Rebekah Vardy launches probe to uncover ‘mole’ in her circle amid libel battle with Coleen Rooney

Rebekah Vardy has launched her own ‘Wagatha-style’ investigation to find out who is leaking secrets about her amid her ongoing libel battle with Coleen Rooney.

Reports last week claimed WAG rival Coleen, 34, had received information from a mole inside the camp of Dancing On Ice Star Becky, 38.

And MailOnline can exclusively reveal that ‘fuming’ Becky has turned detective in the past 48 hours to try and get to the bottom of who it, demanding: ‘Find the mole!’

A source said: ‘Becky is furious and is determined to get to the bottom of who has been gossiping behind her back.

‘She wants to find out what’s going on and what it is Coleen supposedly has on her.

‘Becky has also been doing her own detective work to try and see who Coleen might be speaking to and, most importantly, what they’ve said.

‘The last few months have been incredibly stressful for Becky and this has all come out of nowhere. But Becky remains totally determined to get a full apology.

‘She knows there is a danger this could all become very messy but she’s not going to be bullied or pushed around by anyone, least of all Coleen.’

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Rebekah Vardy for further comment. 

According to reports last week, the mystery mole is lined up to be a star witness for Coleen.

She believes the evidence from an ex-pal of Becky could be a game changer in their Wagatha Christie legal battle.

Sources say the insider is prepared to oppose Becky in court amid claims that she leaked stories about Coleen to the Press.

Becky is suing Coleen for libel damages over claims that she had leaked stories about the wife of former England football player Wayne Rooney.

But Charlotte Harris, of Becky’s legal firm Kingsley Napley, said: ‘There can be no “mystery witness” to something that did not happen.

‘The simple fact is that Rebekah Vardy did not leak Coleen Rooney’s private Instagram posts and nothing can change that.’

The warring WAGs have until February 8 to reach a settlement – or dig in for a five-day libel hearing later next year.

Becky, wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, 33, took an early lead in their battle the last week.

A High Court judge ruled Coleen’s post in October 2019 detailing her detective work to uncover the source of leaked stories did point the finger directly at Becky.

He dismissed arguments from Coleen’s legal team that her 230-word post was, in fact, aimed at those in control of Becky’s Instagram account.

And he ordered Coleen to pay Becky’s £22,913.50 legal costs for the hearing.

The ruling means Coleen must prove Becky alone was responsible for the leaks to the media if she is to successfully defend the lawsuit.

Becky denies being the leak and is seeking aggravated damages for libel and costs.

She is set to submit her formal ‘reply’ to Coleen’s defence in the next fortnight.

The pair will then go for mediation in a bid to thrash out a deal that satisfies both parties. The summit won’t go ahead until February 2021 at the earliest.

Last week, a spokesman for Coleen said: ‘A number of people have been in touch with Coleen to offer support and information.

‘She remains as confident as she always has been of winning her case, should it ever reach a full court hearing – something she has never wanted.’
