Rebekah Vardy has been quizzed once again at the Wagatha Christie libel trial about a WhatsApp exchange which saw her brand Coleen Rooney a ‘c***’ after she unfollowed her on Instagram.

Coleen, 36, accused Rebekah, 40, of leaking ‘false stories’ about her private life to the media in October 2019, after carrying out what she described as a months-long ‘sting operation’.

She publicly outed Rebekah in an Instagram post, claiming her fellow WAG had shared three ‘fake’ stories she had shared as bait on her personal account. Rebekah furiously denied this and launched her costly libel action which is now into its second trial day.

Before the scandal broke Coleen stopped following Rebekah on Instagram. ‘OMG what a c***,’ Rebekah texted her agent Caroline Watt after realising what had happened, according to texts read out to the High Court earlier in the trial.

Before the Wagatha Christie scandal broke Coleen stopped following Rebekah on Instagram. ‘OMG what a c***,’ Rebekah texted her agent Caroline Watt after realising what had happened, according to texts read out to the High Court earlier in the trial.

Today, Coleen’s lawyer David Sherborne told the court about a story that appeared in The Sun about Coleen being in a car crash, written by journalist Andy Halls.

During the text exchange, Rebekah discussed whether this could have been the reason Coleen stopped following her.

Rebekah said in a message to Ms Watt that she doesn’t know how Coleen ‘would ever know that unless Halls has leaked it, in which case please don’t give him the Mr X stuff’.

‘Mr X’ was a married footballer who had an affair with a woman who became pregnant, the court heard.

Mr Sherborne suggested this means that if the journalist ‘has dobbed us in’, don’t give him the ‘juicy gossip’.

Rebekah said that the story about Mr X was ‘widely known’ and there was speculation on social media about it.

The WAG said it was ‘not true’ the car crash post had been leaked by Ms Watt to the Sun.

Mr Sherborne said Ms Watt came up with a ‘lie’ that her laptop had been left with ‘one of the girls’ at her company.

‘One of Coleen’s kids looks like he’s got no seatbelt on,’ Rebekah told Ms Watt about a picture shared on Coleen’s private Instagram.

Ms Watt immediately knew what Rebekah was talking about, Mr Sherborne says, and called it an example of Ms Watt ‘monitoring’ Coleen’s account.

Rebekah denied this.

‘It’s on her private Insta so can’t do anything with it,’ the court heard Ms Watt told her client.

‘She’s such a d**k,’ Rebekah said in one message.

She then denied she was directing Ms Watt to the story to leak it to a newspaper.

Mr Sherborne said Rebekah ‘knew perfectly well’ what Ms Watt meant by ‘can’t do anything with it’.

Mr Sherborne said the matter was important, as yesterday Rebekah told the court she did not know Ms Watt was accessing private information through her own account.

Rebekah described it as a ‘mix of words’.

Mr Sherborne reminded Rebekah she agreed yesterday that it would be ‘wrong’ if this was happening.

She said again that they were ‘just gossiping’ and denied ‘condoning’ Ms Watt to leak stories.
