Rebekah Vardy Shares What She Actually Said To Coleen After Discovering Wagatha Post

The ‘Wagatha Christie’ libel trial between Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney came to an end last week, with Rebekah losing her case against the fellow WAG.

Rebekah, 40, and Coleen, 36, were involved in a High Court libel battle for seven days in the hopes of ending the 'Wagatha Christie' case once and for all.

After enduring the heavily-publicised trial, Rebekah will now be featured in an interview this evening, 3 August, at 7.00pm on TalkTV where she will clear up what actually happened between the pair. Check out the clip below:

Rebekah has now reflected on her reaction after discovering Coleen’s infamous ‘It’s . . . Rebekah Vardy’s account’ social media post during an interview with The Sun.

Vardy, who lost the libel case, revealed that when the message was posted, her ‘phone imploded’.

“I had a missed call from a withheld number, but then she [Coleen] messaged me and said: ‘I’ve been trying to call you’.

She then revealed that her initial response to the message was: “I picked up the phone and called her and basically said, ‘What the f*** is this?’

“Her [Coleen’s] response was quite rude, quite harsh, and she basically just said, ‘You know what this is’."

“And at that point I really didn’t know what it was. It was like, 'No, surely this can’t be real; no one would do that'.

Elsewhere in the interview with TalkTV, Rebekah broke down in tears as she spoke to presenter Kate McCann about losing the case and the £3 million legal bill she has been ordered to pay.

Vardy, who is married to footballer Jamie Vardy, once again argued that she was innocent and denied leaking stories to the press about fellow her fellow WAG.

In the preview for the episode, Vardy can be heard telling the host: “I'll say it until I'm blue in the face, I did not do it.”

She adds: “I feel let down by a lot of people, a lot of things but most importantly I feel let down by the legal system.”

The trial between the two women began after a viral social media post in October 2019 was posted by Rooney, who claimed she had carried out a 'sting operation' to uncover who had been leaking 'false stories' about her private life to the media.

In her post, Rooney, who is married to former Manchester United player Wayne Rooney, accused Vardy of leaking the stories, after posting three fake stories to her private Instagram account for only Vardy to see as bait.

Rooney’s social media accusation shocked the world, and comparisons to best-selling crime author Agatha Christie were rife. 

Her post read: "I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s ……….Rebekah Vardy’s account."

Vardy has always vehemently denied leaking the stories to the press while she sued Rooney for libel, but Coleen defended the claim on the basis her accusatory post was 'substantially true'.
