The trial began this week – some two years after 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.

The trail is set to last for seven days. On day six, Coleen's husband, Wayne, will give evidence.

It is thought he will elaborate on the claim made by Coleen's lawyer that he was unaware of the fake posts that Coleen was posting on a private Instagram account, which were shared with the intention of revealing who was behind the stories being printed in the press. It's not yet known if Jamie will give evidence.

Rebekah's lawyer, Hugh Tomlinson, told the court that there was "no direct evidence" that his client had leaked the stories, highlighting how it's well-known that many celebrities have their accounts managed by others alongside themselves.
