The outing comes amid claims Coleen reportedly sees Rebekah Vardy’s Dancing On Ice stint as a ploy to get the public to like her during their £1 million libel court case.
The wife of Wayne Rooney is said to ‘not be having’ it, as she is certain that she has a solid case against her fellow WAG, 38, in their legal battle.
Speaking to The Sun on Saturday Coleen, who accused Rebekah of selling stories about her last year, joked: ‘She’ll need all the money she can get to take me on.’
Meanwhile a source also spoke to the publication, claiming that the pair were not prepared to ‘back down’ in their case.

Of Coleen’s thoughts on her rival’s decision to sign up to the reality competition show, they said: ‘As far as she is concerned Becky is using it to get the public on her side ahead of their libel trial.
‘Coleen is absolutely certain she is right and is standing true to her beliefs. She knows she might lose and have to pay damages but she doesn’t care.
‘This isn’t about money to her — it’s about principle and honesty and she will shell out however much it takes.’
The source added that Rebekah was keen to put her skates on for Dancing On Ice as she sees it as her way to change people’s perceptions of her, and clear her name.

Rebekah is said to want to be seen as a devoted mother and wife, rather than a ‘snake’ who leaks stories to the press, a claim she has vehemently denied.
MailOnline contacted Coleen and Rebekah’s representatives for comment.
In explosive new documents reportedly seen by The Sun on Saturday, Coleen’s legal team has accused Rebekah of selling private information about other celebrities to the press.
According to the publication, Coleen’s defence has now included the 2001 story from the News of the World which saw Becky claim that she had a fling with Peter.
The papers state: ‘In the interview, the Claimant disclosed amongst other things that (i) she had sexual intercourse with Peter Andre in November 2001, and that it lasted just five minutes…

‘(ii) Peter Andre had “the smallest trouser equipment I’ve ever seen” that was “like a miniature chipolata”…
‘(iii) that he “had absolutely no hairs on his body”; and (iv) he “slaver[ed]” like one of her boxer dogs when he kissed her.’
MailOnline contacted representatives for Coleen Rooney, Rebekah Vardy and Peter Andre for comment at the time.
The documents also claim that Rebekah sat near former friend Coleen at Euro 2016 in order to ‘maximise media attention’.
The papers are said to claim that Becky ditched her allocated seats at the match and deliberately sat near Coleen ‘to guarantee her appearance in the media’.
The documents also reportedly discuss how Becky allegedly worked for The Sun to film a ‘behind the scenes’ video at the National Television Awards in 2018.

It has been reported that Coleen wants to end the £1 million High Court libel battle against Becky set to take place from November.
Sources claim those close to the wife of Derby County footballer Wayne Rooney, 34, have been encouraging her to settle their dispute privately, after her rival confirmed she is taking part in Dancing On Ice and has vowed to ‘clear her name’.
The pair have been at loggerheads ever since Coleen accused Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy’s wife of leaking stories about her to the media last October – a claim she fiercely denies.
An insider told The Sun: ‘Things have gone much further than many had expected.
‘Coleen is a rather shy and private person, so the idea of having personal matters relating to her and Wayne raked over in court is something that fills her with dread.’

According to The Mirror, Coleen and Rebekah will face off in November – just over one year after the former accused the latter of leaking stories about her.
Rebekah is seeking substantial damages in the subsequent libel trial, as she claims to have suffered ‘severe and extreme hostility and abuse’ in the fallout after the claims were published on Instagram.
The Mirror reports that judge Mr. Justice Nicklin has stated a preliminary trial will decide the ‘natural and ordinary’ meaning of Coleen’s social media posts.
He has also given Coleen until October 2 to serve a ‘statement of case’.
