Jamie Vardy holds hands with Becky in show of support as Wayne Rooney arrives with Coleen to take the stand in Wagatha

WAYNE Rooney has arrived at the High Court to take the stand in his wife's explosive Wagatha Christie battle against Rebekah Vardy.

The Derby manager will take to the stand this morning as the legal row rumbles on.



He was all smiles as he arrived at the court in London this morning with wife Coleen, 35, who finished her own explosive evidence yesterday.

Rebekah was supported by husband Jamie for the first time since the trial started as they made their way inside hand-in-hand.

The Leicester ace and Wayne, 36, shared a curt nod as they came face-to-face inside the courtroom.

Wayne has found himself dragged into the Wagatha battle after Coleen accused Rebekah, 39, of leaking stories to the press.

Coleen revealed yesterday how the couple's 14-year marriage hasn't always been plain sailing.

Hugh Tomlinson QC, for Rebekah, referenced Wayne's drink-driving arrest in 2017 where he was caught driving a party girl's car.

The barrister 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 revealed the sting operation was so secretive she didn't even tell Wayne about it.

Coleen told on Friday how she was in a "vulnerable situation" after Wayne was arrested for drink-driving following a ten-hour booze session.

The Derby manager was driving party girl Laura Simpson home in her VW Beetle when cops swooped back in 2017 while Coleen was pregnant.

Coleen branded his behaviour as "some wrongdoing" as she spoke candidly about her 14-year marriage.

She also revealed she "wasn't sure if they were going to get back together" and said they spent time apart.

WAGATHA ROW

It came after Coleen claimed her post was a "last resort" and told the court she was "surprised" by how much it exploded.

She said today she "hated every minute" of the fallout – but the court was told she had a Scooby Doo meme about "unmasking the villain" on her phone.

Coleen also revealed she has tried three times "in vain" to settle the multi-million pound case before it reached trial.

She said: "I've been silent… I don't want to be here… it's Mrs Vardy who has brought me here".

Coleen turned detective in October 2019 and accused Rebekah of sharing stories from her personal Instagram account.

In the infamous post, Coleen said she posted a string of false stories via her Instagram account with restricted access to see if they appeared in the media, which they did.

She then said the fake stories had only been viewed by one person, and ended dramatically: “It’s . . . Rebekah Vardy’s account.”

Jamie Vardy's wife Rebekah, who was heavily pregnant at the time, denied the allegations and claimed she was heavily abused as a result.

She broke down three times in her own evidence as she slammed "hurtful" trolls.

She said she was forced to endure "hurtful and upsetting" abuse from trolls after the post went viral.

Rebekah added: "This was my life."

The judge suggested a short break so Rebekah could compose herself – although she wept again moments after returning.

She broke down as she told how her baby was born in December 2019 – just two months after Coleen's post.

Rebekah admitted she was "not in a good place" at the time.

She also revealed she feared losing the baby after the Wagatha post and said it left her suffering from "constant anxiety, panic attacks".

When asked why she took the case to court, Rebekah said: "I didn't do anything wrong – I wanted to clear my name, and not just for me, for my family and my children."

The trial continues.
