We all remember the cultural shift that was their explosive 2019 feud – which saw Coleen dramatically claim that supposed friend and fellow WAG Rebekah was leaking fake stories to The Sun – and now a tell-all Disney+ series is about to offer viewers the most revealing look into the bombshell revelations yet.
Coleen and Rebekah, who are married to former England player Wayne Rooney and Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, respectively, fell out publicly when Coleen shared a statement claiming she had narrowed down suspects to all but one person, a realisation which led to the line that now lives in infamy: “It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account” – something she denied, and launched a high profile libel case against Coleen.
“Don’t play games with a girl who can play better,” Coleen warns in the teaser.
Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming documentary…
What is Coleen Rooney’s Wagatha documentary about?
The documentary retraces Coleen’s online sleuth work after she suspected someone on her private Instagram account was leaking stories. “They’re my words,” she says in the dramatic trailer, referring to the now-immortalised post. “And I stick by them.”
The trailer also depicts footage of the media circus around the subsequent 2022 court case after Rebekah sued Coleen for libel. The court ultimately dismissed Rebekah’s claim on the basis that Coleen’s statements were substantially true. She faced a legal bill of around £3 million.
“This is a detective story,” one interviewee in the teaser states. “You never find the person responsible with a smoking gun in her hand.”
Coleen recalls “needing evidence” and deciding to set a “trap” to get to the bottom of the story leaks.
The documentary will also cover the personal toll the highly-publicised scandal took on Coleen. At one point in the trailer, she’s seen breaking down in tears, as she shares: “My dad said ‘you’re just not you any more’.”
