Wayne Rooney looked into signing up to law school after getting obsessed with Wagatha Christie

The infamous Wagatha Christie trial wasn't just a source of fascination for thousands of Coleen Rooney fans across the nation.

In fact, her legendary football star husband Wayne has claimed he became so obsessed with the waging war of the WAGS, that he even considered venturing off to law school following Coleen's win.

Speaking on their brand new Disney+ documentary, ex-England star Wayne, 37, admitted his interest in the case peaked to such an extent that he began speaking up in the daily debrief sessions, which resulted in Coleen having to tell him to "shut up".

Also appearing on the docu-series, Coleen's lawyer Jamie Hurworth said: "Once the day was finished we would have a little debrief with Wayne and Coleen. I had not dealt with Wayne that much before the trial. But he was just fascinated by the whole thing.

"Wayne started suggesting, like, legal argument that we should start running."

Coleen's lead lawyer Paul Lunt then teased on the show: "I'm not saying he is a modern day Columbo but certainly had we have given him a gown and a wig he was bang up for asking a few questions."

Coleen made global headlines with her social media post ending "It's…….Rebekah Vardy", as she accused the fellow WAG Rebekah of leaking private information to the press.

Rebekah, 41 – wife of fellow footballing pro Jamie Vardy – then responded by taking Coleen to the High Court, but suffered a sensational loss.

Wayne – who with Coleen shares four sons – admitted that his passion for a psychologically thrilling crime series led to him being enthralled by last year's court proceedings.

"Yeah, it was interesting because I do like crime documentaries and in particular the different techniques the two barristers used," Wayne told viewers on the show.

Coleen, also 37 – who famously defeated Rebekah in the illustrious social media stand-off – also revealed that Wayne was genuinely considering going back to school to study law.

Confessing she had to silence her husband during discussions with her barrister David Sherborne, she joked: "I just said 'Wayne shut up and let David or Paul speak'. He was then going to apply for law school and he had all these plans."

"But them little moments carried us through," she added.

On getting the subsequent verdict in court in her favour following a turbulent four years, Coleen admitted: "I couldn't process it. It was…I swore and that was the only thing I did. I just swore and I I teared up and it just didn't sink in. Straight away my phone started pinging and messages started to come through."

Looking back at the case, however – which kicked off in 2019 – Coleen believes the entire libel fiasco was blown out of proportion.

"It was a pathetic reason to go to court. I wish we could have settled it. I wanted to settle it. The money was absolutely ridiculous and I might not get all the money back.

"But for me, getting justice for telling the truth is the most important thing. I feel like a massive weight has been lifted. From when the first Instagram post went in the paper to the court case it must be four and a half years."

She continued: "I can now focus on everything that's important to me."
