Inside Jamie Vardy’s house during Leicester City’s title winning celebrations
Danny Simpson has lifted the lid on Leicester City's incredible title-winning celebrations at Jamie Vardy's house.
The Foxes were crowned champions when Tottenham Hotspur were held to a 2-2 draw away at Chelsea in May 2016, one day after they had failed to beat Manchester United to win the title. As the match ended, the Sky Sports broadcast switched to footage from inside Vardy's home, showing the squad celebrating wildly as the full-time whistle blew at Stamford Bridge.
Over six years on from Leicester's title win, former full-back Simpson has revealed details about the celebratory night at the Vardy household.

Speaking on the Undr The Cosh podcast, he recalled: "Vards texted us all and said ‘Lads look, we could win this tonight, all get to my house.’ I’m so glad he did because it wouldn’t have been the same. Imagine just being at home watching Monday Night Football.
"Everyone just drove to his next day. We still had our night on the Sunday but all drove to his on the Monday. I’d say 98% (of the squad) all there."

Asked what time he got to Vardy's house, he added: "I probably got there at about six o’clock. There was all cameras there, it had obviously filtered through.
"It was the maddest, just the way the game went, half-time losing, then they came back and it was like it was meant to be and we were all meant to be there together with each other."
Spurs had been 2-0 up at half-time at Chelsea, a result that would have meant Leicester would still need to win their next match to seal the title, before goals from Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard earned a dramatic draw.
Simpson even admitted he is looking forward to doing it all again with his former team-mates as he continued: "What a night, there were a lot of tears, emotions and I mean it was a lot man. I’ll never forget the moments of playing with them lads and I can’t wait for the reunion."
The United academy graduate spent four years with Leicester after signing in 2014, making 30 league appearances during their title-winning campaign. Overall, he turned out 133 times for the Foxes before leaving the club in 2019.
