Peter Andre says he has been the "butt of all jokes" for 15 years as he hit back at Rebekah Vardy's chipolata jibe.

The 49-year-old Mysterious Girl singer has waded into the High Court "Wagatha Christie" libel battle between Mrs Vardy and Coleen Rooney.

During the ongoing court case, Mrs Vardy was asked about a 2004 kiss-and-tell interview, in which she described a sexual encounter with Andre, that carried the headline: "Peter's hung like a small chipolata, shaved, slobbery, lasts five minutes."

In an Instagram video, Andre, who was seen wearing a dressing gown, hit back at the jibe - and said there would be "absolute outrage" if the tables had been turned.

"Yes, now she has gone to court and admitted that the story was made up and she did that because her ex-husband forced her to do it, fair enough," he said.

"But put that all aside and just think how that feels, if a man, or if I had said this about her anatomy, or a man said something about a woman's anatomy, and made up something saying... I dunno, whatever, you can use your imagination, saying something very unflattering, there would be absolute outrage.

"But because it has been said about me it's been the butt of all jokes, I've taken it for 15 years."

I Call True: Fair play to him he has had to live with that for 15 years and as he rightly says if it had been a man make a similar comment about a woman they would have been cancelled.

The problem is his defence of it at the time (and Pricey's addition to it) were just crass and added to the fuel IMO https://bit.ly/3PgU2IV

He does make a very valid point turn the sexes round in this and it would have been reported on very very differently

No way can Andre be victim shamed in this. He has no way of proving this awful woman wrong without further embarrassment to himself and his family.

It must have been hard BUT he kinda made his own bed when he hooked up with Pricey and did the TV show where he was made the butt of all the jokes there as well
