Coleen Rooney vs Rebekah Vardy: the best tweets on a glorious day for the internet

Rebekah Vardy

Coleen Rooney has accused Rebekah Vardy of selling her private stories to the media via Instagram, and Twitter has stepped up to do what it does best.

After suspecting that Rebekah – who is married to Leicester striker Jamie – of leaking information to a British tabloid, Coleen blocked all but one of her Instagram followers from viewing her stories.

The wife of former England international Wayne then began to make up fictitious events – including two related to "gender selection" in Mexico and a flood in the basement of her new house – to see if they continued appearing in the press.

And then came the Poirot-esque bombshell: Rooney revealed on Wednesday that she had blocked every account from seeing her Instagram Stories... except Vardy's. 

In a great advert for the Notes app, the 37-year-old Rebekah has denied that she is behind the leaks and says she is “disgusted” by Rooney’s allegations.

Football fans probably anticipated a quiet few days at the start of the October international break, but the spat between two spouses of former England strikers has brought Twitter to life.
