I was shopping for baby clothes and wanted to throw myself off a Dubai mall – I think I’ve got PTSD, says Becky Vardy


Becky Vardy has revealed she considered jumping from the top floor of a shopping mall in Dubai while pregnant after being publicly accused by Coleen Rooney of leaking stories.

Becky exclusively tells The Sun: “I think my lowest point was when I was in Dubai trying to get a flight to come home early from holiday.

“I knew what I was coming back to — I just knew there was going to be spiteful hatred everywhere.

“Jamie and I were in a shopping mall at the time buying baby clothes, and I just thought, ‘I don’t want to go through this, I don’t want to live like this’.

“For a split second, I said to Jamie, ‘I feel like I just want to jump off this top floor’.”

She said it was “devastating” for him to see her go through it.

Becky reveals she has twice been hospitalised with mental health issues since the Wagatha Christie row erupted in October 2019.

She has seen a string of counsellors and was put on medication to alleviate her anxiety. Becky was subsequently diagnosed with depression and put on anti-depressants – which she is now off.

Sipping a glass of water, she says: “I was having serious panic attacks.  I had kidney stones which were brought on by stress, and I just felt like my life was falling apart.  Physically, emotionally and mentally it was exhausting.

“It was draining. I had to go to hospital a couple of times because they were really worried about my mental wellbeing.

“And since the court case, I think I’m probably suffering with PTSD — I feel physically sick when I talk about the trial and what happened, and I have nightmares. I haven’t gone to get a diagnosis yet but I do know I probably need some more therapy. It’s been a horrible time.”

But during her interview, she extended an olive branch to Coleen despite losing their libel battle, saying: “I’d take her for a coffee.”

She says: “If I saw her in the street tomorrow, I’d ask her if she wanted to go for a Caffe Nero.

“Life is too short to be resentful and hold grudges and be bitter towards someone. That is not me. I am not that person.”

However the wife of striker Jamie blasts the trial judge, Mrs Justice Karen Steyn — and says she was “slut-shamed” and bullied in the harrowing court hearing.
