Four years ago, Coleen and Rebekah became embroiled in a very public spat after the former claimed on social media that the latter’s Instagram account was the source of “false stories” being leaked to The Sun, in a post that was signed off with the now-iconic line: “It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account.”
After a back-and-forth that went on for years, including a high-profile legal battle, Coleen is set to share her side of the story for the first time in a Disney+ documentary titled The Real Wagatha Story.
Promoting the doc on Monday’s edition of The One Show, Coleen reflected on her original post, revealing: “[Wayne] was in America at the time and just said, ‘What have you done?’.
“I think people were shocked – especially people close to me – that I’d put it on social media because that’s not my character at all.”
Of keeping the masterplan to herself, Coleen added: “If I did tell anyone, it’s just not going to work. I needed to keep it all to myself.”
A trailer for the documentary was released last week, in which Coleen was heard insisting she “sticks by” her original social media post.
“They’re my words – and I stick by them,” she says.
Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story will be available to stream on Disney+ from Wednesday 18 October. Watch the trailer for yourself below:
