The two WAGs are at war over Rooney’s inflammatory 2019 accusation that Vardy had been leaking stories about her to the media.

Rooney set up a homemade sting operation – earning her the nickname ‘Wagatha Christie’ – which culminated in her public conclusion: “It’s…….Rebekah Vardy’s account”.

The wives of Derby manager Wayne Rooney and Leicester striker Jamie Vardy respectively are due to face off later this year in an explosive libel trial.

Rooney, 35, had wanted to add Vardy’s agent and close friend, Caroline Watt, to the case, claiming misuse of her personal information. But that bid was on Monday refused by Mrs Justice Steyn.

In pre-trial disclosure of texts and messages, it emerged that Ms Watt had been in close contact with Vardy at the time of the October 2019 social media post at the heart of the case.

It is said Ms Watt admitted in messages that she had leaked information about Rooney to the media, and she is also accused of helping Vardy to “concoct” an alleged false defence.

Rooney’s barrister David Sherborne had argued that if Mrs Vardy wins her claim for libel on the basis that she was not the person who leaked the information, then Rooney will be left “without vindication” unless she is able to bring the claim against Ms Watt as part of the same case.

Mrs Vardy’s lawyers opposed the application to add the claim against Ms Watt to the libel case.

In a ruling this afternoon, the judge refused Rooney’s bid on procedural grounds. She also rejected a series of application for the disclosure of more text messages and social media messages.

The judge did agree to some extra limited disclosure of messages, as well as an approach to Instagram for further potential evidence.
