The documentary looks to get Coleen’s unfiltered thoughts on the trial and viral social media post that accused “Rebekah Vardy’s account” of leaking details about her private life to the media. The situation ultimately led to Coleen being dubbed ‘Wagatha Christie’ in reference to detective author Agatha Christie. Rebekah denied the allegations.

In July 2022, a High Court judge ruled that it was “likely” Vardy had passed information to a tabloid newspaper, and the court found in Coleen’s favour.

Speaking recently to The TimesColeen reflected on Rebekah’s involvement, and how she was initially surprised that a fellow footballer’s wife would do this.

“Obviously Rebekah has lived my life to a degree, in the public eye,” said Coleen.

“So I never thought someone would do that to someone else. But I knew she enjoyed the limelight and would do things only to be in the public eye. And the more I knew, the more I wasn’t surprised.”
