Coleen Rooney decorates her home with ice skates in weird ‘nod’ to Rebekah Vardy

Coleen Rooney has decorated her home with ice skates in what could be perceived as a strange nod to her rival Rebekah Vardy.

The WAGs are in the midst of a high-profile legal battle after Wayne Rooney’s wife Coleen said in an explosive statement that stories from her private Instagram account were being leaked to the press by the account belonging to Jamie Vardy’s wife.

Rebekah, who was pregnant at the time, denied responsibility and is now suing Coleen for libel.

Rebekah is also in the middle of training for her stint on Dancing On Ice, which kicks off next year.

Her involvement in the ITV reality show might lead to some fans being quite confused about Coleen’s Christmas tree, which has life-size ice skates hanging from it.

Coleen stands by her statement

Sharing a picture of her heavily decorated tree on her Instagram story, Coleen thanks the Festive Group and Carolyn Hughes PR for providing her with the “gorgeous” tree.

As well as giant baubles and snowy acorns, the tree has ice skates hanging from it, which could remind Coleen of Becky every time she walks into the room.

On her Instagram account, Coleen also shared a string of sweet pictures of her sons, Kai, 11, Klay, seven, Kit, four, and Cass, two, as they posed up for a Christmas photoshoot in matching red pyjamas.

Last year, Coleen was branded ‘Wagatha Christie’ when she revealed she had laid a trap on her private Instagram account after becoming suspicious of her followers.

Coleen said information she was posting to just her close friends and family was being leaked to a national newspaper and that she eventually blocked every account but Rebekah’s from seeing her posts, only to find that the stories were still being leaked.

After Coleen released her infamous “It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account” statement, Rebekah denied the allegations and said she was disappointed that she hadn’t come directly to her to deal with it.

As the court proceedings began last month, a statement from Rebekah claimed that she had been abused by trolls and was left feeling suicidal after Coleen’s statement.

Vile trolls went as far as to link Rebekah to Islamic State and the disappearance of Madeleine McCann after she was painted as a “villain” by Coleen.

Rebeakah’s barrister Hugh Tomlinson QC said she had felt suicidal, visited hospital three times due to her anxiety and worried she could lose her baby over the stress she was going through.

He said: “The claimant has suffered extreme distress, hurt, anxiety and embarrassment.”

After Coleen’s statement dropped, some social media users parodied it to joke that Rebekah was the leader of the Islamic State and that she’d been involved in Maddie’s disappearance in Portugal in 2007.

Mr Tomlinson added: “Following the police announcing that a new suspect had been identified in the disappearance of Madeline McCann, the claimant was the subject of highly distressing publications on Twitter alleging she was the suspect.”

He went on: “In fact, [Rebekah] did nothing wrong. Whatever leaks there were did not come from her.”

Coleen has denied any wrongdoing.

In a written defence, her lawyers argued the post was “entirely legitimate and justified” and said that the stories had been derived from Rebekah’s account, rather than her directly.

David Sherborne, representing Coleen, wrote: “The claimant was responsible for consistently passing on information about the defendant’s private Instagram posts and stories to [a newspaper], with whom she had a very close relationship.”

The judge ruled in Rebekah’s favour at the first stage of the libel trial, saying that Coleen must now prove it was Rebekah herself who leaked the stories rather than someone else who had access to her account.
