I’m A Celebrity… contestant ‘getting cold feet’ over leaving kids

Mum reportedly worried about being separated from her little ones

Ask almost any of the celebs who head off to the Jungle for I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here what they miss most and they’ll tell you the same thing.

OK, some of them might be tempted to say Hob Nobs, but most people will say their family first and foremost.

So you can hardly blame one potential contestant from feeling worried about being away from her family, and, specifically, her children.

That’s Rebekah Vardy’s concern, and it has almost stopped the 35 year old mum of four from taking up her spot on the celebrity show.

Rebekah, married to 30 year old Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy, is rumoured to have signed up for the ITV show, but The Sun reports that an insider has revealed her worries.

“She’s going in – but she nearly pulled out yesterday,” said the source.

“She’s really worried about leaving her kids behind and is really panicking about it.”

Rebekah has decided to continue with her plan to enter the jungle, but she’s put some measures in place to make sure she’s away from her children for as short a time as possible.

“She was about to pull out because she can’t bear the thought of being away from them for so long, however she has now arranged to fly them out too so that they are with her the minute she leaves the camp,” said The Sun’s source.

“Rebekah is going to be the last celeb to land in Australia because this has been such a last minute decision and she doesn’t want to be separated from her family any longer than necessary.”

Rebekah is mum to 10-month-old Finlay and Sofia, three, with Jamie, and she also has Megan, 11, and Taylor, six, from a previous relationship.

And while Rebekah may be finding the thought of leaving them difficult, it’s actually her kids who want her to go in the most.

“The only reason she agreed to do it in the end was because her kids begged her to do it,” reveals The Sun’s source. They’re so excited to see her on TV.”

We’re pretty excited too, so stick with it Rebekah!
