Coleen Rooney responds after Rebekah Vardy’s emotional Loose Women interview

Coleen Rooney has responded to Rebekah Vardy's recent interview with ITV's Loose Women, saying in a statement that she has "nothing to add".

In her first live appearance since the so-called 'Wagatha Christie' scandal last year, Rebekah told yesterday's (February 13) Loose Women that claims she had been selling stories to the press were "really hard" to deal with.

In the emotional interview, Rebekah told the panel: "It was up there with one of the worst things I've had to deal with – apart from being abused... when I was younger.

"I had severe anxiety attacks," she added. "I ended up in hospital three times. I had kidney stones. I felt I couldn't go out without people questioning if I did it."

She then claimed that she had posted a number of false stories to see if they appeared in the news, before saying Rebekah's account was the one she thought was responsible. Rebekah, who was heavily pregnant at the time, denied the claims.
