Witness statement revelations

In her statement, Rebekah claimed she lost out on lucrative work opportunities following accusations she leaked person stories about Coleen to the press.

She wrote: “It has also impacted on my work.

“We had a potential book deal that was turned down in the wake of [Coleen’s Instagram] post. No one wanted to be involved with anything that was potentially going to end up in a court case, and because, although they didn’t necessarily say it to me, of the damage to my reputation.

“I had a midwife company lined up to make placenta capsules and they pulled out weeks before the birth [of her fifth child Olivia].”

Rebekah’s fear

The ex I’m A Celebrity contestant also detailed how she experiences “fear” over Wagatha Christie being raised.

The statement continued: “I still get extremely stressed by live television or going into any environment where there is press because of the fear that someone will bring it up.”

Mr Tomlinson added his client was subject to abuse on social media before and during the trial.

He added: “This is really a falling-out of two individuals over what is essentially a private matter.

“The Whodunnit tone which [Mrs Rooney] must have foreseen would have had a big impact, and did have an enormous impact, we do say it was unreasonable for her to do it in the manner in which she did.”
