Peter Andre has spoken out about Rebekah Vardy's past comments on his 'manhood' in an old interview, after it was discussed in her High Court trial against Coleen Rooney this week.
Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney are currently in the middle of a costly legal battle stemming from Coleen's 2019 Wagatha Christie 'sting operation' in which she infamously claimed that Rebekah's account had been leaking stories about her to the press.
Kicking off the trial this Tuesday (10 May), Rebekah Vardy was questioned on scathing comments she had made about Peter Andre in a 2004 interview with The News Of The World.
In the early Noughties interview, Rebekah had been asked about her night with the 'Mysterious Girl' singer, when she said: "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."
Speaking about the incident in court on Tuesday, Rebekah said that she had since apologised for the remark, insisting that she was 'forced' to say it.
After hearing that her comments were brought up again years later, Peter Andre took to social media, breaking his silence on the hurtful interview for the first time.
"Do you know how hard it is to keep biting my lip on situations?" he told his Instagram followers.
"The way I look at it, most people saw in the jungle how an acorn turned into an oak, so I think I'm OK.
"At least she has now admitted it wasn't true and was forced to say it."
Speaking to the court, Rebekah claimed: "I was forced into a situation by my ex-husband to do this story.
"It's something I deeply regret and something that's very much part of my past. It's not nice to read. I have dealt with this.
"To me, this is mud-slinging. I was always threatened with mud-slinging by Mrs Rooney's team.
"I went through a terrible, terrible relationship. It was horrible, it was abusive, and I was forced into a situation.
"Yes, it's horrible. Would I ever do something like that again? Not in a million years. It wasn't nice. But I was faced with consequences, and the consequences of not doing it were much worse."
Rebekah Vardy is suing Coleen Rooney for libel following Coleen's refusal to take back claims that Rebekah had leaked stories about her to The Sun.
The court case is expected to last for seven days.
