Una Healy is reportedly fuming with ex-husband Ben Foden after his new wife Jackie appeared to throw shade at her online.
When Ben, 34, uploaded a throwback video on Instagram of himself singing on Sky show A League Of Their Own in front of a celebrity panel, including Spice Girl Emma Bunton, a follower commented: “I hope you told baby spice you’re married!!!!”
The rugby star replied saying the clip was before he met Jackie, but when another fan pointed out he was married to Una at the time, Jackie commented: “Who?”

Una, 38, is said to be feeling completely disrespected by Jackie’s comment as she thinks Ben, the father of her children Aoife, seven, and Tadhg, four, still has “a duty to protect her”.
A source told new magazine: “Una thinks Ben still has a duty to protect her and has a problem with the fact that it looks like Jackie has demeaned her in public.
“She’s confided in friends about how the lack of respect she feels from Ben has now really dragged her down.
“Una feels Ben needs to step up to the plate more – she’s the mother of his children after all and feels he shouldn’t be tolerating such public disrespect towards her.”
The former Saturdays singer is now reportedly keen to meet up with Jackie and confront her in person.
“Una says if Ben doesn’t have words with her, she will because he’s always got in the way of her having face-to-face talks in the past,” added the insider. “But she feels Ben will be adamant it won’t happen.”
It comes after Ben opened up about his amicable relationship with Una, admitting they were doing “what we can” to co-parent.
“When I’m in England I have them as often as possible. It’s quite tough being in America, but I had them for the whole of August,” he told new magazine in November.
Adding: “When I can have them, I do. I’d like to have them with me as much as possible.”
Una, who is now dating Irish hurler David Breen, split with Ben in July 2018 following allegations he cheated with PR girl Becky Milne. He married Jackie last August after a whirlwind romance, saying she had “swept me off my feet”.
In his marriage announcement post shared to Instagram, he wrote: “People will say we are mad or crazy or even fools, as @snackyjax and I had only been dating seriously for a little over 2 weeks before deciding to get married. But when someone like her comes in to your life, why would I wait?
“The people who needed to know, such as close family and friends were told before anyone else and they are happy for me including my beautiful X wife @unahealy who I love even more for her blessing.”
