Rebekah Vardy's Lawyer Confused Over How Instagram Stories Work

Since it first launched last week, the High Court case between Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney has consistently made headlines, as legal teams work to get to the bottom of the 2019 Wagatha Christie scandal.

As the trial enters its final days, Rebekah Vardy's lawyer has had people scratching their heads while trying to work out exactly how Instagram Stories work.

Vardy, 40, has sued Coleen Rooney, 36, for libel following Rooney's infamous declaration that Vardy's Instagram account had been leaking stories about her to The Sun.

In her own makeshift 'sting operation', Coleen posted a series of false stories about herself on a private Instagram Story for a select number of her followers to see, in an effort to identify the perpetrator in her social group.

Rooney alleges that she eventually managed to narrow the leak down to Vardy's account when she was approached about a story The Sun was set to publish based on one of the false stories she had shared on her private Instagram Story.

On Monday, Vardy's legal team questioned Rooney about the elimination process, tripping over themselves as they got into the finer details about how Instagram works.

According to court reporter for The i newspaper Poppy Wood, Vardy's lawyer Hugh Tomlinson asked Rooney: “So you had to manually go in and hide your story from 300 people?”

She explained: “Yes you go into your settings and then you go into hide my story and then you hide it from different people.”

Vardy's lawyer reportedly later got confused over how taking photos for Instagram Stories worked.

Explaining the ins and outs of Insta, Rooney informed Vardy's lawyer that one could take a photo directly on the Instagram app.

Rooney even found herself correcting the lawyer on how older Instagram posts worked, informing him that a new Instagram follower could easily scroll back to look at someone's old posts.

Oh dear.

The High Court case between Rooney and Vardy, which began last Tuesday, is expected to last seven days.
