Coleen Rooney has admitted that one of the three fake stories she claimed had leaked from her Instagram account was in fact a 'coincidence.'The mum-of-four took the stand in her libel case against Rebekah Vardy on Friday (May 13) as she began giving evidence in the trial.Coleen, 36, made a series of fake posts to the private account in order to try and trace who she suspected was leaking stories about her to the press.However, one of the stories that eventually appeared she now admits was 'a coincidence' after the journalist who wrote the article came forward to correct her on who she had suspected may have been to blame for it being printed.

The article in question related to rumours of Coleen appearing on hit BBC show Strictly Come Dancing. Coleen said she now accepts that the information in the article did not come from her private account to the newspaper and was in fact sourced elsewhere so it no longer forms part of her case.She said: "It was a coincidence."When it was suggested by Vardy's lawyer Mr Tomlinson that Rooney has no evidence that the source for the two remaining fake stories was Vardy she rebutted the claim.She said: "I believe I do.

I believe it has come from the account and I believe Mrs Vardy knew that it was happening - whether it was Mrs Vardy herself or someone he has given permission to."Responding Tomlinson said: "Your belief is not evidence Mrs Rooney.
