How Coleen Rooney snared Becky Vardy by planting these three fake stories on her personal InstagramAugust 3, 2022
COLEEN set her trap by posting three fake stories on her personal Instagram page which unbeknown to Rebekah were only shared with her account.
When those stories appeared in the papers Coleen announced her findings to the world.
True – pyjama pic that sparked plot
A LEAKED snap of Wayne and his family in spotty pyjamas was central to the case — and not faked.
Coleen told London’s High Court it was taken after they split up following his 2am drink-drive bust with party girl Laura Simpson in 2017.
Stories speculated all had been forgiven and that the marriage was on track.
Coleen said: “I didn’t know my marriage was going to work out. I didn’t want the public to know.”
Fake – flying out for baby’s gender
COLEEN’S first fake “Scousetrap” post in April 2019 featured a snap on board a passenger jet heading to Mexico with the caption: “Let’s go and see what this gender selection is all about.”
A screenshot she later took showed it was only “seen by 1”.
Fake – hinting at I’m A Celeb role
IN September 2019, Coleen posted a fake story hinting she might be in I’m a Celebrity.
A selfie was accompanied by the caption: “Up and out!! Easing my way back into work!! TV decisions today…maybe time for Australia.”
It was only seen by Rebekah’s account.
Fake – the flooded basement story
IN October 2019 she posted a picture of a wine bottle, saying: “Needed after today… flood in the basement of our new house… when it all seemed to be going so well.”
The fake — again seen by one account — was the last piece of evidence.
