The Wagatha Christie trial – explained
Rebekah Vardy has lost her Wagatha Christie libel trial against Coleen Rooney.
Vardy had sued Rooney after being publicly accused of leaking "false stories" to the media in 2019, with the high-profile trial taking place at the High Court in London in May.
The wife of former England star Wayne Rooney was dubbed "Wagatha Christie" after claiming that three fake stories posted on her personal Instagram page – which unbeknown to Vardy at the time were shared only with her account – were passed on to The Sun newspaper.
Sky News explains the story.
