Fresh from losing the Wagatha Christie libel case, Rebekah Vardy has given a series of bombshell interviews, telling all on her call with Coleen Rooney and, once again, claiming her innocence.
Rebekah, 40, filed the lawsuit against Wayne Rooney’s wife Coleen, 36, after she publicly outed the mum-of-five as the person she believed was leaking stories about her to the press.
Rebekah still maintains her innocence three years on from the ordeal, despite a judge ruling in Coleen’s favour last week.
Now the infamous Wagatha trial has ended, Rebekah has shared a string of explosive comments. From personal mental health battles to addressing those Peter Andre comments, here are the most significant remarks the mum-of-five has made…
'I swore at Coleen Rooney on the phone'
In light of Coleen’s bombshell accusations on social media, Rebekah received a message from her saying she’d been trying to call her.
Returning her call, she said to Wayne’s wife: “What the f*** is this?”
Rebekah further recalled the conversation she had, saying: “[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’,” she added.
'I'm deeply ashamed of the Peter Andre story'
During the trial, one claim regarding Peter Andre made headlines after Coleen’s barrister David Sherborne brought up an interview Rebekah gave in 2004 which detailed an alleged one night stand with the singer, where she commented on the size of the singer's manhood.
In light of his name being mentioned in the trial, Rebekah admitted to TalkTV's Kate McCann that she "deeply regrets" the story she put her name to about Peter.
"It was something that I deeply regret and I'm deeply ashamed of," she said. "But it was so long ago. Life for me was completely different then and I tried to explain the situation in which that came up, and I think that it was wrong for him to have been brought into that situation."
"He had nothing to do with [the trial]," Rebekah added.
'I think I have PTSD'
Following Coleen’s 2019 accusations and the seven day-long trial earlier this year, Rebekah revealed that she believes she may have PTSD, and that she’s been hospitalised twice with mental health issues.
She was also put on antidepressants, which she says she’s since stopped taking.
“I was having serious panic attacks. I had kidney stones which were brought on by stress, and I just felt like my life was falling apart. Physically, emotionally and mentally it was exhausting,” Rebekah shared with The Sun.
“It was draining. I had to go to hospital a couple of times because they were really worried about my mental wellbeing.
“And since the court case, I think I’m probably suffering with PTSD — I feel physically sick when I talk about the trial and what happened, and I have nightmares. I haven’t gone to get a diagnosis yet but I do know I probably need some more therapy. It’s been a horrible time.”
'People compared me to terrorists'
As a result of both the trial and Coleen’s bombshell “It’s… Rebekah Vardy'' social media most, Rebekah has been subjected to an barrage of abuse – both online and in person.
The 40 year old’s had people accusing her of abducting Madeleine McCann, to it being suggested that she was part of terrorist group Islamic State.
“Everyone always says: ‘These people wouldn’t say things to your face,’ but actually you do get the odd few that go that extra mile,” she said.
“People walk past and call me names behind my back. I thought that eventually it would die down, it would go away, but it didn’t. It just got worse and worse.”
Speaking of the online trolling she’s experienced, Rebekah added: “The abuse I was getting was insane. At the beginning it would be 100 messages a day. I even got letters sent to my home, and some crazy s*** sent over including letters from psychics.
“I was linked to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, people suggesting I was a member of IS, stuff like that.”
'There was a chance I'd have gone into pre-term labour'
Rebekah was pregnant with her fifth child at the time of Coleen's accusations, something which she's since noted made things harder.
Discussing how she felt in 2019 following her fellow WAG's bombshell post, Rebekah shared: "When you're going through this without being pregnant it might have been a different thing, but then you add all the pregnancy hormones into everything and the emotions that come from that.
"I was trying to be mum to four children that were here and I had to try and protect my baby as well because I'd been told in no uncertain terms that if this stress didn't calm itself, there was a real high probability that I'd go into pre-term labour."
Coleen posted the Wagatha tweet in October 2019, with Rebekah giving birth to her and Jamie's second child together two months later.
'My former agent Caroline became so unwell because of the trial'
Rebekah's ex agent Caroline Watt's name was thrown into the mix a lot during the trial as she was representing Rebekah at the time.
Several text messages between the pair surfaced as part of the lawsuit after Rebekah admitted earlier this year that Caroline may have been the source of the leak.
Caroline was notably absent from the proceedings citing sickness as the reason she couldn't be there.
During the trial, Coleen's lawyer David Sherborne about an article in The Sun by Simon Boyle that referenced a picture of Wayne and his children on Coleen’s private Instagram.
The court previously heard that Caroline was unable to supply her messages between herself, Mr Boyle and another reporter Andy Halls. This was because her phone had “fallen into the North Sea during a boat trip”.
In light of her being embroiled in the case, Rebekah spoke of how unwell Caroline became.
She said: "It's really uncomfortable to talk about someone who's really been made so ill by this, from a mental health perspective. So unwell. You know, she's had threats and lots of different thing."
Rebekah added: "I never called her as a witness because I knew how bad her mental health was. But, throughout this whole process, she reassured me that she had nothing to do with this."
In light of the judge ruling in Coleen's favour last week, Wayne's wife issued a statement.
“Both before and after my social media posts in October 2019, I made every effort to avoid the need for such a drawn out and public court case. All my attempts to do so were knocked back by Mrs (Rebekah) Vardy," she began.
“This left me with no alternative but to go through with the case to defend myself and to end the repeated leaking of my private information to The Sun."
Coleen went on: "These leaks from my private Instagram account began in 2017. They continued for almost two years, intruding on my privacy and that of my family. Although I bear Mrs Vardy no ill-will, today’s judgement makes clear that I was right in what I said in my posts of October 2019."
She added that she was "pleased" with the verdict.
