Nicola McClean has revealed fellow WAG Rebekah Vardy has been forced to take her children out of school, after Coleen Rooney publicly accused her of selling stories to the press.
The former glamour model, who is married to footballer Tom Williams, is a longtime friend of Rebekah’s.
Speaking on The Jeremy Vine Show this morning, Nicola defended her pregnant pal.
“I don’t know Coleen, but I do know Rebekah and what she’s going through is what nobody should have to go through so publicly,” she said.
“She’s got people saying they hope her baby dies inside her, she’s seven months pregnant, she’s had to take her daughter out of school.”
Nicola said she has never seen someone in the industry receive such harsh backlash.
She also said: “Coleen has been very clever as to say it’s ‘Rebekah Vardy’s account’, so that’s not saying it’s Rebekah it’s someone else with access.”
“And if she thought that, shouldn’t she have called Rebekah?”
“She cannot stop crying, she’s had to take her kids out of school… but we’re all sitting here laughing about it.”@NicolaMcLean says her friend @RebekahVardy is “devastated” over Coleen Rooney’s accusation – and everyone should back off until more is known.@TheJeremyVine pic.twitter.com/D87AZFZiQ6

Nicola also confirmed that Rebekah is firmly denying Coleen’s claims.
“Rebekah has categorically denied this, I’ve spoken to Rebekah personally, she has categorically denied this,” she said.
“She’s taking legal action, she said if it’s someone from her account she will find out who it is and she will deal with it.”
