This story is over

Lincolnshire WAG and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Rebekah Vardy has revealed she tried to take her own life when she was younger.

The reality TV star opened up to fellow contestants Stanley Johnson and Iain Lee that when she was a teenager she tried to kill herself.

Throughout her teenage years she admitted having stuggles with mental health and also revealed she had ‘bad’ postnatal depression after giving birth to her second child six years ago.

This came after radio DJ Iain Lee commented on mental health on the show, explaining how he had had ‘suicidal thoughts in the past’.

Rebekah also explained on the show how she didn’t feel able to talk about it at that age and did not get any help.

She said on the ITV show: “I tried it when I was younger when I was 14.

“I was at that age.

“It was something that was pushed under the carpet and it had such a bad effect on me and I made such horrific decisions in life.”

I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here is on ITV1 every evening.
