Wagatha Christie: Latest round in Rebekah Vardy’s High Court libel battle with Coleen Rooney


The wife of former England star Wayne Rooney claimed fellow footballer’s wife Mrs Vardy shared fake stories she had posted on her personal Instagram account with The Sun newspaper.

Mrs Rooney said she planted three stories about her travelling to Mexico to “see what this gender selection is all about”, returning to TV and the basement flooding in her new house.

She then wrote on Instagram and Twitter: “For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories.

“I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account.”

In January, the High Court ruled the post “clearly” identified Mrs Vardy as “being guilty of the serious and consistent breach of trust” Mrs Rooney alleges.

The court heard Mrs Vardy and Mrs Rooney had agreed for a “stay” of the proceedings until February so there could be “one final attempt to resolve the matter without the need for a full trial”.

On Tuesday, another preliminary hearing will deal with the timetable to a possible trial and any disputes over the parties’ legal costs.
