LONDON

Coleen Rooney says someone using Rebekah Vardy's Instagram account has leaked stories about her as a Twitter spat between the two footballers' wives gripped Britain on Wednesday.

Rooney, married to former England international Wayne Rooney, told her 1.3m Twitter followers that she had spent five months attempting to work out who was sharing stories based on her personal social media posts.

She said she worked out that the stories were coming from the account of reality TV star Vardy, the wife of Leicester City striker and ex-England international Jamie Vardy, following a sting operation.

She wrote on Twitter: "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."

Rooney, 33, said she had a suspicion of who it might be and blocked everyone apart from an Instagram page belonging to Vardy from seeing her Instagram stories.

She said she had posted a series of false stories, some of which made it into the Sun tabloid.

"I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them," she said.
