Rebekah Vardy has told her side of the Wagatha Christie trial against former pal Coleen Rooney – and dropped some shockers in the process. Buckle up and brace yourself for the top five Becky bombshells from the past few weeks.
Lord of the Rings vs Hot Potato
With no cameras allowed, artists captured the courtroom drama – but they were more Picasso than da Vinci. One fan noted the sketch of Rebekah eerily resembled a fantasy character, with Becky clapping back, “I’d rather look like something out of Lord of the Rings than a hot potato.” And with that insult, the WAG got personal – Wayne Rooney’s sketch was compared to a baked spud earlier in the trial.
Bin bags in the car
Shunning some stick-on car blinds, mum-of-five Rebekah revealed that her kids were “driven to school with bin liners against the windows.” The star – who is mum to Megan, 17, and Taylor, 11, from previous relationships, Sofia, six, Finlay, four, and Olivia, one, with husband Jamie, as well as step-mum to Ella, nine – insisted her children were “innocent in this.”
Admitting to pap pics
Rebekah did admit to setting up paparazzi pictures – but insisted that everyone does it. “I have always said I do set up pictures,” the 40-year-old explained, adding “Anyone in this industry that pretends they don’t are ridiculous. Just own it. I’ll probably do it again. There’s no shame in it.”
Caffe Nero dates
Rebekah extended an olive branch by admitting that if she bumped into rival Coleen, she would invite her “for a Caffe Nero.” It’s unlikely Coleen will take up the offer, as the WAG seemingly responding by paying a quick visit to an upmarket coffee shop with her kids – no Rebekah in sight.
Not bothered about legal fees
Rebekah laughed off claims that the pair will sell their holiday home to pay the £3 million legal fees, insisting she’s “not worried at all.”
“The legal fees with be dealt with privately, the way they should be,” she said – and any claims the pair will have to part ways with their homes abroad are “categorically not true.”
