In the final round of Wagatha Christie’s High Court battle, the judge clapped back at Coleen’s demands.
Ms Rooney, 35, has accused Ms Vardy, 39, of leaking stories about her private life after a months-long ‘undercover operation’.

Mrs Justice Steyn said: “There is no argument made that these payments were excessive because they incorporated additional costs with respect to the disclosure of the private information of the defendant or any other person.

Ms Vardy, who is married to Leicester City striker Jamie, denies the charges and is suing Ms Rooney for defamation.
Lawyers for Ms Rooney have previously claimed that Ms Vardy leaked information to The Sun either directly or through her agent Caroline Watt ‘acting on her instructions or with her conscious approval’.
Mrs Justice Steyn also refused Coleen’s request to use the text messages in her defamation defense.
