Coleen Rooney ‘sticks by’ Wagatha Christie post about Rebekah Vardy

Coleen Rooney says she “sticks by” the Instagram post about Rebekah Vardy in a trailer for a new documentary about the Wagatha Christie scandal.

The author and TV personality, 37, shocked the country when she turned amateur sleuth and accused her former friend and fellow WAG of leaking information from Instagram to The Sun newspaper in an explosive 2019 post.

In the trailer for the three-part documentary, she warned Vardy: “Don’t play games with a girl who can play better.”

“Someone on my personal account was informing The Sun newspaper about my private posts and stories, [I thought] I’m going to do something about it,” she said.

“I needed evidence, I had to set a trap.”

Rooney also revealed that 41-year-old Vardy sent her a message asking “what is this?”.

“I replied, ‘you know what this is’,” she said.

Rooney said she “never imagined” the issue would make its way to court.
