Wagatha Christie case: Coleen Rooney wins libel trial brought by Rebekah Vardy

Rebekah Vardy has lost her multi-million pound libel case against Coleen Rooney after the High Court ruled that she was behind a series of stories that were leaked to the tabloid media.

Ms Justice Steyn delivered her written ruling on Friday (29 July) following a high-profile two-week trial in May, two years after Ms Vardy sued Ms Rooney for defamation.

Ms Vardy has always denied the public accusation.
