Rebekah Vardy, 40, was left shame-faced after she lost her libel trial against Coleen Rooney, and described the situation as an “embarrassing spectacle”. However, now she is insisting, in a public post aimed at her rival, that Coleen should create something positive from the situation by donating the mammoth sum to a charity.

Let’s hope you put your money where your mouth is!

Rebekah, the wife of Leicester City premiership footballer Jamie Vardy, is expected to pay an eye-watering installment of £800,000 to Coleen by mid-November.

Following the news on Tuesday, Coleen said in a statement: “I never believed it should have gone to court at such expense in times of hardship for so many people when the money could have been far better spent helping others.”

Rebekah doesn’t seem prepared to let her forget the comment, and has pointedly suggested that she should “put her money where her mouth is” and give it all away.

The disgruntled WAG posted a photo of a money jar labelled “Charity” and heckled her rival with it.

She included part of a report from the trial which read: “She’d be far happier to see the money they would have spent on lawyers being used in a more positive and productive way.”

While tagging Coleen, Rebekah then wrote: “Let’s hope you put your money where your mouth is and some good can come of this whole embarrassing spectacle!”

It follows a cryptic post in which the defeated WAG claimed: “It’s always the ones with the dirty hands pointing the fingers!”

Fortunately, Jamie has signed a new deal with Leicester City, which will earn him around £160,000 per week.

Yet according to MoneySaving Expert’s online income tax calculator, he will end up grossing £4.386 million per year, meaning if he decided to settle the legal bill for his wife it would comprise almost a quarter of his wage. 

The legal battle, which was dubbed “the trial of the century” originally came about when Coleen accused Rebekah of leaking private information from her Instagram account to the media.

She called her out publicly, pointing the finger at her over stories she’d deliberately made up and shared with no-one else but Rebekah, after having suspicions she was responsible for the leaks.

More claims emerged during the trial itself, including the allegation that Rebekah had deleted vital WhatsApp messages pertaining to the case.

It was also suggested that her agent had intentionally dropped a phone of hers into the North Sea to conceal what was on it.

Some of the “fake stories” which Coleen had planted on Instagram Stories included a fictitious claim that she had travelled to Mexico to look into “baby gender selection” treatment in a bid to finally have a daughter.

In 2019, the #WagathaChristie hashtag began trending, after Coleen publicly accused Rebekah, inevitably leading to the recent trial.

The following year, Rebekah appeared on Loose Women in floods of tears, claiming she had “ended up in hospital three times” after suffering anxiety attacks over the allegations which she vehemently denied.
