‘I’ll say it until I’m blue in the face, I did NOT do it’: Tearful Rebekah Vardy speaks for first time since losing Wagatha Christie case to deny leaking stories about Coleen Rooney and claim she was ‘let down by the legal system’… as she faces £3M bill
Rebekah Vardy broke down in tears today as she spoke out for the first time since her £3million Wagatha Christie libel defeat to once again deny leaking stories about Coleen Rooney, telling an interviewer: ‘I’ll say it until I’m blue in the face, I did not do it’.
The 40-year-old, whose reputation has been left in tatters by the case, added in an interview with TalkTV’s Kate McCann: ‘I feel let down by a lot of people, a lot of things. But importantly I feel let down by the legal system.’
Mrs Vardy, wife of Leicester City footballer Jamie, was told by a High Court judge that her evidence was ‘evasive and implausible; and was accused of deliberately deleting WhatsApp messages central to the case.
The TalkTV interview – a clip of which was published today – is likely to be the first of a series of efforts to restore her reputation that may include a documentary, a biography and two retail campaigns.
Sources close to Vardy hope a bidding war will break out among production companies, five of which are said to be interested, to create a documentary on the infamous case.
Bidders are expected to offer between £50,000 and £250,000 for her involvement, The Times reports.
