REBEKAH Vardy was left distressed and anxious after being named as the source of media leaks by Coleen Rooney, court documents claim.

It led to internet trolls lashing out, even linking her to Islamic State and the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Coleen had “pointed the finger” at Rebekah as “the villain” who allegedly leaked stories about her private life, the High Court heard yesterday.

Footballer Wayne Rooney’s wife, 34, was dubbed “Wagatha Christie” on social media after claiming she had narrowed down leaks to a newspaper to Rebekah.

Coleen said she planted fake stories about going to Mexico, returning to TV, and a flood at her new house.

After allegedly narrowing down the source, she wrote on Twitter: “It’s... Rebekah Vardy’s account.”

Footballer Jamie Vardy’s wife, 38, denies the accusations and is suing Coleen for libel.

Her written claim, filed in June, detailed “very high levels of public abuse and CASE ridicule” it caused. Her barrister Hugh Tomlinson QC wrote that she felt suicidal, took three trips to hospital due to her anxiety and worried about losing her baby due to the stress.
