Sources close to Rebekah say she is preparing to hit back and is working with her lawyers to prove she had nothing to do with the leak.
An insider exclusively told MailOnline: ‘Rebekah has been incredibly stressed and hasn’t stopped sobbing all day, which is very out of character for her.
‘The whole situation has left her distraught and she still doesn’t understand why Coleen didn’t reach out to her first to ask her outright about the issue.
‘She’s flying home early from Dubai as she feels her time abroad has been spoilt and all she wants is to be surrounded by family.

‘Rebekah wants to prove she had nothing to do with the leaked stories and is working with a lawyer and IT experts who can look at the forensics of her Instagram, which several people have access to.’
A spokesman for Coleen said: ‘It is irrefutable that the leaks came from one account, and one account only.’
Fans have also praised Rooney – calling her ‘Wagatha Christie’ – for the sensational way in which she revealed Vardy was the alleged culprit by concluding her post with a thriller-worthy ‘It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account.’
Insistent: The TV star has hired a team of forensic IT experts to prove her innocence after Coleen accused her of selling stories to the press through information she obtained from her private Instagram
The saga began when Coleen took to social media to reveal she had suspected someone close to her had been betraying her for years and she had conclusive proof that her friend Rebekah was the guilty party.
Coleen admitted that stories about her basement flooding, returning to TV and gender selection were only viewed by Rebekah and these were subsequently followed by media outlets, including MailOnline.
The Sun has since removed their story about Coleen’s basement flooding after discovering she had made it up.

Coleen wrote: ‘For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories.
‘There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family – all without my permission or knowledge.
‘After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion. To try and prove this, I came up with an idea, I blocked everyone from viewing Instagram except ONE account. ‘
She continued: ‘(Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven’t had stories on there for a while).
The full statement: Coleen made these shock claims on Instagram after discovering she had been betrayed by someone close to her and she concluded that it was Rebekah’s account
‘Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into The Sun newspaper.
‘And you know what, they did! The story about gender selection in Mexico, the story about returning to TV and then the latest story about the basement flood in my new house.
‘It’s been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been leaked, however I had to. Now I know for certain which account/individual it’s come from.
‘I don’t need the money’: Rebekah denied all accusations against her minutes after the post and said she had nothing to gain and had no financial motivation – she also slammed her for going public when she is heavily pregnant
‘I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account.’
She also wrote: ‘This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it……’
Rebekah hit back minutes later on social media and denied the accusations.

She wrote: ‘Can’t believe I’m even having to write this. I’m pregnant & on holiday & am at a loss to why she would do this. I’m now having to take legal advice as I can’t deal with this stress myself when I’m this pregnant.’
She also shared: ‘As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this.
‘I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me to over the years can vouch for. If you thought this was happening you can could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped.’

She continued: ‘Over the years various people have had access to my insta & just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself. I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?
‘I liked you a lot Coleen & I’m so upset that you have chosen to do this especially when I’m heavily pregnant. I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this. You should have called me the first time this happened [broken heart emoji].’
Rebekah’s spokesperson also told MailOnline: ‘Please refer to Becky’s social media posts.
‘It isn’t true, she is now very upset and stressed so has passed it to her legal team to deal with. Such a shame that Coleen didn’t just call her when she had her number.’
A host of celebrities took to social media to air their views on the matter and most appeared to be taking Coleen’s side.
Fellow former WAG Danielle Lloyd posted some rat emojis in the comments section of Coleen’s post and even Wayne Rooney prostitute Helen Wood leaped to Coleen’s defence.
She wrote: ‘Probably shouldn’t comment but going to anyway always said Rebekah Vardy was a snake in the grass hence why I’m blocked her whole persona screamed it on the jungle. Sly eyes too.’
She also retweeted a post from Vardy from a fan who wrote: ‘Rebekah Vardy really embarrassing herself with that reply to Coleen Rooney.’

In 2017, Rebekah appeared on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! but was the third person to be voted off. Some viewers called for her to leave the show after some of her homophobic tweets were unearthed
The tweets in question said: ‘@MrHarryWood: @Xelahopkins1984 @Little_Miss_Foz what about the 3rd “bird” the gay walker? @jay_walker25 ginger gay w**ker ha ha PMSL.’
While, to the bystander, this tweet mostly doesn’t make sense, the words ‘gay’ and ‘ginger gay w**ker’ caught the eye of her critics, demanding she be taken off the show.

However her friend Jay Walker, who was mentioned in the tweets, stepped in to clear things up. ‘I hate to disappoint people ‘[but] this tweet was to me & we were all just repeating names a guy had called us.
‘Nothing homophobic about it & actually mocking someone who had been. Rebekah is the least homophobic or malicious person I know so afraid your all very much mistaken. Good luck Mrs Vardy.’
She also headed out to Russia with the family to support husband Jamie in the 2018 World Cup. Rebekah previously had a one-night stand with singer Peter Andre in 2001 and has previously spoken about their relationship in the press, saying he had a ‘chipolata penis.’

She gave an interview to The News Of The World about the fling, saying Peter was ‘the worst lover’ she’d ever had. Adding: ‘He had great muscles and I thought he’d be a great lover. But he was the worst lover I have ever had. He didn’t even attempt to satisfy me!’
In 2017, Rebekah’s ex-partner and father of one of her children, Luke Foster discussed her relentless quest for fame when he gave an interview with The Mirror, saying at the time: ‘I’m glad I am shot of her.’
He claimed she told him shew had ‘upgraded’ him by dating Jamie, who was then earning £80k per week as a Leicester player.
Luke met Rebekah in 2007 – she already had daughter Megan and the couple had son Taylor, nine, together. He claimed her decision to appear on I’m A Celebrity was motivated by a desire to be more famous, not wealthier.

Shock: Moreover, Wayne and Rebekah’s footballer husband Jamie are also close friends and were pictured hugging one another at the same England vs Wales match – but it was previously claimed that Wayne had warned Jamie about his wife
The ex lower-league footballer said: ‘For Becky, going on the show is not about money. This is all about becoming famous. If someone had a better car than us, she’d want to go one better.
‘She’s now got the husband she always wanted, one who can keep her in the lifestyle she’s dreamt of. She’s got the shopping, the house, the car. She’s living her perfect life. Becky upgraded. She said that to my face. She said he’d treat her a hell of a lot better.’
The couple split in 2013 and three months later Becky and Jamie were expecting their first child together – Becky is now expecting her third child with the footballer.

It was claimed back in 2016 that Wayne had ‘warned’ Jamie Vardy about Rebekah in England showdown talks in 2016.
Wayne and Jamie were both part of the England squad at Euro 2016 as the Three Lions were dumped out by Iceland.
The Times claimed Rooney told Vardy to make sure Rebekah didn’t provide a distraction with her social media posts. She had earlier hit out at French police for treating England fans ‘like animals’.
Ex England boss Roy Hodgson was forced to deny reports that Rooney and Vardy had fallen out during the Euro 2016 tournament.
Hodgson said: ‘I haven’t got a clue what you are referring to. There are absolutely no problems in football terms between Wayne Rooney and Jamie Vardy.
‘In fact quite the reverse, they are very close friends, both on the field and off the field. I have got no idea what you are referring to
‘I certainly would advise Wayne to give no comment to it because it is obviously one salacious story that someone has managed to spin. It is of no interest to us.’
