the legal proceedings, the wife of Leicester player Jamie Vardy was questioned by Coleen’s lawyer.

As a result, he asked the model about the claimed sexual encounter with the Mysterious Girl singer.

Insisting that she respected people’s privacy, Rebekah was then shown a printout of the article.

It read: “Peter’s hung like a small chipolata, shaved, slobbery, lasts five minutes.”

But the way I look at it, most people saw in the jungle how an acorn turned into an oak so I think I’m okay.

The WAG was then asked if she thought it was “respectful” to share the information.

Rebekah replied: “I was forced into a situation by my ex-husband to do this and it is something that I deeply regret.”
