Ulrika Jonsson brands Rebekah Vardy arrogant wannabe after Wagatha case loss

TV personality and former Gladiator presenter Ulrika Jonsson has blasted Rebekah Vardy after she lost her recent case against Coleen Rooney, branded Wagatha Christie.

Footballer's wife Rebekah, 40, took Coleen, 36, to the High Court after she was accused of leaking private messages from the star’s private Instagram account to the press.

But despite losing her battle, Rebekah protested her innocence in a candid interview where she discussed her thoughts and feeling regarding the whole ordeal.

Although, Rebekah is attempting to restore her reputation Ulrika, 54, isn't buying any of her recent claims and labelled her an "arrogant wannabe".

She fumed in her latest column: "The arrogance of Vardy thinking that the rest of us would buy the words of someone who has so damningly been found to be responsible for such a public betrayal of a friend is overwhelming.

"As for her claim of being let down by the legal system, it will leave many people reeling.

"Women who’ve been raped and find that only 1.3 per cent of their cases see the light of court – now THEY can claim they’ve been let down by the court system."

Discussing the verdict for the first time last month, Rebekah said: "I am extremely sad and disappointed at the decision that the Judge has reached.

"It is not the result that I had expected, nor believe was just. I brought this action to vindicate my reputation and am devastated by the Judge’s finding.

"The judge accepted that publication of Coleen's Post was not in the 'public interest' and she also rejected her claim that I was the 'Secret Wag. But as for the rest of her judgement, she got it wrong and this is something I cannot accept."

Taking to her Instagram, Coleen issued a statement which read: "Naturally, I am pleased the judge has found in my favour in her judgement today. It was not a case I ever sought or wanted.

She said: "Both before and after my social media posts in October 2019, I made constant efforts to avoid the need for such a public and drawn-out court case.

"But all my efforts to do so were knocked back by Mrs Vardy and her lawyers."

She continued: "This left me with no alternative but to go through with the case to defend myself and to end the repeated leaking of my private information to The Sun."

"The leaks from my private Instagram account began in 2017. They continued for almost two years, intruding on my privacy and that of my family.

"Although I bear Mrs Vardy no ill will, today’s judgement makes clear that I was right in what I said in my Instagram posts.

She then went on thank her legal team for their support.
