Bitter shots continue in fiery WAG feud

AN ENGLISH glamour model and friend of Rebekah Vardy has slammed Coleen Rooney for "outing" her friend and said Coleen must be "used to being betrayed," adding a new low blow to the drama.

On Friday, 38-year-old Nicola McLean hit out at Coleen for exposing Rebekah as potentially being the person who had been leaking private information about her.

She said the mum of four's actions had exposed a heavily pregnant woman to death threats and extreme stress levels.

In a pointed dig at Coleen, Nicola blasted that the WAG is "used to being betrayed".

The jibe could be seen as a thinly veiled reference to Coleen's well-documented marriage problems with husband Wayne and reports of infidelity.

Nicola, who appeared on I'm a Celebrity and Celebrity Big Brother, said Coleen should have waited another two months to post her explosive tweet so Rebekah, the wife of England striker Jamie Vardy, could have given birth in peace.

She told This Morning: "We've got a pregnant woman here that should not be subjected to this level of abuse.

"Coleen should know this isn't acceptable.

"She's said 'it's Rebekah's account'. I don't think she knows it's Rebekah, she's seven months pregnant.

"This could have waited. Coleen said it's been going on for years. Let it wait - be respectful - is this OK to do now?

"She chose to put a pregnant woman under so much stress.

"We don't know who is right or wrong. We have to show compassion. We've got a pregnant woman receiving death threats, and people saying that her unborn baby should die."

Danielle Lloyd waded into the ongoing feud shortly after Rooney's post, adding a comment of three rat emojis and saying "on a serious note though who does that it's terrible".

Vardy was quick to shut down the comments made by Lloyd when she appeared on This Morning before delivering a shot of her own.

Lloyd stated she wasn't surprised by the bombshell allegations, before defending her stance after fans pointed out Vardy was heavily pregnant.

"(Rebekah) was OK piping up about me before if she wants to give it she needs to take it!" she wrote.

"Someone on her account sold stories on my mate end of pregnant or not!

"Coleen was pregnant when some of these stories came out."

It comes after an expertly crafted post from Coleen Rooney set the internet alight this week as she accused Rebekah Vardy's account of selling stories to the press, in the most public of forums.

Vardy instantly hit back, denying the claims and cutting short her break to deal with the crisis.

She later told the Daily Mail she would find who was behind the leaks and said talking with Coleen was like "arguing with a pigeon."

"I said to her 'Coleen, what on earth have you done?'" Rebekah told the paper about her conversation with Rooney.

"It was not an easy phone call. She said to me: 'I'm not pointing the finger' and I said, 'You have just annihilated me in public and hung me out to dry. The whole world hates me!'

"I thought she was my friend but she completely annihilated me. She said: 'You know, I always really liked you, which makes it harder'."

But Rebekah said the conversation wasn't an argument.

"That would be like arguing with a pigeon. You can tell it that you are right and it is wrong, but it's still going to s*** in your hair," she said.
