A first look at the upcoming Disney+ docuseries on the 'Wagatha Christie' scandal has been released.
The famous story first broke back in 2019, as Coleen Rooney investigated why private stories of hers were leaking to the press, before her investigations alleged that Rebekah Vardy's account was behind them.
Last year, it was confirmed that a new tell-all documentary series was in the works at Disney+, titled Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story, and now a series of first-look images of Rooney – who will tell her story with exclusive access – have been released, showing the star in court.
The full synopsis reads: "Uncovering one of the biggest tabloid news stories in Britain for the last decade, it reveals how Coleen turned amateur online sleuth to find an explanation for why private stories concerning herself and her family continued to appear in the media.
"The three-part series looks at the circumstances that led to her infamous Instagram post that 'broke the Internet' all the way to Coleen successfully defending herself in one of the UK’s highest-profile High Court defamation cases of recent years.
"As well as the case itself, we will explore how Coleen has had her life played out in public for the last 20 years. We know her as one of Britain's most famous celebrities and wife of England's record-scoring footballer Wayne Rooney."
There will also be interviews with family, friends and key players in the case, while the series is directed and produced by BAFTA-nominee Lucy Bowden.
The series followed the High Court defamation case and starred This Is England's Chanel Cresswell as Rooney, Game of Thrones' Natalia Tena as Vardy and Good Omens' Michael Sheen as barrister David Sherborne.
Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story will stream on Disney+, with a release date yet to be confirmed.
