READ MORE: Coleen Rooney ‘felt vulnerable’ after husband’s drink-drive arrest “I always got the impression that no topic was ever really off the table as far as Becky was concerned,” she wrote in her statement.

In her own witness statement Mrs Vardy, who denies leaking information, accused Mrs Rooney of making “a very wide-ranging attack on me and a series of outrageous claims about my dealings with journalists”.

She added that it was “false” that she was “some kind of favoured close collaborator with The Sun and spend my time leaking information to them in exchange for self promotion”.

The court heard on Friday that from late January 2019 Mrs Rooney took to Google for research after she suspected a link with The Sun. “This whole thing was not something I thought of overnight,” she said, adding: “I’m not one to be quick to jump on things. ”In her statement, Mrs Rooney listed eight “examples” of the “high-profile coverage” Mrs Vardy had previously received in Sun stories.
