Seven biggest bombshells revealed as Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy's Wagatha dramatic trial unfolded | The Sun

IT was the battle that gripped the nation for three years as Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy went head-to-head in a sensational trial.

The drama erupted way back in 2019 when Coleen carried out a "sting operation" to uncover who was leaking stories about her to the press.

In a now-infamous post, she finally revealed: "It's…Rebekah Vardy's account."

The internet exploded with memes as Coleen was branded "Wagatha Christie" thanks her detective work.

As the abuse mounted against her, Rebekah denied the claims and brought a £3million lawsuit against her rival Wag.

The two-week case kicked off in March with a string of bombshells as Coleen and Rebekah finally went head-to-head.

Coleen has now emerged victorious after Mrs Justice Steyn handed down her long-awaited judgment today.

Here are the most shocking parts of the epic Wagatha trial.

Rebekah's tears

As she took to the witness stand, Rebekah repeatedly broke down and even caused the case to be halted so she could compose herself.

The mum-of-five wept as she told how she was forced to endure "hurtful and upsetting" abuse from trolls after the Wagatha post went viral.

Rebekah also sobbed as she told how her baby was born in December 2019 – just two months after Coleen's post.

Her tears continued as she was accused of lying after she denied setting up paparazzi to take pics of Wags during the 2018 World Cup.

She was also blasted for her "selective amnesia" after saying she hadn't referred to herself as the "unofficial leader of the Wags".

The disastrous evidence led to Mrs Justice Steyn rapping Coleen's lawyer David Sherborne for his "unnecessary" jibes.

Peter Andre's 'chipolata'

It appeared no one was safe from having their names dragged through the mud at the explosive trial.

Peter Andre was forced to defend himself as his manhood became the source of much speculation.

Rebekah had referred to his genitalia as a "chipolata" in a 2004 kiss-and-tell story on the Mysterious Girl singer.

She apologised to the star for her "shameful" remark and called it "one of my biggest regrets".

Peter retaliated by saying he has been mocked about his manhood for 15 years after Rebekah claimed he had the "smallest trouser equipment she's ever seen".

Who is Davy Jones?

After a harrowing morning in the witness box for Rebekah, there was some light relief in the form of a mysterious nautical reference.

Mr Sherborne had asked about Rebekah's agent Caroline Watt losing her phone in the North Sea days after she was ordered to turn it over to the court.

The lawyer said: "We know that Miss Watt's phone is now in Davy Jones' Locker, don't we, Mrs Vardy?"

Rebekah, who was clearly baffled, then replied: "I'm sorry, I don't know who Davy Jones is."

As people in the room burst out laughing, the judge explained it's an idiom for the bottom of the sea.

Leicester leaks

It emerged Rebekah had told her agent to leak a story about footballer Danny Drinkwater's 2019 drink-driving arrest.

The court heard through text messages how she had given the whole story to her agent, demanding: "I want paying for this".

When she was told someone had already tipped off journalists, Rebekah replied: "F***… I'm fuming I didn't give it to you earlier."

It appeared none of husband Jamie's teammates were off limits to Rebekah.

She also tried to "do the dirty" and spill the beans on unrest in the Leicester dressing room after Riyad Mahrez went "on strike".

Rebekah told Miss Watt: "Mahrez not turned up to training again… lads are fuming."

Jamie vs Wayne

It wasn't just the women who squared off at court with ex-England teammates Wayne and Jamie also wading into the row.

Wayne stuck the boot in first when he sensationally claimed he was asked to speak to Jamie about Rebekah back at the 2016 Euros in France.

The footballer was approached by ex-England gaffer Roy Hogdson and assistant manager Gary Neville, who pleaded with him to speak to the striker.

He said there had been "negative media coverage" and "issues" surrounding Rebekah that were "causing problems and distractions".

Wayne added: "They asked me, as captain, would I be able to speak to Mr Vardy on issues regarding his wife and I think we all knew that it was an awkward subject.

"I'd need to speak to Mr Vardy and ask him to speak to his wife and ask him to say to ask his wife to calm down."

He continued: "It was an awkward situation for me and I'm sure it was an awkward situation for Mr Vardy, but I felt it was in the best interests of the team."

But Jamie was quick to rebuff the claims and even released a statement outside court.

He said: "Wayne is talking nonsense.

"He must be confused because he never spoke to me about issues concerning Becky's media work at Euro 2016.

"There was nothing to speak about, I know this because I discuss everything with Becky."

Coleen's marriage woes

In a frank admission, Coleen opened up about her 14-year marriage to Wayne as she gave evidence.

She was asked about Wayne's drink-driving arrest in 2017 where he was caught driving a party girl's car.

Rebekah's barrister Hugh Tomlinson QC said it was "another apparent crisis" in their relationship and that the ex-Utd star had been "misbehaving".

Coleen added: "Yes there has been a few. It's unfortunate that things have happened in my life.

"They get publicised and it's happened quite a few times.

"I have dealt with it, we have dealt with it, as a couple and as a family.

"There were a few things over these few years."

She also told how she was in a "vulnerable situation" after Wayne was arrested following the ten-hour booze session.

Coleen branded his behaviour as "some wrongdoing" and revealed she "wasn't sure if they were going to get back together" and said they spent time apart.

Rebekah's row with Sarah Harding

The court was told how Rebekah got into a row with Sarah Harding after the Girls Aloud star caught her taking photos of her handbag.

The Wag was allegedly seen capturing the contents of Sarah's bag after it fell open on the ground at the National TV Awards in 2018.

A story about the reported spat appeared in several national newspapers at the time including The Sun.

Coleen made the claim in her witness statement, saying: "She also got in a spat with former Girls Aloud group member Sarah Harding during the 2018 event because Sarah apparently caught Becky taking photographs of the contents of Sarah's handbag when Sarah had dropped it on the floor."

Sources at the time claimed Sarah confronted Rebekah after seeing a "camera flash" and the Wag standing nearby holding her phone.

The singer, who tragically passed away last year after battling breast cancer, reportedly accused her of taking pictures as she scrambled around to collect her possessions.

Reports claimed Rebekah demanded an apology from Sarah and it grew "heated".
