In 2019, Coleen accused former I'm A Celebrity star Rebekah of leaking stories from her private Instagram account to The Sun after a months-long sting operation. Rebekah, who is married to professional footballer Jamie Vardy, denied the accusation and is now suing 36-year-old Coleen for libel.

Coleen's husband Wayne is set to give evidence

Coleen's husband Wayne Rooney, alongside his cousin, Clare Rooney, will be among the witnesses to give evidence during the trial, according to the skeleton case set out. They are due to give evidence on the sixth day of the seven-day trial.

It is not yet certain whether Rebekah's footballer husband, Jamie Vardy, will be giving evidence. Another witness for the case will be Andrew Halls, a journalist at The Sun who wrote one of the leaked stories.
