'We know that Ms Watt's phone is now in Davy Jones' Locker, don't we, Mrs Vardy?' Mr Sherborne said.

Rebekah then replied: 'I'm sorry, I don't know who Davy Jones is'.


The judge then had to describe the idiom, which refers to the legendary resting place of sailors who have drowned at sea.
More from the Mail.
Today, the High Court heard how Rebekah received a text from her agent, Ms Watt, announcing 'it was me' after Coleen first publicly claimed that someone had been leaking stories from her private Instagram. Asked by Mr Sherborne why did not challenge her, Rebekah said it was because she had been 'watching Dancing on Ice' and was distracted by Gemma Collins's infamous 'face-plant'.
And then...
I don't really watch television, said Rebekah

Vardy either can’t remember, forgot, was drunk…what a farce.

Vardy comparing Rooney to a pigeon..."Arguing with Coleen Rooney would be like arguing with a pigeon. You can tell it that you are right and it is wrong, but it is still going to shit in your hair.”

Late news from day three.
Rooney's rep accuses Vardy of deliberately destroying evidence, habitually leaking stories to the Sun newspaper, and trying to shift the blame on to her adviser Caroline Watt.
The court heard that just days before the trial began, Vardy said she had belatedly realised after almost three years that she may have been “betrayed” by her agent, who was a close friend. Watt declined to give evidence at the trial, citing health reasons. But Sherborne said the real reason Watt would not enter the witness box was because it would expose the lies that had been told.
Not much happening on day four.

It's riveting.

Mostly because of the cover up. Straight out of Watergate.

Day four
Vardy’s lawyer, Hugh Tomlinson QC, put it to Coleen Rooney that there was not “a shred of evidence” that Vardy had leaked private Instagram material about the couple to the Sun.
Well of course there's no evidence.
  • evidence from Ms Watt’s phone was not availble because the device had fallen into the North Sea
  • Vardy employed an IT expert to back up her WhatsApp messages but the expert lost the password
  • and a laptop used by Vardy during the period in question has stopped working.
  • electronic records suggest there was manual deletion of some WhatsApp messages
  • Rooney’s lawyers are trying to obtain copies of any conversations that may have taken place between the two women and the Sun journalist Andy Halls (but) the Sun’s lawyers are refusing to disclose information
  • Watt declined to give evidence at the trial
He suggested that another one of Rooney’s 300-plus followers may have been responsible for passing information to journalists at the tabloid.
Previously covered.



As said earlier, no smoking gun, plenty of circumstantial.
It's still looking like a jury would rule on one side, the judge on the other.

We all need a bit of light relief. Note how I put this in the lounge

At least there's no Depp and Heard case reports

A pigeon and a chipolata? FFS! First week highlights of Rooney v Vardy

Like a phone dropped in the North Sea, Vardy v Rooney is full of absolute gold

This is about the level of intelligent thought for so many in the UK.Now Paul Hollywood,a cookery"expert",is annoyed that his (so called)fame has intruded into the goings-on in his private life.

"celebrity" culture (surely a paradox) is such...... happily I can tune out of all this grbage and take solace in the fact that these idiots will end up poorer and no more meaningful whatever the result.

It seems lost on them that the amounts they are spending on lawyers, publicists and couture would stock a good few food-banks for those who actually have real lives to worry about. Vacuous, vain and devoid of meaningful contributions, hopefullt they will soon sink back into the primordial slime of the tabloid press.

Day Five

Not much to report really. Rooney's been giving evidence but nothing startling or embarrassing.
