Rebekah Vardy, the wife of Leicester City star Jamie Vardy of the English Premier League, opened up about her upbringing and what it was like growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness.

Vardy talked about her childhood as part of a documentary for England’s Channel 4. She took on the role of a reporter and interviewed several other former Jehovah’s Witnesses who have claimed to have had harrowing experiences as a member of the Christian denomination.

The 41-year-old TV personality described the faith as a “cult” in an interview with The Mail on Sunday.

“People are manipulated, brainwashed, it’s coercive behavior and it is handed down from generation to generation,” Vardy told the outlet. “Once you’re in it, it’s so hard to see the bigger picture, which is that it’s wrong and immoral.

“I spent my childhood fearful, being told we were going to die in Armageddon if we didn’t pray enough. I felt I had to constantly strive for perfection so that God would not be angry with me.

“Jehovah’s Witnesses call someone who’s not a Witness a ‘worldly person’. I am the worst kind of worldly person because I have had the courage — along with all the people brave enough to talk to me for my documentary — to speak out against this religion and say it’s dangerous.”
