Coleen Rooney breaks silence on Rebekah Vardy libel case: Now it’s my turn to speak

Coleen Rooney has opened up about the infamous ' Wagatha Christie ' trial, which saw Coleen accuse fellow WAG Rebekah Vardy of leaking personal stories about her to the press.

After Coleen, 37, made her accusations against Rebekah, 41, public sued for libel, but lost her case in last year's rather high-profile court case.

Since then, the public's obsession with the case has only continued with numerous documentaries, a Channel 4 fictionalisation and a West End play, but now Coleen is set to share even more on the trial in a new Disney+ limited series.

And ahead of this, the WAG-turned-amateur-detective has said that it's now her turn to speak openly about the trial.

Speaking to The Times, Coleen said: "Everyone was saying so many things about the case at the time, including the other side. But I didn't, because I'm not that type of person. But now it's my turn to speak."

Recalling the trial itself, Coleen opened up about the nerves she had felt going into court everyday, as she explained: "I'd never been in a courtroom before and I was really nervous. I never spoke on the way to London and every morning in the hotel I didn't speak."

Coleen was supported by her husband of 15 years, former footballer Wayne every day of the trial, whom she has revealed told her: "You just tell the truth, because no one can wrong with the truth."

Ahead of the Disney+ series, celebrity PR expert Jack Proverbs has told OK! that Coleen is bouncing back after a 'painful' four years, and while she may have won the legal side of things, that hasn't been the case emotionally.

"It would’ve been a painful four years for Coleen to endure despite ‘winning’ legally," explained Jack.

He added: "There’s no shadow of a doubt that it would’ve impacted her emotionally over the last few years because no matter how many people supported her case, there will still be those who dismiss the accusations despite Rebekah Vardy losing her libel case against Coleen Rooney."

And PR guru Ed told us that Coleen talking about these issues so publicly may "offer her a chance to share her perspective."

"The past four years have been transformative for Coleen Rooney. From being at the centre of one of the most-discussed controversies to harnessing that attention and channelling it into productive avenues, Coleen has showcased her ability to bounce back, evolve, and shine.

"Her journey serves as a testament to resilience and the power of reinvention."
