Here are 21 of the *best* reactions to the Wagatha Christie trial
Happy Wayne Rooney court drawing day, to those who celebrate
So, it’s the final day of the momentous Wagatha Christie trial, and I’m so thankful for the light relief it’s brought over the last couple of weeks. No-one’s going to come out of this smelling of roses – except everyone who memed it.
Rebekah Vardy sued Coleen Rooney for libel, after Rooney sensationally announced to her Instagram followers that Vardy allegedly leaked fake stories about her to the press. Thus, a hun story of biblical proportions was born.
From sarky lawyers to Peter Andre’s penis; Davy Jones to Wayne Rooney’s court drawings, every moment of the case was pure, unsaturated entertainment. Thank you, ladies, for brightening my month.
Here are all the best tweets and reactions to the Wagatha Christie trial – forever in our hearts:
1. Truly a moment in hunstory

2. It’s… a mess
‘It’s Rebecca Vardy’s account’ was hilarious and iconic. That lady is nasty for selling those stories to the tabloids knowing how cruel the press and the public are

3. It should’ve been broadcast on every main channel like a royal death
Rebekah Vardy calling Coleen Rooney a cunt for unfollowing her on Instagram, I honestly have no idea why this trial isn’t being broadcast on big screens outside pubs like the Wimbledon final, I am simply hooked

4. It was one of yas

6. A need, not a want
Coleen Rooney better tweet “chat shit get banged” if she wins this
— Michael Bailey (@mikebailey92) May 13, 2022
7. Most revolutionary case in British history
Lawyer: “Delete her off your insta?”
Coleen Rooney: “I’d already blocked her.”
I’m at Her Majesty’s High Court of Justice in England.

8. This I have to see
Honestly would’ve been more dignified if she went and physically fought Coleen Rooney outside of her son’s school

9. A CHIPOLATA SAUSAGE
If Netflix @NetflixUK don’t make a Coleen Rooney v Rebekah Vardy series, complete with cutaways to a chipolata sausage, a boat being rowed out to sea with a phone encased in concrete, and images of texts with “cunt” and “bitch” highlighted in yellow, I’m cancelling my contract.

10. Parallels in literature
coleen rooney posting fake instagram stories to see if rebekah vardy was the leak is the same as when hamlet staged the murder of gonzago to determine if claudius killed his dad. in this essay i will

11. Did… Did Coleen Rooney shit… In Rebekah’s…?
Coleen Rooney’s lawyer refers to previous comments from Rebekah Vardy
‘Arguing with Coleen is like arguing with a pigeon.
‘You can tell it that you are right and it is wrong; but it’s still going to shit in your hair.’
— Julian Druker (@Julian5News) May 12, 2022

13. ‘Kerry! You look like a sponge for christ’s sake’
— Gayle Carrington (@GayleCarrington) May 12, 2022
14. Let us have fun!!!
You can care about big world events, and causes close to your heart, and still find #wagathachristie funny. The money spent on it is obscene but it’s their money not ours 🤷🏽♀️ The worthiness Olympics on here sometimes makes my head spin.
— Poorna Bell (@poornabell) May 12, 2022
15. Not this
Rooney’s lawyer claims WhatsApp messages that would show the leaking of stories to the Sun are on a phone dropped off the side of a boat. He says it is now “lying at the bottom of sea in Davy Jones’ locker”.
Vardy asks the court: “Who is Davy Jones?”
The judge intervenes.
— Jim Waterson (@jimwaterson) May 12, 2022
We break for lunch. In my humble opinion, the WhatsApp message saying “it was me” is going to make Rebekah Vardy’s life quite difficult.
— Tom Peck (@tompeck) May 12, 2022
Rebekah Vardy’s reputation is sinking faster than a phone filled with incriminating WhatsApp messages in the North Sea #wagathachristie

19. She’s actually me
Imagine taking someone to court by choice to ‘clear your name’ only to hand over evidence that proves you’re guilty! Why would you bring this upon yourself? #wagathachristie #rebekahvardy https://t.co/5KqbpBIk6W pic.twitter.com/dp1llAmlA1
