JAMIE Vardy has swapped his millionaire lifestyle for the Good Life during lockdown by tending his own vegetable patch – in a pair of £180 Gucci sandals.

The Leicester star was filmed by Wag Rebekah, 38, as he watered his strawberries and dug up his potatoes at the couple’s £2.5million eight bedroom property in rural Lincolnshire.

When the mum of five asked her hubby what he was doing as he pottered out of a greenhouse with a watering can, smiling Jamie, 33, replied: “Going green – planting my own stuff aren’t I.”

The former England ace also rears chickens in the grounds for eggs.

A source said: “Jamie loves his allotment.

“He grows his own vegetables and loves spending time on it with the kids.

“They have lots of chickens as well and used to have some Alpacas too.

“It’s not what people might think a Premier League footballer would do in his spare time, but Jamie’s used to doing things differently.”

The Vardys moved into the mansion, which boasts five reception rooms, an indoor pool, sauna, tennis court, gym and astro turf football pitch, in 2017 after fans repeatedly buzzed on the intercom at his old house asking for autographs.

His previous property became famous after Vardy hosted a party for his Leicester teammates on the day they won the Premier League title in May 2016.

During lockdown, I’m A Celebrity contestant Rebekah has also cut her hubby’s hair, joking he was lucky not to have lost an ear.

She also donated £10,000 to buy 2,000 sets of scrubs for medics in Leicestershire battling the coronavirus epidemic.

Jamie’s other unusual hobbies include making his own sloe gin from berries he picks on family walks.
