Stylist makes £50,000 in 24 hours selling 'Wagatha Christie' T-shirts

WAGS at war, now get the T-shirt! Stylist makes £50,000 in 24 hours selling ‘Wagatha Christie’ tees on eBay inspired by Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy’s feud

  • Stylist Ozzy Shah spotted the WAG-related opportunity and is cashing in
  • Simple black tee carries the slogan ‘Wagatha Christie’, moniker given to Coleen Rooney after she investigated who was leaking stories to tabloids about her  
  • Shah says he’s sold 5,000 of the £11.99 T-shirts already and will donate 10 per cent of sales to MIND to raise awareness about mental health 
  • When Lady Hale wore a spider brooch in the Supreme Court last month, a T-shirt company created a similar design – and the tees flew off the shelves

An enterprising stylist is cashing-in on Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy’s very public spat – by printing t-shirts emblazoned with the words ‘Wagatha Christie’. 

The comedy moniker has been given to Coleen, 33, since she revealed yesterday that she’d turned super sleuth in a bid to find out who had been ‘leaking’ stories about her to the tabloid press. 

After the WAG, married to Wayne Rooney, put fake stories on her private Instagram account she revealed she believed Rebekah, 37, was responsible for leaking the tall tales to the press.

Cashing in! Stylist Ozzie Shah is selling Wagatha Christie t-shirts for £9.99 each. The comedy moniker has been given to Coleen, 33, since she revealed yesterday that she’d turned super sleuth in a bid to find out who had been ‘leaking’ stories about her to the tabloid press

Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy are at loggerheads over Coleen’s accusations that Rebekah sold stories about her after reading them on the WAG’s private Instagram account

Smoking a fat cigar! Ozzy Shah says he can’t believe how many of the T-shirts he’s sold – and even raised the price from £9.99 to £11.99 after realising just how interested people are

Coleen’s Wikipedia page received a number of edits in the hours after the story broke, with one fan changing her birth date to that of detective novelist Agatha Christie, while Wayne’s wife also got her own mention on the writer’s page.

Spotting the attention the spat has garnered, stylist Ozzy Shah decided to put the slogan ‘Wagatha Christie’ on a t-shirt and has so far sold 5,000 of them, raking in a cool £50,000. After initially pricing them at £9.99, he’s now raised the price to £11.99.

Shah told MailOnline: ‘I was instantly inspired to make that the WAGATHA CHRISTIE tee as thanks to Coleen Rooney this is exactly what the nation needed after only ever hearing about Brexit. 

He added: ‘I want to give 10 per cent from now on to the charity MIND as it’s Mental Health Awareness Week, we have to remember this is a very difficult time for both Coleen and Rebekah.’

Shah has also started an Instagram account, @wagatha_ dedicated to the argument between the two footballers’ wives.  

Last month, a similar venture saw an eBay seller sell 7,000 T-shirts inspired by Lady Hale’s spider brooch. 

Hilarious: Tweeters picked up on the witty edits, with one fan posting: ‘The absolute best thing about this Coleen Rooney/Rebekah Vardy story is that Wikipedia can’t keep up’

Other Twitter users took to calling Lady Hale ‘spiderwoman’ after she wore the brooch yesterday 

Baroness Hale, 74, appeared on TV screens across the country as she delivered the Supreme Court’s written judgement that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament was illegal.

The eBay seller sold the shirts at £10 each, with 30 per cent of the profits going to homeless charity Shelter. 

Her wearing the brooch has lead to many people creating rhymes in homage of the accessory.

It also inspired the T-shirt, made by London-based Balcony Shirts, which is a black with the spider on the shoulder. 

One Twitter user said: ‘span a web of Brexit lies; But Lady Hale saw through his disguise.  ‘He’s toast! Thanks to the spider brooch.’
