She claimed explosive text messages between the tworeleased last week as part of a two-day hearing at the High Courtshowed a misuse of her private information.

But in her ruling Justice Steyn refused permission to add the claim against Miss Watt to the libel case.

The Wags are locked in a court battle after Coleen, 35, alleged Rebekah, 39, leaked stories from her private Instagram account to the press in 2019.

Rebekah vehemently denies the claimsand is suing Coleen for libel.

Verlede week, Coleen claimed Miss Watt was thedirect leak” – but insisted the agent’s Wag boss was “agter” Dit.

Coleen’s barrister David Sherborne earlier said that, if Rebekah wins and the court finds she was not the person who leaked the info, then Coleen will be left withoutvindication”.

That is unless she is able to bring the misuse of private information claim against Ms Watt as part of the same case.

Rebekah’s lawyers had opposed the application to add the claim against Ms Watt to the case.

If the defendant had genuinely wished to bring a misuse of private information claim against Ms Watt in order to vindicate her rights this claim could have been brought 15 maande gelede,” Hugh Tomlinson QC said in written arguments.

The Sun last week revealed texts between Rebekah and her agent pal Caroline Watt in full.

Hulle lay bare their long-standing secret loathing of Coleen, who Rebekah branded astupid cow”.

Coleen’s lawyers said they wanted to examine Miss Watt’s phone further in a bid to discover other messages.

But itregrettablyslipped from her grasp and into the North Sea shortly after a judge had ordered her to hand it over.

In a series of messages on Rebekah’s phone, the Wag branded her former friend anasty b****” en “such a d***”.

And in one text sent in February 2019 , Rebekah appears to accuse Real Housewives of Cheshire star Leanne Brown and Wag Dawn Ward of leaks.

She writes: “Sy (Coleen) thinks it’s me that’s been doing the stories on her! Of all the people on her Instagram ffs! Leanne Brown etc x.

Wag Leanne, 44, wife of ex-Manchester United ace Wes, 42, is one of Coleen’s closest friends, whilst Dawn is married to former footie star, Ashley.

There is no suggestion the pair have ever leaked stories.

The messages also detail the lengths Rebekah and Ms Watt were willing to go to if the former was ever accused of leaking stories about her foe.

In one exchange the pair discuss what to do after mum-of-four Coleen, 35, suddenly unfollowed Rebekah on Instagram in February 2019.

OORLOEG VOEG

Rebekah, wife of ex-England and Leicester City striker, Jamie, 35, sneers: “Stupid cow deserves everything she gets! Hope she gets sold out massively now.

In another message she says: “Not having her bad mouth me to anyoneif she’s doing that my god she will be sorry.

And in another exchange recorded a month earlier Rebekah writes: “I’ve taken a big dislike to her!

She thinks she’s amazingWould love to leak those stories.

Miss Watt apparently brands Coleentrashand saysshe’s so up her own arse”, whilst Rebekah calls hera nasty bitch” en a “c***”.

Rebekah’s lawyers insist she was talking about someone else.

Ms Watt and Rebekah also discussed a potentialcover-upif it ever becameundeniably obviousthey were behind leaks.

The agent suggested they blameone of the girls in the officewho had access to an old laptop containing all of Rebekah’s social media passwords.

SHOWDOWN

In 2019 Coleen sensationally accused Rebekah‘s Instagram account of leaking fake stories she’d purposely posted on her personal account.

[object Window]: “It’s been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been leaked, however I had to.

Now I know for certain which account/individual it’s come from.

It’s . . . Rebekah Vardy’s account.

Rebekah, who was heavily pregnant at the time of Coleen’s accusations, denied the claims and insisted she had nothing to gain from selling stories to the press.

She hit back: “As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this. I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me over the years can vouch for.

“If you thought this was happening you could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped. Over the years various people have had access to my Insta and just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself.
