Irish Club Sligo Rovers Make Contract Announcement By Editing Coleen Rooney/Rebekah Vardy Row
If you were living under a rock on Wednesday, then you'll have missed Rebekah Vardy denying Coleen Rooney's extraordinary claims that she's been selling stories about her to The Sun.
It all kicked off when Rooney posted a statement on social media.
The 33-year-old said she had been planting fake information about her life on Instagram, only to see the stories end up in the tabloid newspaper.
Coleen went on to claim that she blocked users on her private account, and that only Rebekah Vardy's account had viewed the stories.
"This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it......"

It didn't take long for Vardy to deny the claim.
