Loose Women: Rebekah Vardy breaks down in tears as she addresses Coleen Rooney drama

Last October, Rooney accused Vardy of selling stories from her private Instagram account to tabloid newspapers, sparking the #WagathaChristie trend on social media and making headlines around the world.

"And you know what, they did!" The story about the gender selection in Mexico, the story about the return to television and then the last story about the basement floods in my new home.

Rebekah Vardy broke down on Loose Women yesterday.

The fall out that came next would almost kill Rebekah.

During an appearance on ITV's Loose Women, Vardy broke down in tears as she said she was trolled by members of the public after Rooney alleged she had turned detective to prove Vardy's Instagram account was the source of leaked stories about her private life.

The statement read: "Coleen remains confident in the legal process and sees no reason to take the numerous opportunities that have been offered to engage in further public debate in this matter.she has nothing to add to what she has already said".

Vardy said: "It was really, really hard, it's probably up there with one of the worst things I've had to deal with, apart from being abused by my stepdad when I was younger".

Rebekah, who was heavily pregnant at the time, denied the claims.

"We were just about to meet to go for dinner with some friends and we were just in a taxi, my manager messaged me and said you need to see this", she added.

In that moment, she was shocked.

Rebekah says, "I think people just don't realise when they're saying stuff how it affects you". "I think the trolling was the worst part - this was a whole new level". Get Me Out of Here alum revealed.

She tearfully continued: "I had people messaging me saying nasty stuff and one in particular [said], "you fat ugly rat I hope you and your baby rot".

Vardy maintains her innocence, saying: "I'm not being amusing but I don't need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?"

The mother-of-five recalled the effect of backlash and subsequent trolling on her physical and mental health. "I ended up with severe anxiety attacks, I ended up in hospital three times", Rebekah, who gave birth in December, admitted. I had kidney stones.

"I felt like I couldn't go out without people just looking at me and questioning, 'Did she do it?" 'No one would ever say anything to your face; they never do, do they.

In October a year ago, Rebekah was explosively accused by Coleen of leaking stories about her to The Sun newspaper - a claim she fiercely denies - leading to a WAG war which captivated the nation.
