Rebekah Vardys future in tatters after Wagatha trial as brand is tarnished

A PR agent has claimed Rebekah Vardy 's future is “in tatters” following the Wagatha Christie trial, after she went head-to-head with Coleen Rooney.

Rebekah is accused alongside her agent Caroline Watt of leaking stories about Coleen and other high-profile names in her circle.

After Coleen launched her own detective work to uncover the leak, Rebekah launched legal action, claiming she suffered "very serious harm to her reputation" as a result of Coleen’s accusations.

Now PR guru Nick Ede has claimed her career is “ruined” after her performance in court, claiming she is “totally unrelatable”.

He said to The Express: “She’s come across as a nasty person who cannot be trusted… her brand is very badly tarnished and she’s totally unrelatable."

Nick said he believes Rebekah “shot herself in the foot” by bringing the case to court, which he said has caused a lot of “personal heartache”.

He predicted she would try to “think of ways to reinvent herself,” and said she might even take part in a future series of Big Brother in an effort to show the public a “more likeable side”.

The PR agent also claims her behaviour in the past will make it difficult for her to become as successful as she was before, after appearing on hit reality shows including I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and Dancing On Ice.

“But the truth is, it’s going to be very difficult for her to claw back because of how badly she’s come across,” he told Closer magazine.

In court documents released after the final day of the trial, Rebekah claimed she had lost work due to the accusation that she had leaked stories about Coleen to the tabloids, revealing she had missed out on a book deal as well as a brand endorsement deal.

She was also labelled a "highly unreliable witness” by Coleen's lawyer on the final day of the libel trial.

David Sherborne, representing Coleen, claimed Rebekah lied under oath and deleted evidence.

He said she had given "implausible, throwaway explanations" and was "lacking in candour".

Critics have slammed the expensive court battle as a "waste of time", with legal bills reportedly set to run into the millions.

The WAGs now face a wait to find out who has won the Wagatha Christie libel battle after the high-profile trial finished last week.
