Rebekah Vardy's bid to protect reputation in trial 'not going well at the moment', says lawyer

By Rose Hill

Rebekah Vardy 's attempt to protect her reputation by bringing a libel trial against Coleen Rooney is "not going well at the moment", a lawyer has suggested.

The WAGs are facing each other at the High Court today for day three of Wagatha - a trial that has lurched from bombshell claim to bombshell claim, all while racking up an estimated £2m price tag.

The pair have been at loggerheads since the latter accused Jamie Vardy's wife's account of leaking 'false stories' about her private life in October 2019.

Rebekah, 40, denies the allegations and is suing Coleen for damages for libel over the 'untrue and unjustified defamatory attack'.

Lawyer Jonathan Coad appeared on Good Morning Britain alongside Angie Best to discuss the case, which he said would always have been a "huge risk" to Rebekah.

Host Susanna Reid asked Jonathan: "We're hearing the airing of a lot of dirty laundry in that court case and the only people that are benefitting are the lawyers - as a lawyer, is that the case?"

"In many ways, it is, I regret to say and I can own up on behalf of most lawyers," Jonathan replied. "It was always a huge risk for Rebekah Vardy because she was going to be very closely cross-examined and that process was going to bring a lot of dirt out and that is indeed what's happening.

"So I fear that as an exercise to protect her reputation, at the moment it's not going very well."

Meanwhile, Angie admitted that she thought the case was a waste of time.

She said: "Of course they had their right to air their grievances but I just think it's really sad that it's come this far. And if these two girls can't fix it in the playground you have to go to the headmistress' office, I suppose!

"They're fortunate enough to be privileged enough to be able to do this, but I just think that their egos have gotten the better of them."
