Watch: Coleen Rooney wins legal costs from Rebekah Vardy amid ongoing libel battle

It's a saga none of us will ever... forget. If you cast your mind back to October of 2019 (sidenote: where has the time gone?), you'll recall that it was around then that Coleen Rooney, who is married to footballer Wayne Rooney, accused the account of a fellow footballer's wife, Rebekah Vardy, of leaking stories about her to the press.

In a now infamous tweet, Rooney claimed that she had created false stories – including being so desperate to conceive a girl she'd looked into gender selection options – and posted them on Instagram Stories, while deliberately hiding them from all accounts bar Vardy's. 

Outlining her sleuthing, Rooney then delivered the immortal words: "It's.... Rebekah Vardy's account" to sign off from her post about the mystery. Vardy has consistently denied any wrongdoing, claiming others must have been able to access her account, and has since sued Rooney for libel in an ongoing case.

Now, the fall-out, dubbed Wagatha Christie in honour of Rooney's detective work, may well be about to spawn a documentary detailing the leaked stories and subsequent media attention Rooney's tweet received.

According to The Mirror, Rooney wants to "let the public make their own minds up" and is in "advanced talks" with Lorton Entertainment, which previously made a documentary about Wayne Rooney.

It's said that filming could start as soon as in the New Year, before the libel trial in the High Court, which is to commence in the summer.

A source apparently told The Mirror: "Coleen has remained quiet ever since that famous online post. But this could all change in what could be the TV event of the year.

Viewers would see all the evidence that Coleen has forensically gathered via her online sleuthing and see why she is convinced that Rebekah leaked the stories about her and others. She is minded to get it all out into the pubic domain and let people make their own minds up. Talks are very well advanced."

Lorton Entertainment also created the documentary about Oasis, Supersonic, and After the Screaming Stops about '80s pop stars, twins Matt and Luke Goss.

We have reached out to Coleen Rooney's team for comment.
