REBEKAH Vardy broke down for a THIRD time today forcing a break in the Wagatha Christie trial – and then returned to the dock to sob AGAIN.
The Wag, 39, slammed "hurtful trolls" as she went head-to-head with Coleen Rooney, 35, after she accused her of leaking stories to the press.
She sobbed in the witness stand at the High Court this morning as her evidence continued.
Rebekah said she was forced to endure "hurtful and upsetting" abuse from trolls after Coleen's infamous Wagatha post went viral.
The judge suggested a short break so Rebekah could compose herself – although she wept again moments after returning.
She broke down as she told how her baby was born in December 2019 – just two months after Coleen's post.

Rebekah admitted she was "not in a good place" at the time.
She also revealed she feared losing the baby after the Wagatha post and said it left her suffering from "constant anxiety, panic attacks".
Bringing her evidence to a close, Rebekah said she felt "bullied" and "manipulated" over the past four days.
When asked why she took the case to court, she added: "I didn't do anything wrong – I wanted to clear my name, and not just for me, for my family and my children."

Becky Vardy breaks down in tears at lawyer's jibe – after 'Davy Jones' blunder
Her tears came after she admitted branding Peter Andre’s manhood a “chipolata” was one of her “biggest regrets”.
She made the comment in a 2004 kiss-and-tell story on the Mysterious Girl singer.
Peter, 49, was forced to speak up this week after the comment re-emerged at the blockbuster trial.
But Rebekah said today: "The circumstances of that article I have gone into already which I am deeply sorry for.
"It's shameful and one of my biggest regrets."
The explosive trial kicked off this week in spectacular fashion as Rebekah broke down twice while giving evidence.
She was accused of lying after denying she set up paparazzi to take pics of Wags during the 2018 World Cup.
Rebekah also claimed she was "distracted" by Gemma Collins "faceplanting" on Dancing on Ice when agent her Caroline Watt admitted in texts she'd tipped off the press about Coleen's 2019 car crash in Washington.
Coleen's barrister David Sherborne then confused the mum-of-five when he asked about Miss Watt losing her phone in the North Sea days after she was ordered to turn it over.
The lawyer asked: "We know that Miss Watt's phone is now in Davy Jones' Locker, don't we, Mrs Vardy?"
Rebekah, who was clearly baffled, then replied: "I'm sorry, I don't know who Davy Jones is."
As people in the room burst out laughing, the judge explained it's an idiom for the bottom of the sea.
Despite the brief moment of levity, Rebekah left the witness box in tears following jabs from Mr Sherborne.
After complaints of poor form from Rebekah's lawyer Hugh Tomlinson, judge Mrs Justice Steyn rapped the barrister.
She branded his jibes "unnecessary" and told him: "There's not really enough time for those comments in any event."
Shortly afterwards, the court was adjourned for a second time after Rebekah put her head in her hands and sobbed: "There's been a lot of abuse."
Coleen turned detective in October 2019 and accused Rebekah of sharing stories from her personal Instagram account.
In the infamous post, Coleen said she posted a string of false stories via her Instagram account with restricted access to see if they appeared in the media, which they did.
