Following an allegation by Rooney – who told her 1.2 million Twitter followers that she had spent five months attempting to work out who was sharing stories based on her personal social media posts and pointed the finger at Vardy’s Instagram account – Vardy said she ‘never’ speaks to journalists about her.
The reality TV star and wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy wrote to Rooney: “If you thought this was happening you could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped.
“Over the years various people have had access to my insta & just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself.”
The former I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! star added: “I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?”

“You should have called me the first time this happened.”
