Coleen Rooney hits back at Rebekah Vardy's tearful Loose Women appearance

Rebekah Vardy did her first televised interview since the Coleen Rooney scandal on Loose Women yesterday. It was a hard time.

So basically Coleen claimed somebody from her personal Instagram account had been selling fake stories to the newspapers. See what Wayne Rooney's wife had to say here. When those stories made it into the press, Rooney's suspicions were confirmed. "We're in the middle of a legal battle". "It is probably up there with one of the worst things that I have had to deal with apart from being abused when I was younger".

Coleen then retweeted the post to her 1.2 million followers.

"I'm not being amusing but I don't need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?" It was my manager that messaged me [about Coleen's statement] and there it was in all its glory.

"I have been trolled before and I do get it all the time, but it escalated off the back of this".

In a dramatic reveal on her Instagram page, Mrs Rooney wrote: "I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them".

Vardy, who vehemently denies the allegations, went on: "I ended up with severe anxiety attacks".

She tearfully continued: "I had people messaging me saying nasty stuff and one in particular [said], "you fat ugly rat I hope you and your baby rot". Did she not do it?"

The 37-year-old described the spat, which kicked off last October while she was seven months pregnant, as the "worst time of her life" other than when she was sexually abused as a child.

The couple tied the knot in May 2016 after a two-year relationship and share two children, Sofia and Finlay, the latter of which was born in January 2017.

Rebekah points out that the whole situation negatively affected her family as well - especially her husband and eldest daughter.

Rebekah criticised Coleen's actions at the time, and has since said that she was hospitalised with severe anxiety following the scandal. [My daughter] found it really, really hard.

She explained that she had done some detective work, blocking everyone from her private Instagram account except Vardy, to see who it was. I think it's hard for the kids, you can only say to them, "Don't read it, not everyone likes you and not everyone's going to be your friend and that's okay".
