Wayne Rooney & Jamie Vardy dragged into Wagatha Christie row as they join Coleen and Becky for crunch talks


WAYNE Rooney and Jamie Vardy look set to be dragged into the Wagatha Christie legal battle.

The footballers, formerly great pals as England team-mates, are likely to join their wives for crunch talks.

In her only face-to-face hearing with Coleen Rooney, held via Zoom earlier this year, Becky Vardy, 38, was joined by Leicester striker hubby Jamie, 33.

But Derby and ex-Everton and Manchester United star Wayne, 35, was absent.

Coleen, 34, being sued for libel after accusing Becky of leaking stories about her, is determined he will be with her for the mediation hearing likely to happen in the New Year.

A source said yesterday: “These talks could easily end up with fireworks and a blazing row. Having Wayne with her will be a massive boost for Coleen.”

Coleen last year turned detective before blaming Becky’s Instagram account for leaks about her.

A judge ruled on Friday Coleen “clearly identified” her. He also ordered Coleen to pay £23,000 to cover Becky’s preliminary High Court hearing costs.

Coleen must now prove Becky alone was responsible for the leaks. But our source added: “Coleen and her team have new evidence."
