‘Shut your gob!’ Ulrika Jonsson blasts ‘arrogant wannabe’ Rebekah Vardy’s ‘sympathy plea'
Jamie Vardy’s wife protested her innocence in a candid chat last week, despite losing the libel trial against Wayne Rooney’s other half.Rebekah had taken Coleen to the High Court after being accused of leaking private messages from the star’s Instagram to the media, in what was infamously dubbed the Wagatha Christie trial.Judge, Mrs Justice Steyn, gave her verdict towards the end of last month, in which she ruled in favour of Coleen.Rebekah has since emotionally claimed she thinks she has PTSD in an appearance on TalkTV, where she dressed in white and went makeup-free to share her side of the story.However, Swedish model and TV presenter Ulrika isn’t buying the WAG’s attempt to restore her reputation.The star fumed in her latest column: “The arrogance of Vardy thinking that the rest of us would buy the words of someone who has so damningly been found to be responsible for such a public betrayal of a friend is overwhelming.”Ulrika continued to claim that Rebekah’s PTSD declaration was part of a desperate bid to gain favour from the public.She added: “As for her claim of being let down by the legal system, it will leave many people reeling.“Women who’ve been raped and find that only 1.3 per cent of their cases see the light of court – now THEY can claim they’ve been let down by the court system.” Continuing to blast Rebekah, Ulrika fumed in The Sun: “Not an arrogant wannabe who clearly has ideas above her station and thinks she’s infallible."Ulrika went on to advise the WAG to keep her mouth shut and get involved in charity work and self-reflection to occupy her days.Speaking for the first time after the verdict last month, Rebekah said: "I am extremely sad and disappointed at the decision that the Judge has reached.“It is

I was scared to be out in public places."Rebekah went on to add that she'd suffered abuse in person too, as she said: "Everyone always says: 'These people wouldn’t say things to your face,' but actually you do get the odd few that go that extra mile."She continued: "The abuse I was getting was insane.

‘Inconceivable’ Coleen Rooney to make Rebekah Vardy pay ‘every penny’ of £3m trial
Coleen Rooney, 36,  and Rebekah Vardy, 40, are set to face each for one last time over who will foot the multi-million-pound bill for their costly "Wagatha Christie" libel battle. According to sources, the spouse of Wayne Rooney will fight to make sure Mrs Vardy pays the full amount, estimated to be up to £3million. Usually, a winning party has to pay about 30 per cent of the costs. However, Mrs Rooney’s team have reportedly claimed the judge’s judgment that Mrs Vardy did sell stories about her to The Sun have made it “inconceivable” that she won’t be made to pay the full amount. Mrs Justice Steyn ruled on Friday that Mrs Vardy and her agent Caroline Watt had leaked stories about Mrs Rooney, wife of ex-England skipper Wayne. Mrs Vardy had sued her former friend for libel over a now-famous social media post in which Mrs Rooney described setting up a “sting operation”.Mrs Rooney had cleverly posted fake stories to selected followers on her private Instagram account to uncover who was leaking stories about her to The Sun. In 2019 Mrs Rooney confirmed: “It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account.”After Mrs Vardy brought legal action, Mrs Rooney offered her an offer that meant they could both walk away just paying their own costs.The latter also suggested they make a charity donation. But Mrs Vardy declined, leading to a costly High Court trial.

‘Vile abuse!’ Judge in Wagatha trial defends Rebekah Vardy 'No excuse for vitriol'
Rebekah Vardy, 40, has lost her defamation case to Coleen Rooney, 36, after a dramatic trial. However, the trial judge pointed out that there was no need for the “vitriol” or “vile abuse” the media personality has been subjected to. Rebekah has lost her High Court level battle she brought against Coleen Rooney over a viral social media post.Mrs Justice Steyn said that Rebekah Vardy had faced "vile abuse" from members of the public following Coleen Rooney's post. She said: "Some members of the public have responded to the reveal post by subjecting Mrs Vardy to vile abuse, including messages wishing her, her family, and even her then-unborn baby, ill in the most awful terms. "Nothing of which Mrs Vardy has been accused, nor any of the findings in this judgement, provide any justification or excuse for subjecting her or her family, or any other person involved in this case, to such vitriol." Coleen, who is the wife of former England footballer Wayne Rooney, made claims that stories about her had been leaked from Rebekah’s Instagram account.Rebekah, who is the wife of footballing pro Jamie Vardy, insisted that such claims were defamatory, taking her to court.The judgement in Vardy v Rooney was handed down by Mrs Justice Steyn today. The hand down took place remotely, with nothing physically happening in court.In her ruling, Mrs Justice Steyn said it was "likely" that Mrs Vardy's agent at the time, Caroline Watt, "undertook the direct act" of passing the information to The Sun.But she added: "Nonetheless, the evidence ...

Savage WhatsApp messages that exposed Rebekah Vardy's libel claim in Wagatha hearing
Rebekah Vardy was accused of leaking information from Coleen Rooney’s private Instagram account to the press in October 2019.The WAG, 40, took legal action against Rooney, 36, in May for libel but today, Vardy lost the case at the High Court of Justice in London. In her judgment today, Mrs Justice Steyn wrote: "I have found that Ms Vardy was party to the disclosure to The Sun of the Marriage, Birthday, Halloween, Pyjamas, Car Crash, Gender Selection, Babysitting and Flooded Basement Posts."It is likely that Ms Watt undertook the direct act, in relation to each post, of passing the information to a journalist at The Sun."Nonetheless, the evidence analysed above clearly shows, in my view, that Ms Vardy knew of and condoned this behaviour, actively engaging in it by directing Ms Watt to the Private Instagram Account, sending her screenshots of Ms Rooney’s posts, drawing attention to items of potential interest to the press, and answering additional queries raised by the press via Ms Watt."We look back at nine key exchanges between Rebekah Vardy and her agent Caroline Watt.Giving evidence, Vardy was asked about the so-called ‘Photoshop girl’ conversation with Caroline where they discuss edited photos.An image appears to have been sent to Caroline by Vardy, but the trial heard that, due to issues with uploading Whatsapp data, all the image files have been lost.Vardy says to Watt that the pictures “made her fume” as the editing software Photoshop can make you look “five sizes smaller”.Giving evidence, Vardy said that, when she told Caroline to “leak a story”, she was talking about a report on “body positivity”.The court saw messages between Vardy and Caroline in which they discuss Jamie Vardy’s former Leicester City team mate

Wagatha Christie judge says Caroline Watt 'likely deliberately' dropped phone in sea
Rebekah Vardy has sensationally lost the trial she brought against Coleen Rooney after accusing the fellow WAG of libel.The court battle came two-and-a-half years after Rooney broke the internet with a statement that claimed Vardy's Instagram account had been leaking stories published by the former to The Sun.READ MORE: How Peter Andre's penis was dragged into Rooney V Vardy Wagatha trial and his responseA judge has ruled that the informant was likely Vardy's agent, Caroline Watt, though Vardy knew about the leaks.Prior to the court battle between the two WAGs an order was made on August 4 for Ms Watt's phone to be inspected - but the agent claimed she dropped her phone into the North Sea in the same month.As the verdict was delivered on July 29, Mrs Justice Steyn said the likelihood that the loss of Watt's phone was accidental was "slim" and that it was "likely" she deliberately dropped her phone into the sea.The judge said the timing was "striking" as she added: "It is likely that the WhatsApp chat between herself and Mrs Vardy, as well as exchanges with journalists, was available on Ms Watt’s phone when she was advised very shortly after the reveal post that such evidence must be preserved."Mrs Justice Steyn added: "In my judgment, it is likely that Ms Vardy deliberately deleted her WhatsApp chat with Ms Watt, and that Ms Watt deliberately dropped her phone in the sea."Caroline Watt did not give evidence at the trial, with the judge believing Rebekah chose not to call her agent Caroline Watt to give evidence partly because she knew her evidence “would be shown to be untrue".Ms Watt had been due to give evidence in support of Mrs Vardy, however, she withdrew her evidence pre-trial, with the court told it was due to

Coleen Rooney 'confident she's already won' Rebekah Vardy Wagatha Christie trial
Coleen Rooney is reportedly extremely confident ahead of the Wagatha Christie trial verdict which will be handed down today (July 29) at Midday.Mrs Justice Steyn is giving the bombshell verdict at London's High Court, and it has been revealed that both Rooney, 36, and Rebekah Vardy are not being given advance notice of the outcome to prevent it being leaked ahead of time.It's been claimed that Rooney is "supremely confident" ahead of the verdict and has reportedly told pals: "Whatever the judge decides, I've already won."READ MORE: Coleen and Wayne Rooney reunite for sweet family day amid Wagatha Christie dramaThe source told The Sun: "She believes the evidence presented before the court has proved her case that Becky knew about leaks to the Press — and approved them."Legal sources have reportedly said: "It's totally at the judge's discretion but allows those involved to consider their legal position, especially in a high-profile case like this."On this occasion that has been totally denied — and they won't know the result until the morning." The trial, which concluded back in May, captivated millions after sensational pieces of evidence were revealed in court which included "incriminating messages" going missing.The two WAGS have been embroiled in the bitter legal battle since October 2019 after Rooney took to social media to publicly accuse Vardy of leaking stories about her to the press.Coleen set up her own month-long "sting operation" in an attempt to prove it was Rebekah behind the leaks and after the now infamous reveal post went viral, she was later dubbed Wagatha Christie by several members of the public.The I'm A Celeb star has always vehemently denied the claims and, in June 2020, filed a civil lawsuit for
