    Rebekah Vardy keeps a low-profile as she arrives at DOI while lawyers kick off ‘Wagatha Christie’

    Rebekah Vardy keeps a VERY low-profile as she arrives at DOI rehearsals while her lawyers kick off her Coleen Rooney ‘Wagatha Christie’ battle in the High Court

    Rebekah Vardy made a low-key arrival at Dancing On Ice rehearsals on Thursday -the same day her Wagatha Christie court case kicked off. 

    The reality star, 38, wife of Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy, pulled her coat over her head as she was photographed arriving at training amid her libel battle with Coleen Rooney over claims she was leaking stories to the press. 

    Prior to her sighting, it was revealed that Coleen is feeling confident of winning the libel case against Rebekah but regrets that it has got ‘this far’.

    Despite widespread speculation, MailOnline revealed that neither Rebekah or Coleen or their famous footballer husbands would to be in court for a preliminary hearing with lawyers representing both WAGs coming face to face for the first time.

    Heading in: Rebekah Vardy made a low-key arrival at Dancing On Ice rehearsals on the same day her Wagatha Christie court case kicked off

    Rebekah launched a £1million High Court libel action after Coleen accused her in an Instagram post a year ago of leaking stories about her and others to the media.

    It is believed that she will deny being ‘The Secret Wag,’ The Sun newspaper’s source of stories about Coleen and other footballers’ partners.

    After hearing legal representations from both sides, a High Court judge will then set out the parameters for the full trial, which is expected to take place next year, when both women will give evidence.

    A spokesman for Coleen told MailOnline: ‘Coleen’s defence is already filed and in the public domain. It sets out the facts of her case and will be the same, whatever is decided today.

    The 'Wagatha Christie' saga began a year ago when Coleen tweeted that she had secretly planted three fake stories on Instagram in the months before, but said she blocked all her followers except Rebekah from seeing them

    The ‘Wagatha Christie’ saga began a year ago when Coleen tweeted that she had secretly planted three fake stories on Instagram in the months before, but said she blocked all her followers except Rebekah from seeing them 

    ‘Given those facts, Coleen remains entirely confident in her position as she has been throughout. It is still a matter of regret to her that the matter has been allowed by the other party to get this far.’

    In a sensational 55-page defence document, Coleen set out in granular detail why she thought Rebekah was behind the anonymous ‘Secret Wag’ column.

    She described Rebekah as having an ‘established history and habitual practice of providing private information to journalists’.

    A source said: ‘Becky is set to swear publicly and on oath to the High Court that she was not the so-called Secret Wag for the newspaper.’

    The Secret Wag issue is seen as central by lawyers on both sides in establishing whether Rebecca did leak stories from Coleen’s private social media accounts to The Sun, which she has consistently denied.

    Shocking: But for her part, Rebekah is seeking substantial damages and says she has suffered 'severe and extreme hostility and abuse' in the fallout after the claims were published on Instagram

    The ‘Wagatha Christie’ saga began a year ago when Coleen tweeted that she had secretly planted three fake stories on Instagram in the months before, but said she blocked all her followers except Rebekah from seeing them.

    After stories appeared which contained references to the faked posts, Coleen famously declared the results of her investigation, announcing: ‘It’s . . . Rebekah Vardy’s account.’

    The mother-of-four, who shares Kai, 10, Klay, seven, Kit, four, and Cass, two, with Derby County footballer Wayne, also 34, is determined to fight off the libel case.

    But for her part, Rebekah is seeking substantial damages and says she has suffered ‘severe and extreme hostility and abuse’ in the fallout after the claims were published on Instagram.

    She is expected to make a bombshell courtroom denial of Coleen‘s claims that she was ‘The Secret Wag’.

    A source said yesterday: ‘Becky is set to swear publicly and on oath to the High Court that she was not the so-called Secret Wag for the newspaper.’ 

    Coleen has a 55 page defence document in which she set out in granular detail why she thought Rebekah was behind the anonymous 'Secret Wag' column in The Sun
