Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney libel case hears of ‘substantial damages’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

The statement was made by Rebekah’s barrister Hugh Tomlinson QC at the end of the libel trial at London’s High Court. He claimed “serious harm” had been caused to Rebekah’s reputation and “the award of damages ought to reflect that” which were “substantial”.

Coleen accused Rebekah, who is married to Leicester City player Jamie, of leaking information from her private Instagram story in October 2019.

Rebekah is suing Coleen for libel in a trial that began last Tuesday.

In closing submissions Mr Tomlinson set out to Mrs Justice Steyn, who is presiding over the trial, why Rebekah should win the case.

He told the judge Coleen “did not need to make a post” about Rebekah Vardy as it was “not in the public interest”.

Mr Tomlinson said: “This is really a falling out between two individuals over what’s essentially a private matter.

“We say the public interest is not actually engaged at all. If it was engaged, then it wasn’t reasonable for Mrs Rooney to put on a post in the way that she did. It wasn’t reasonable for her to believe it was in the public interest for her to post in the way she did at the time she did.

“She must have foreseen it would have a big impact.

”This is a serious and extremely upsetting matter that’s been a burden on her family over the past two-and-a-half years.”

The barrister said the idea Rebekah Vardy was a public figure that needed to have her “hypocrisy” corrected publicly was “fantastical”.

Mr Tomlinson told the court Rebekah brought the case as she wants to be “vindicated”, and still does not know how Coleen’s information was leaked.

But he said Mrs Vardy accepts it is “possible” her former agent Caroline Watt was “the source” of the leaks.

“She doesn’t want to be in the position of accusing her friend and former long-term agent of doing something wrong,” Mr Tomlinson said.

“She sees, as everybody does, the indications that point that way. Her fundamental position is that she doesn’t know what happened.”

“Mrs Vardy has made mistakes. Perhaps the most serious of these may have been to trust Ms Watt as her agent.”

Mr Tomlinson also challenged the suggestion by Coleen’s barrister David Sherbourne that Mrs Vardy and Ms Watt were “obsessed” with Mrs Rooney.

He said out of around 1,200 pages of messages over two years only around ten pages related to conversations about Coleen.

He said: “There is very little about the Rooneys in these conversations. “We don’t have two women who are obsessed with Mrs Rooney, we have two women who over a period of two years mention her on a few occasions.”

He also addressed Whatsapp conversations in which the pair mention ‘leaking’ stories.

Mr Tomlinson said: “She’s prepared from time to time to discuss providing information to the newspapers about specific incidents and about specific people.

“What’s actually happening is they are gossiping.

“The position is clear, really. From time to time, Mrs Vardy and Ms Watt used the language of leaking.

“Your ladyship has to decide what they meant by that. We say in some cases it is just loose language that isn’t really about leaking at all.”

Mrs Justice Steyn has reserved her judgment and it will be handed down on a date to be fixed.

Donny Osmond says wife ordered him to ‘sleep on couch’ after Dancing With The Stars stint | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

American singer and entertainer Donny Osmond, 64, has opened up about his time on Dancing with the Stars a candid new interview. The Osmonds vocalist explained that his unimpressed wife Debbie, 63, would sometimes ask him to “sleep on the couch” following his performances.

Donny spoke about his wife’s reaction to his stint on the popular dancing show after admitting it was a tough gig. 

Thanks to the often sensual numbers the celebrities often have to act out with their attractive professional partners, it’s not difficult to understand why it might rub their partners up the wrong way.

Interviewing him about his time on the show, broadcaster Kevin Pollack jokingly asked Donny: “When you came home, did your wife say, ‘Alright, we’re going out dancing’?

Laughing, Donny swiftly replied: “No, she saw some of the dances and said, ‘you’re sleeping on the couch’.”

“I wanted to win,” Donny continued, before adding: “Kym Johnson my partner: such a sweet lady, but don’t give her a whip!

“In rehearsal hall…Oh my goodness. But thanks to her we won, because she just pushed me hard.”

During the interview, the pop sensation went on to confirm that his time on the competition was the most dancing he’d “ever done”. 

The star’s experience on the show certainly wasn’t all positive, as he revealed he was forced to compete with multiple health issues at the time. 

“I won with a cracked rib, a broken toe and a neck injury from a previous accident,” he shared. 

“And I was at the bottom of the leaderboard [at first] but then it was just like: ‘Boom, boom, boom’ and then I finally won the thing!” he told Kevin during his backstage interview with BroadwayWorld.

The star completed the interview ahead of his brand-new Las Vegas show, DONNY.

Donny rose to fame with his four older brothers in the musical group The Osmonds, earning several top ten hits and gold albums.

Another photo Coleen posted on her private account showed her “reunited for a few days” with her sons and husband Wayne. 

She had also posted a screenshot of a story in The Sun claiming she had undergone gender selection in a “desperate bid to have baby girl”, claiming it was true but that they had decided against it, opting instead for the “natural way”. 

Other false stories Coleen posted about her own life included that she was “escaping the measle outbreak in Washington”. 

Previously in the trial, the court was also shown another Instagram Story Coleen had posted, professing that the basement of their new house had leaked – untrue, but a story that ended up in The Sun. 

‘I have no doubt!’ Johnny Depp’s co-star Eva Green supports actor over Amber Heard trial | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

French actress Eva Green, 41, said Johnny Depp, 58, will “emerge” from the defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, 36, with his “wonderful heart revealed to the world”. The actress made the comments publicly via her Instagram page.

The Dark Shadows star shared a photograph of herself and Mr Depp at the film’s London premiere in 2012.

In the caption, she penned in view of her one million followers: “I have no doubt Johnny will emerge with his good name and wonderful heart revealed to the world.

“Life will be better than it ever was for him and his family.”

Mr Depp is suing Ms Heard for £38.2m ($50m) over an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in 2018.

The actor’s lawyers say the article falsely implies he physically and sexually abused her while they were in a relationship.

He has denied all accusations.

Ms Heard has countersued for $100 million, arguing that he smeared her by calling her a liar.

Her attorneys have argued that she told the truth and that her opinion was protected free speech under the US Constitution’s First Amendment.

Ms Barkin says that she was friends with Mr Depp before their relationship became sexual.

The actress testified that Mr Depp once “threw a wine bottle across the room” and she described him as a “jealous” and “controlling” man.

Mr Depp’s former agent, Tracy Jacobs, also gave evidence via video deposition.

She said that the actor turned up late to set on “virtually every movie” and that made people in the film industry “reluctant to use him”.

She testified that his “unprofessional behaviour” increased because of his use of drugs and alcohol.

The trial will resume on Monday.

It is set to conclude on May 27.

Bear Grylls talks hopes for ‘big’ TV project with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Adventurer and explorer Bear Grylls has teased his NBC show Running Wild has to make its “biggest announcements” yet as he starts filming the latest series. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the TV star, 47, wasn’t giving anything away when asked if he’d like to feature the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the next series of his adventure programme.

Bear replied: “Well, you know, we’re not announcing anything yet.

“We have probably our most amazing guests we’ve ever had on Running Wild coming up this year.

“We’ve got probably our biggest announcements for Running Wild.

“So yeah, nothing official to say yet,” he added.

He went on to address the prospect of environment campaigners Harry and Meghan appearing on the show, which has previously seen the likes of former US president Barack Obama take on the elements.

Bear said: “That would be a great one and talk about stuff that, you know, the environment is so key.

“It’s very key for all of us.

“You know, not just young people, so that message is always front and centre for us and Running Wild anyway, because we live in these extremes.

Speaking about the celebrities on the show, Bear said: “We always get these great guests, we try not to jinx it beforehand by announcing them.

“But I think the reason we get these sorts of guests is that they don’t need the fame or the money.

“You know, they’re not there for that, they’re there for what the wild can give them,” he explained.

“You know, what challenge and what adventure can give them we should sort of pride you know, light in their eyes,” the explorer added.

Elsewhere in the interview, Bear admitted that it was “nerve-wracking” to launch his family festival for the first time since the Covid pandemic.

He said: “I think it’s been a pretty tough couple of years to launch a Festival and it was always a nerve wracking thing, but it had incredible support from so many people.

“I think families are hungry for an adventure type festival in a safe space where they can enjoy making music, making food and get access to fresh experiences and so many cool adventures.

Gone Wild Festival is on from 25 – 28 August. Tickets are available to buy here.

‘They call me anorexic and gaunt’ Megan McKenna hits back at trolls criticising her weight | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Megan McKenna, 29, says trolls have said “really nasty things” about her weight since she began her career in reality television. Megan has been in the public eye since 2015 when she appeared on MTV’s Ex On The Beach. Since then, she has starred in numerous other shows including Celebrity Big Brother, The Only Way Is Essex and X Factor: Celebrity.

Behind her TV persona, Megan has struggled with coeliac disease and a wheat allergy since she was a child.

This means that she cannot eat wheat or gluten or she could suffer a range of excruciating symptoms including stomach pain, diarrhoea and unexpected weight loss.

As a result of being one of the most famous reality stars in the country, Megan says the downside is that she is frequently faced with trolling on social media.

She told Express.co.uk: “They call me anorexic, skeletal and gaunt. There is a list of things… just really nasty things about my weight.

READ MORE:Naga Munchetty bids farewell as Dan Walker exits BBC Breakfast

“I have openly spoken about the fact that I have bowel issues, so people should really lay off because they don’t know, I might be having a bad episode or a flare up and suffering a bit.  
“If I ever eat something that has wheat or gluten in it by accident, it can really affect me for weeks which affects my bowels and I lose weight.”

Megan says that the trolling “used to bother her” when she was younger, but now she has got to a point where she can “completely brush it off”.

After years of being unwell, doctors eventually diagnosed Megan with coeliac disease when she was 10 years old.

Megan has now decided to help others by releasing a gluten-free cookbook, Can You Make That Gluten-Free?

It features 80 recipes with everything from “starters to cakes, posh dinners and cheaper meals”.

Discussing the book, Megan explained: “I think people get so scared when you say ‘gluten-free’. 

“They think they have to eat something really plain and boring, but you can make everything gluten-free.”

Megan also proved her culinary skills when she took part in Celebrity MasterChef last year.

She amazed judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode with her gluten-free dishes and made it all the way to the final.
 
Megan stated: “One of the main reasons why I wanted to do that show was to prove to people that you can eat good food that is gluten-free.

“John and Gregg used to say that they would never be able to tell that it was gluten-free, and that was my aim, so I was so happy.”

Can You Make That Gluten-Free? By Megan McKenna is published by Hamlyn, £20.00, www.octopusbooks.co.uk
