Footballers’ Wives’ Laila Rouass calls Coleen and Rebekah ‘amateurs’ for their lacklustre WAG war 

Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy‘s WAG war is drawing to a close. 

And Footballers’ Wives actress Laila Rouass called Wayne Rooney‘s spouse, 35, and her adversary, 39, ‘amateurs’ for their lacklustre behaviour in their ongoing feud. 

The actress, 49, who is known for playing Amber Gates in the former ITV drama, said her character and the other leading ladies would have been ‘at each other’s throats’ and ‘pulled each other’s hair extensions out,’ if they were in their shoes.

Speaking to the Loose Women panellists on Friday’s episode, she humorously said: ‘The way [Rebekah] Vardy and Coleen [Rooney] are dealing with it. Sorry, it’s just not…

‘We would have been at each other’s throats, there wouldn’t have been all this going to court and all of that. 

‘They’re not professionals they’re amateurs, we would have dealt with it in the players’ lounge, woman to woman, and pulled each other’s hair extensions out.’  

MailOnline exclusively revealed earlier in April that Rebekah is making a fresh bid to weaken rival Coleen’s case before their so-called Wagatha Christie case reaches its dramatic conclusion.

Rebekah was working to have a section of evidence from Coleen’s defence ‘struck out’ in her latest move, the section is known as ‘TV Details story’ and stems from a story Coleen claims she leaked in September 2019.

Meanwhile, Coleen was given just 24 hours (until 4.30pm on Friday) to add any more evidence before a new deadline, with Rebekah then given a chance to serve a reply to Coleen’s evidence documents.

The twin developments signal that the two warring Wags are further than ever from reaching an eleventh-hour agreement to prevent a lurid and hugely expensive court case from going ahead.

Rebekah, married to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, is suing mother-of-four Coleen for libel after Coleen accused her to leaking false stories over her private life.

The long-running feud between the high-profile WAGS erupted after Coleen revealed that she had set a trap to see who was responsible for the leaks, which earned her the nickname Wagatha Christie.

Coleen famously wrote: ‘I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s ……………. Rebekah Vardy’s account.’

Soon after, Rebekah took to social media to deny being the person who had leaked the stories to the press, after Coleen’s post went viral.

Meanwhile, Laila concluded her role as Amber on Footballers’ Wives in 2006, and joined Holby City as registrar Sahira Shah in 2011.

She departed the show after 14 months to focus on her family before resuming the role earlier this year in February. 

However, she is leaving the daytime soap once more as she teased her exit storyline and revealed her future plans on Loose Women.  

She said: ‘My father’s just had a cardiac arrest but they suspect that all is not as it seems, they suspect his death is suspicious, but that’s where it’s left this week.

‘Next week we find out if it was suspicious circumstances, and find out who it is, and then it’s my last week on Holby!

‘I’m doing a show called Traces and we are fine to do it without social distancing as we are getting tested every two days.’

‘But on Holby, there was a Covid-19 marshal on set, if I have to touch someone, they would bring in someone from in my bubble. It’s really clever how they do it but it’s an absolute nightmare filming under those conditions.’

Laila shares a daughter Inez Khan, 14, with her ex Nasir Khan who has sent to prison in 2011 for his involvement in a £250million scam. 

She has since moved on with professional poker player Ronald O’Sullivan and the pair became engaged in 2013. 

Sharing an insight into his sportsmanship she added: ‘Ron is very self-critical, he’s a sportsman and he’s number one in his game so he expects to be perfect.
