The outing comes amid the ongoing 'Wagatha Christie' libel trial against Rebekah Vardy. In 2019, Coleen accused the former I'm A Celebrity star of leaking stories from her private Instagram account to the Sun after a months-long sting operation.

Rebekah, who is married to the professional footballer Jamie Vardy, denied the accusation and is suing Coleen for libel. The case is due to go to a full trial in May.

During the interview, Rebekah explained how the online row resulted in her being hospitalised in the late stages of her pregnancy. "It's really hard because we are in the middle of a legal battle and I can't really say too much at the minute," she said.

On being seven months pregnant when it all happened, she explained: "It was really really hard. 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."
