Former England football captain Wayne Rooney's wife, Coleen has reportedly requested access to Leicester City star Jamie Vardy's wife, Rebekah's texts, emails and phone records to gather evidence ahead of their upcoming court case.

Rebekah recently filed a defamation case against Coleen in the London High Court after the latter accused her of leaking fake stories to the press via social media.
