How to watch Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story?
Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story is being released as a three-part series on Disney+.
It takes that name after the losing half of the trial trademarked the phrase ‘Wagatha Christie’ earlier in 2023, meaning that could not form part of the title.
The three images comprising first look were revealed almost a year after Disney’s streaming platform secured the rights.
The documentary has been made by Dorothy Street Pictures and Lorton Entertainment, with Lucy Bowden both directing and producing it.
Lorton Entertainment also produced Coleen’s husband’s documentary Rooney in 2022.
What is Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story about?
The series will not only chart the entire High Court trial right until the judge ruled in Coleen’s favour and declared that her post was ‘substantially true,’ but also the backstory to the case which so gripped the British public.
It will be told through the woman at the heart of it all, Coleen Rooney, as well as using interviews with her family and friends, and some of the key figures in the trial itself.
In going over the background, it reveals how Coleen morphed into an online sleuth to find an explanation for why private stories concerning her and her family continued to appear in The Sun.
Her investigation led to the infamous Instagram post concluding: ‘It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account.’
The documentary will also explore how Coleen has had so much of her life documented in public since marrying her childhood sweetheart and Manchester United and England legend Wayne Rooney.
