No showbiz story has gripped the nation quite like the Wagatha Christie scandal.The legal feud hit the papers after Coleen Rooney accused Rebekah Vardy’s Instagram account of leaking her private posts to the press, culminating in Rebekah losing her libel case against Coleen last year.
Now, Coleen has given her side of the story in a Disney+ documentary – revealing that the stress of the trial left her ill. “It caused anxiety and there were lots of tears,” she says. “I have reactive arthritis.
I’ve had it previously but this situation brought it on a lot more. It stripped me of my character and I didn’t want to socialise with people.
I was completely in my own world. It was not a nice place to be.” Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story looks back at the lawsuit and the media frenzy around it.
