'Tired' Coleen Rooney 'forced to accept Wayne's betrayal', says body language expert

By Judi James & Molly Pike

Coleen and Wayne Rooney discuss the challenges in their relationship in a new documentary about his life and career.

The couple touch on his public cheating and boozing scandals throughout the years in a trailer for the Amazon Prime documentary, called Rooney.

Body language expert Judi James told The Mirror said the documentary will be a "difficult watch".

Judi told us: "It seems as though this documentary will be a difficult watch for the viewer as, even in this short promo, it looks like we can all look forward to choking on some large helpings of word salad or marital double-speak once Wayne’s private life shenanigans get yet another raking over.

"Coleen says Wayne is fine as long as they are together, it's when they're apart that the problems start, which is about as obvious a comment as saying the earth is round.

"Few if any men misbehave while their wives are standing right next to them rolling pin at the ready, but if it's a lack of proximity that's the problem so be it.

"Wayne says it's important 'people remember me for who I am rather than what I've done'.

"Un-coupling personality from behaviour is an interesting concept and it also means we should also forget the fact that he once played some cracking football.

"Straddling these concepts we see some poignant footage of a very young and proud-looking Coleen on her wedding day looking beautiful and confident with her neck stretched and her chin raised high, offering Wayne a dimpled smile and a small toss of her head as she approaches him in her wedding dress.

"Following this is a more current clip of Coleen with her neck twisted as she turns her rather tired-looking eyes towards the camera, looking unhappy and shaking her head with an almost parental look of disapproval as she says 'I've forgiven but it wasn't acceptable', which is another odd word play that actually means she has accepted what isn't acceptable.

"Her sculpted brows are raised in a dramatic arch that looks cynical and it's hard to not have sympathy for this side of her life, where she is brought out to comment publicly on a relationship decision that is really no-one else's business.

"Maybe she should just have Tammy Wynette's 'Stand by your man' on speed dial instead."

*Rooney is set to debut on Amazon Prime in early 2022
