Rebekah Vardy's high profile libel case against Coleen Rooney has come before the High Court in the UK today.

Ms Vardy's lawyer says she's suing Coleen Rooney as a "last resort...to vindicate her reputation".

The claims, which Rebekah Vardy denies, became known as the Wagatha Christie battle following Coleen’s detective work on Instagram.

Ms Rooney made the claims after blocking everyone from her Instagram account, except Vardy, and posting fake stories which then appeared in the papers.

The bomb shell Instagram post went viral.

The court heard Rebekah's been trolled online, including while she was pregnant.

Sky reporter Ali Fortescue attended the meaning hearing.

She said the lawyers claim this case has been trivialised by the media.

"It had been called 'WAG wars' when in reality this has been anything but trivial for her."

Neither woman was present today and proceedings took place through their legal representation.

The judge will decide if the libel trial will go ahead next year and what are the paramotors of the case, if it goes ahead.
