Rebekah Vardy’s first marriage to Mark Godden – diva demands and bitter feud

Before Rebekah Vardy married footballer Jamie in 2016 she had been married twice.

Rebekah, who regularly appears on panel shows like ITV’s Loose Women, is currently appearing on Dancing On Ice.

10 years before meeting Jamie, Rebekah was married to electrician Mark Godden.

She was just 18 when she met Mark, then aged 21, in a local pub in Oxfordshire where she was working as a barmaid, and he was with a darts team.

They embarked on a whirlwind romance which involved getting married very quickly.

Mark claimed in an interview with the Mirror in 2017 that they became engaged after Rebekah spotted a ring in a magazine and told him: “I want that. Buy it for me.”

He claimed: “That’s how we got engaged. There was no romantic moment of me getting down on one knee and proposing.

“She liked the look of this £500 gold band with three stones and I bought it for her All she wanted was her big day.”

Rebekah and Mark reportedly spend £7,000 on their wedding in 2001, which saw them tie the knot on a beach in Mexico.

However, their relationship lasted only six months. They officially divorced in 2003.

Speaking to Daily Mail at the time, she said: "I just wanted someone to look after me. I knew it wasn’t love."

Since the relationship ended, Mark has claimed Rebekah “cheated” on him during their marriage. Rebekah vehemently denies this claim.

The pair now have a bitter feud, with Mark telling The Mirror when she appeared on I’m A Celebrity: “While I don’t want to see her win it, although she’d love to, I want her to go through hell.”

Godden went on to say the pair had the perfect wedding, but accused Rebekah of “changing” just weeks later.
