'Footballers Wives' Writer Says She's Been Inspired To Reboot The Series After This Week's WAG Drama

'Footballers Wives' Writer Says She's Been Inspired To Reboot The Series After This Week's WAG Drama

It's the story dominating the headlines - no we're not talking about Brexit - but rather Coleen Rooney's feud with Rebekah Vardy, which kicked off on social media earlier this week.

The furore has been likened to a plot straight out of Footballers' Wives and now fans of the ITV series will be thrilled as show writer Liz Lake said a reboot could be on the cards following Coleen 'WAGatha Christie' Rooney's impressive detective work.

During an appearance on BBC Radio 4's 'Today', host Nick Robinson said: "It's one of those examples where truth is stranger than fiction, I bet you wish you'd dreamt up this as we speak."

Liz, who is also a producer of the noughties show, added: "I'm typing as we speak! Wouldn't [another series] be nice? Coleen. We used to get accused of being hyperbole you know!

"I can tell you there were times we were writing stories where honest to God there'd be news stories on the radio where I'd have to stop what I was doing because the writing happened prior to shooting and by the time it went out it would look like we had stolen the story from the radio".

The fictional series followed the surreal highs and lows of WAG culture with Zoe Lucker taking to the helm playing the divisive Tanya Turner from 2002 to 2006.

Meanwhile, real-life tension kicked off on Wednesday (9th October) when Coleen, 33, released an explosive statement aimed at Rebekah, 37, in which the wife of footballer Wayne Rooney, revealed she had orchestrated a stealthy 18-month sting operation on Instagram in a bid to sniff out the person leaking fake stories about her.

Since then the nation has been hooked by the drama (and memes) of it all.
