Coleen Rooney enjoys boozy girls night out at Westlife gig after Wagatha win

Coleen Rooney let her hair down for a girls night out at the Westlife's sold out gig at Wembley stadium last night after winning the Wagatha Christie court battle against Rebekah Vardy last week.

The warring WAGs are both huge fans of the Irish boyband, featuring Kian Egan, Mark Feehily, Shane Filan and Nicky Byrne.

The My Love singers performed at Coleen’s 2008 wedding to footballer Wayne, while Shane also sang at Rebekah’s 2016 marriage to Leicester City striker Jamie.

A week on from Wagatha verdict and Rebekah's bombshell TalkTV interview, Coleen enjoyed her first night out with pals as they partied with fans and fellow celeb guests at Westlife's greatest hits concert.

"Coleen looked ready to relax after what's been a stressful week," an onlooker said.

"She arrived with a group of girlfriends who were in good spirits and up for a night of fun as they chatted and drank together ahead of the show.

"The moon boot was off and Coleen dressed up in a pair of strappy sandals and colourful playsuit as she mingled with other concertgoers backstage.

"Coleen is a huge fan of the band and they mean a lot to both her and Wayne so seeing them play for the first time at Wembley stadium was the perfect way to let her hair down a week on from the Wagatha verdict."

Coleen was joined by celebrity pals including Rylan Clarke, Jonathan Ross and Laura Whitmore at the concert.

It was the first time the band had played at the iconic venue in their 20-year history.

The foursome treated fans to a celebration of their greatest hits including Swear It Again and Flying Without Wings.

Last year Westlife told Mirror how they hoped to use their persuasive pop star powers to get Coleen and Rebekah to sing Swear It Again at their Wembley Stadium gig, instead of swearing an oath in court.

Mark said: “We will be inviting Wagatha Christie. They are both more than welcome to come.

“We will be like the UN. We would love to be involved in them making peace with each other. Westlife’s music has played a big part in many people’s marriages, break-ups, ­christenings and funerals, so who knows?

“Hopefully, their mutual love for Westlife can bring them together.”

Nicky added: “I actually bumped into Wayne and Coleen the other day at a restaurant.

“I got very drunk at their wedding. They are both really lovely so we will definitely invite them down and hopefully they will come.”

Meanwhile, Shane said: “I sang at Jamie and Rebekah’s wedding. He’s actually a massive fan too and often trains to Westlife songs.

“From our point of view, everyone is invited and the more the merrier.”

The band played to a massive 70,000 strong crowd at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

Speaking after the concert, the band said: “This was once-in-a-lifetime experience and it was incredible. The fans were sensational tonight. It was amazing. It was the greatest of our lives. "

Mark Feehily added: "This was the biggest show we've ever done and it was magical. I never thought I'd be standing on stage at Wembley Stadium with the lads 20 years after we started out. It is emotional to think about how far we've come. We've been able to do this because we've got the best fans in the world."

Louis Walsh, who launched Westlife in 1998, said: "The lads have been on an incredible journey from Sligo to Wembley Stadium. This show was simply amazing because it is packed with songs that people know. Westlife's hits have been the soundtrack to people's lives. What a show! Westlife have tonight cemented their position as one the most iconic pop bands in history."
