As their court case looms on, Rebekah Vardy has denied setting up a World Cup picture with her fellow WAGS in 2018, without telling them in court statements.

The mum-of-five, whose team previously rubbished claims of Coleen Rooney having a 'mystery spy' in her camp, denied her rival's claims.

Coleen, 34, stated in her court papers that Becky, 38, wanted the group of women to pose together but failed to tell the ladies that she had "arranged" for the paparazzi to take pictures of them.

The court papers also stated that Becky received money for the alleged staged photograph after it was sold to the media.

The document said: "It can be inferred that the claimant received payment (directly or indirectly) for this staged photograph."

However, Becky's court documents claim that she "had nothing to do with the photograph" and "received no payment."

The claims come after Becky, who is gearing up to appear on Dancing On Ice, was triumphant in the first stages of her court case against Coleen.

Coleen's defence team said she had "reasonable grounds" to think Rebekah or anyone who had access to her Instagram account had broken her trust.

But the high court judge Mr Justice Warby agreed with Rebekah's lawyers that the post directly accused Rebekah of leaking the stories.

Mr Justice Warby explained that Coleen's message was a straight forward allegation that "over a period of years Ms Vardy had regularly and frequently abused her status as a trusted follower of Ms Rooney's personal Instagram account."

The judge continued: "I certainly do not think that the ordinary reader would take the single word (account), albeit repeated, to indicate that Mrs Rooney remains in doubt about who the wrongdoer was.

"There is nothing in these words, apart from the word "account", that in any way suggests that the behaviour of which Mrs Rooney is complaining might have been carried out by anyone other than the account holder, Mrs Vardy."

As a result of the ruling, Mr Justice Warby instructed Coleen to pay Becky just under £23,000 in costs.
