Wife of Leicester City star,Rebekah Vardy has apologised in a court document for comparing Peter Andre’s penis to a miniature chipolata.
Her lawyers filed the 59-page document to the High Court as part of the Wagatha Christie legal showdown with Coleen Rooney.
The mother of five, 38, now married to Leicester City ace Jamie, made the unflattering comparison about the singer in an old interview.
Rebekah had spilled the beans in 2004 about a night with pop star Andre.
She said at the time: “I thought he was going to be a fantastic lover. Then he took his trousers off!
“He was the worst lover I’ve ever had. It wasn’t even worth the train fare.
“Peter was tiny. The smallest trouser equipment I’ve ever seen. It was like a miniature chipolata.”
A legal document filed to the court by her lawyers on Tuesday said Becky was “pressured” into the remark and “has apologised”.
The document says: “It is admitted that the Claimant gave a “kiss and tell” interview to The News of the World in 2004 when the Claimant was 22.
“The Claimant regrets having given this interview and has apologised to Mr Andre.
“The Claimant was in a difficult relationship with her ex-husband and felt pressurised by her ex-husband to give this story to the newspaper.”
Andre, 47, has never commented on the claims, but after the interview resurfaced he posted a picture of a man standing next to sausage as tall as him, quipping: “Now that’s a banger :)”
Becky is suing Coleen for libel for claiming that she leaked stories to the Press.
Her legal team’s formal ‘reply’ was issued ahead of last-minute peace talks between warring wags.
The flare-up started in October 2019 when Coleen, 34, told her millions of social media followers she had turned detective after suspecting stories were being leaked.
She revealed that she had blocked all but one account from her private Instagram feed.
Coleen said: “After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion.”
She claimed she then posted a string of false stories to see if they would be published, which they were.
An Instagram post detailed her detective work to identify the source of the leak.
It is hoped the forthcoming summit, which will be held at a neutral venue, will avert a costly five-day libel trial next Summer.
Both legal teams are set to hammer out an agreement on the mediator, the venue, and a date for face-to-face peace talks.
Becky wife of Leicester City ace Jamie, 33, will occupy one room with her lawyers.
Coleen whose hubby is ex-England and Manchester United legend Wayne, 34, will be with her team in another.
A third room will be used for face-to-face talks aimed at brokering a deal to avoid a five-day libel trial next year.
They have until February 8 to reach a truce or will have to face off at the High Court.
First, a judge ruled in Becky’s favour at a preliminary hearing on Coleen’s now infamous post in October 2019.
The post detailed her detective work to identify the source of the leak.
But Mr Justice Warby said the carefully considered message did not reveal “reasonable grounds” for suspicion, but directly pointed the finger at mum-of-five Becky.
