The Premier League’s top scorer, Jamie Vardy was due to get married at the start of Euro 2016 next summer but has changed the date due to his impressive form. He expects a call up from Roy Hodgson to feature for England
According to Daily Mail, his wedding to fiancee Becky was scheduled for June 2016 but earlier this season, as his goals brought international recognition, he conceded the risk was too great and the date should be brought forward.
‘I was due to get married bang on the start of the Euros,’ reveals Vardy. ‘The missus was on to me to move it. I thought it was fine. Then we moved it just to be on the safe side after I had my first call-up.
‘It was on a weekend, it’s now a midweek, which is not ideal for guests, but is just one of those things. May 25 is the new date, the week after the season finishes.’
Vardy made his England debut in a friendly against Ireland last summer, but it has been his form since then that has really made people stand up and take notice.
He is the clear leader in the Premier League top goalscorer charts with 12 (next best has seven) and he has also been named the Premier League’s player of the month for October.
