Celebrities say Wagatha Christie’s trial should become a musical

The Wagatha Christie trial is set to be turned into a musical, according to seized celebrities.

Comedian and Loose Women star Jenny Eclair said the ongoing High Court battle between Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney would be a great song and dance show.

She is one of a host of stars captivated by the £3million libel trial, which resumes in London later today (May 16).

Jenny, 62, who previously starred in ITV’s I’m A Celebrity like Rebekah, tweeted: ‘Please can this be a musical.

Coronation Street writer and playwright Jonathan Harvey, 53, added: “Music and lyrics by The Wurzels.”

Liverpool poet Roy – aka PJ Smith – tweeted: “Can’t wait for the three part drama on ITV.

“Caroline Quentin will have to be involved. I can play Wayne as well. Martin Freeman as Gareth Southgate.”

The High Court trial came after Rebekah started legal proceedings against Coleen to sue her for defamation, after he claimed Rebekah had leaked stories to the press via Instagram, in October 2019.

After a number of her social media posts only to her family and friends were reported in the press, Coleen set up an “undercover operation” to catch the attacker.

She claimed she had suspected Rebekah for nearly a year, due to her relationship with The Sun newspaper and her “desire to be famous”.

Coleen claimed Rebekah “wanted to be famous” and staged paparazzi snaps.

She also said she doubted Rebekah leaked the stories for financial gain, but to maintain good press relations.

After a few months, she set up a sting operation and posted a “dummy series” of stories in an effort to surprise her.

After feeling convinced it was Rebekah, she decided to go public with her claims.
