Wagatha Christie trial: Every star namechecked so far including Peter Andre and Dawn Ward

The libel trial between Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy kicked off at the High Court in London on 10 May, with the two WAGs going head-to-head over the coming days.

Rebekah, 40, is suing Coleen, 36, for libel after she penned a tweet in October 2019 claiming that Rebekah's Instagram account was linked to stories about her to the press.

Mum-of-five Rebekah vehemently denies the claims, and is seeking damages and an order to prevent Coleen from repeating the allegations.

The duo's famous husbands – former England footballer Wayne, 36, and Leicester City ace Jamie, 35 – have been discussed in the trial and Wayne is also set to give evidence. And, a handful of other famous faces have also been discussed in court.

Let's take a look at the celebrities who have found themselves mentioned in the Wagatha Christie trial so far…

Peter Andre

On the first day, Coleen's barrister David Sherborne referenced a 2004 interview Rebekah gave to the News Of The World newspaper.

The 40 year old spoke about a sexual encounter with singer Peter Andre, 49.

David presented an A3 print out of the article to Rebekah in court, and proceeded to read out the headline: "Peter's hung like a chipolata, shaved, slobbery, lasts five minutes."

Coleen's barrister then continued by reading out different parts of the article, which included comments from Rebekah regarding Peter's manhood.

She said that the dad-of-four had "the smallest trouser equipment I've ever seen" and that it was like a "miniature chipolata", while also stating that their sexual encounter lasted "just five minutes".

Pete has since defended himself, and took to Instagram to speak out about the trial. He wrote: “Do you know how hard it is to keep biting my lip on situations? But the way I look at it, most people saw in the jungle how an acorn turned into an oak so I think I’m OK.”

"At least she has now admitted it wasn’t true. And was forced to say it.”

Harry Maguire's fiancée

Another famous face who was mentioned on the first day was fellow WAG Fern Hawkins, 27, who is Manchester United ace Harry Maguire's fiancée.

The court heard how Fern was left "upset and embarrassed" when Rebekah allegedly helped set up a WAGs photo at the World Cup in Russia in 2018.

Fern, Rebekah and seven other WAGs headed to dinner together in St Petersburg on the day before England's first-round match against Belgium.

The group were greeted by a string of photographers as they headed to the restaurant, and were then arranged into a line to pose for a snap together.

WhatsApp messages Rebekah sent to her agent Caroline Watt show the 40 year old suggesting when photographers might be able to a "good pic" of the WAGs.

One of the messages she sent to Caroline said: "We may have to walk to restaurant from hotel now…so might be a good pic of us walking down it’s about 10/15 mins away."

Rebekah has previously denied any involvement in the staging of the photo.

Dawn Ward and Leanne Brown

Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward, 48, was one of the first celebrities to be dragged into the Wagatha Christie case.

Texts between Rebekah and her agent Caroline show Rebekah suggesting Dawn, who is married to former footballer Ashley Ward, 51, could be responsible for leaking stories about Coleen.

Rebekah also mentioned RHOC star Leanne Brown, 45, who is married to former Manchester United ace Wes, 42.

In one text which was sent in February 2019, Rebekah wrote: "She (Coleen) thinks it's me that's been doing the stories on her! Of all the people on her Instagram ffs! Leanne Brown etc x."

Leanne is one of Coleen's closest pals, and there is no evidence that she or Dawn have leaked stories about Coleen.
