Rebekah Vardy is considering two offers to tell her side of the 'Wagatha Christie' story.

The 40-year-old star has been approached about making a documentary to show her "emotional turmoil", after Coleen Rooney accused her Instagram account of leaking false stories to the press.

A source told The Mirror newspaper: "The show will document her emotional turmoil both before, during and after her court case, which is ongoing to this day.”

However, Rebekah's documentary will not follow her libel trial, which she lost to Coleen.

The insider added: "Becky always refused to allow cameras to follow her during the libel case, unlike Coleen."

This comes after it was revealed that Coleen has signed a lucrative deal with Disney Plus for the rights to her side of the story.

Disney said: "The three-part series will take viewers from the cir¬¬cum¬¬stances that led to Coleen’s ¬infamous ¬ Instagram post that ‘broke the internet’ all the way to Coleen being a successful defendant in one of the UK’s highest profile High Court defamation cases brought against her by Rebekah Vardy.

"'Wagatha Christie' will reveal how fiercely ¬determined and resilient Coleen had to be in order to protect her family from the challenges presented by ¬traditional and social media landscapes."

The show is being made by the same production company which made a documentary about her husband Wayne - titled 'Rooney' - last year and Coleen signed the deal with Disney Plus following a bidding war with rivals Amazon Prime, Netflix and Discovery.

According to The Sun, cameras filming for the documentary have been following Coleen for months and the show will give viewers "unfiltered access" from behind-the-scenes.

Coleen, 36, had publicly claimed that "Rebekah Vardy's account" was the source behind three fake stories she had posted on her private Instagram page - of which Rebekah was an approved follower - and was dubbed 'Wagatha Christie' for her social media probing, a reference to the term 'WAGS' which is an acronym used to refer to wives and girlfriends of high-profile sportsmen.

Rebekah - who is married to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy - sued Coleen for libel after she accused her of leaking "false stories" to the media in an explosive social media post, but a judge ruled against Rebekah in July.
