Rebekah Vardy calls Wayne Rooney out for looking ‘like a potato’ in court sketches


Rebekah Vardy Rooney 'like a potato'

She thought the likenesses were less than a-peeling

Rebekah Vardy has remarked that she thought Wayne Rooney looked like a “hot potato” in the court sketches produced as part of her legal battle against his wife Coleen.

The case dubbed ‘Wagatha Christie’ concluded on July 29, with Vardy losing to former friend Coleen after the former attempted to sue for “leaking false stories” to the papers and social media back in 2019.

Speaking to The Sun in a recent interview following the verdict, the 40-year-old was reacting to some of the comments directed at her own depiction in the drawings, one of which remarked: “She looks like something out of Lord of the Rings.”

The mum of two responded to the suggestion with a dig of her own, replying: “I’d rather look like something out of Lord of the Rings than a hot potato.”

While Vardy appeared in emotional in the interview, breaking down in tears and stating the she feels she has been “let down by a lot of people” including the “legal system”, she had no issue with firing back at Coleen’s husband Wayne who was entirely uninvolved in the tabloid saga.

Revealing that she asked Coleen “what the f*** is this?” following her now infamous social media post. Vardy still insists she is innocent, insisting: “I will say it till I’m blue in the face, I didn’t do it.”

Nevertheless, despite trying to sue Rooney for damages inflicted upon her, Vardy now reportedly faces legal bills of up to £3 million for her time spent in court, with the judge having ruled her evidence as “manifestly inconsistent… evasive or implausible”

Tough spuds.
