Despite reportedly almost pulling out because of her kids, Rebekah is apparently only doing the show for them. 

A source told The Sun: “The only reason she agreed to do it in the end was because her kids begged her to do it. They’re so excited to see her on TV.”

“She’s going in – but she nearly pulled out yesterday. She’s really worried about leaving her kids behind and is really panicking about it.”

Family feud 

The couple are subject to a family rift.

Her mum and stepdad also stayed away, according to the Daily Mail.

Asked why they’d failed to attend her mum Alison Nicholson said: ‘We’d rather not say why even though it’s obvious people are now going to be wondering why the bride’s mother isn’t at her 34-year-old daughter’s wedding.” 


Rebekah has been the victim of vile online trolls in the past, and has appeared on Channel 5 series Celeb Trolls: We’re Coming To Get you.
