Peter Andre is said to be considering legal action to block Rebekah Vardy’s claim that his time as a rogue has been compared to a ‘chipolata’ being created again.
During the High Court Wagatha Christie defamation trial between Vardy and Coleen Rooney, Ms Vardy was asked about her kiss-and-tell interview in which she claimed she had tried with the former music star pop in 2001.
Mr Andre, 49, was reportedly upset when statements made in the News Of The World in 2004 were reopened and he was given no warning that they would be published. detailed in Ms. Vardy’s trial.
And a source claims the Mysterious Girl singer has no recollection of a late-night contact with Ms Vardy, 40, at a hotel in Buckinghamshire.
A source told The Mail: ‘Pete doesn’t remember meeting her, never mind anything else.
“At the time of the article, he was young, he didn’t have children and it didn’t matter much.
“He was beaten up by his friends, but they knew the chipolata slur was the opposite of the truth.
“But now he’s a father and has a wife and he doesn’t think that’s true. He is considering legal action against Rebekah.”
The insider added that he is yet to decide whether he will get over it, ‘but he is very upset’.
And opening up about the issue of appearing on Loose Woman, Andre wittily spoke about the ‘elephant in the room’ before saying he was fed up with it being raised again.

He told the panel: ‘Actually it’s not something that has been said, because we all say stupid things. That’s because it’s repeated over and over again, at some point you’ll be “OK”.
”It’s not just that. OK, we all say stupid things, everyone does. I’m sure I’ve said a lot of stupid things in my life. ‘
He also raised whether comments made about a woman’s anatomy would cause outrage.
Using Instagram to address the claims directly, he continues to address his concerns by speaking directly to his followers, adding:
” You know some of you will go, ‘oh get over it, don’t say anything’. You have to understand, what’s even worse is that it’s going to the Supreme Court, and lawyers are taking it out… and it’s being brought up again. And the only one who sat there and took blow after hit about it was me.

” And I’m just going to laugh about it for a moment, but think about how it would feel if it went the other way, that’s all I’m saying.
”Okay, yeah, I think we all know by now it’s just a made up story, well, well. But it’s a little more serious than that.
” And I think it’s unfair that things like this can happen over and over and we talk about all sorts of things, about mental health, about kindness and about all that, and nothing seems to have changed. So you know, you’re gone. ‘
But due to the 15 years that have passed since the claim was made, Mr Andre cannot sue News UK, the company that owns the now defunct News Of The World, because of the victims of defamation. only 12 months from publication date to begin proceedings, and Vardy’s recent comments in court are also protected against legal action.
However, Andre’s attorneys can ask her to never claim again.
High Court Judge Justice Steyn is reviewing evidence from a defamation trial in which Ms Vardy is suing Ms Rooney, wife of former England star Wayne, for allegedly leaking stories about her.
