Pictured: Rebekah Varidy was just months away from being dragged into The Sun’s leaks row by her agent.

  • Rebekah Vardy and her agent were invited to a VIP box hired by The Sun in 2019
  • Months later, she was accused of leaked Coleen Rooney stories to the tabloid 
  • Caroline Watt and Ms Vardy can be seen taking photos from the glamorous night. 

Rebekah and her agent were treated to a glamorous night by the Sun, months before Coleen Rooney, a fellow WAG accused of having leaked news to the paper.

Caroline Watt was invited to an exclusive VIP box, which the tabloid had hired out for the National Television Awards in London’s O2 Arena.

A photograph from the night – one of the showbiz events of the year – shows the two women posing with the late Love Island star Mike Thalassitis and socialite Lizzie Cundy in the box, which is thought to have cost about £10,000 and usually comes fully stocked with champagne and high-quality food.

This image was revealed when Mrs Watt was brought into the “Wagatha Christie” legal battle in which Mrs Vardy sued Mrs Rooney.

The matter began when Mrs Rooney (the wife of Wayne Rooney), claimed that in October 2019, Mrs Vardy had told a series stories about her to The Sun.

Mrs Vardy strongly denies this allegation. Mrs Rooney (35) claimed that the stories were all obtained via her private Instagram account. She allowed 300 friends and relatives to follow it.

The Sun invited Ms Vardy (and her agent) to a glamorous night-out just months after Coleen Rooney, a fellow WAG (pictured), accused Vardy of leaked stories to the paper.

After becoming concerned about the publication of her information, she set up a trap by sending fake updates to fewer people to try to locate the leaker.

According to Mrs Rooney’s legal team, court papers demand Mrs Vardy or Mrs Watt provide details about their private communications.

The Honourable Justice Nicklin has called for a hearing in order to establish what records should be released and whether Instagram should have to be requested to make them public.

Mrs Watt, 39, is also cited as a respondent in the hearing – the first time she has been formally named in the case, which has been rumbling on for more than 18 months.

Mrs Watt and Mrs Vardy also attended the TV awards together with Richard Madden (star of BBC1’s hit drama Bodyguard).

Ms Vardy with her husband footballer Jamie Vardy. Mrs Rooney, the wife of former Manchester United and England star Wayne Rooney, claimed in October 2019 that Mrs Vardy, 39, had given a series of stories about her to The Sun

With her husband, Jamie Vardy. Mrs Rooney claimed Mrs Vardy had, at 39, given several stories about her to The Sun in October 2019, according to Mrs Rooney.

Two-time mother of two Mrs. Watt was married to Steve Watt who played for Chelsea, Swansea City and became manager of Hythe town in Kent. Mrs Vardy has known Mrs Watt for at least six year.

When her husband Jamie Vardy became a star in Leicester City, the ex- Virgin Atlantic hostess took over Mrs Vardy’s management.

She oversaw her client’s newspaper and magazine interviews and also brokered the deal for Mrs Vardy to appear on the hit reality TV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2018

She was an avid visitor to Vardys’ Lincolnshire house before the pandemic.

Formerly employed at The Frontrow Partnership as a talent agent, Mrs Watt left to start her own business in 2019. Her clients include Nicola McLean, Page 3’s former Page 3 girl.

The hearing will discuss Mrs Rooney’s request for “specific disclosure” of Mrs Vardy’s and Mrs Watt information in February. It is scheduled ahead of the potentially explosive court battle of the wives of warring footballers.
