The 41-year-old star - who is married to Leicester City footballer Jamie Vardy - has previously opened up about the alleged sexual abuse she suffered as a young girl and she will share her experience growing up as a Jehovah's Witness while also dealing with childhood bullying.

As reported by the Daily Mirror newspaper, new Channel 4 documentary 'Rebekah Vardy: The Jehovah's Witnesses and Me' will see her front the show telling her own story as well as exploring other people's traumatic experiences.

The broadcaster said: "This film shows a side to one of the UK's most famous women that has not been told before."

The programme is set to air on May 16, and comes 10 months after Rebekah lost her Wagatha Christie libel case against Coleen Rooney.

She wasn't keen on going on television with a project based on the case, while the pitch from Channel 4 has offered an interesting option.

An insider told the publication: "After the court case, she was offered lots of TV things about the Wagatha Christie case and did not want to engage.

"Then Channel 4 got in touch with this project they had been planning for a while, looking for someone to front it.

"She was very keen and it all started from there. It's a Panorama-style documentary, very serious."

Meanwhile, it's said the film will feature some "harrowing" accounts from people she speaks to.

The source added: "When she interviews people, their stories are harrowing and her own story is a hard one as well.

"It is a very different Rebekah from the one people think they know."

Rebekah previously revealed she sought Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBD) to help come to terms with her abuse and found the sessions very helpful in helping her separate her difficult past from her happy life now.

Speaking on 'This Morning', she said: "After I had my little boy, I had a lot of CBT and it really helped me kind of close that Pandora's box and distinguish, or to lose the face of, the abuse and it became something else.

"If I think about it it almost becomes a character and that really helps me because it's separated my life today to what it was before and I still use that as a coping mechanism when I have a bad day."
