Meanwhile, last year, Rebekah appeared on Good Morning Britain to confirm her stint on the show.

And she spoke about her feud with Coleen Rooney.

The pair fell out in 2019 when Coleen claimed false stories about her became leaked to the press via Rebekah’s Instagram account.

At the time, Rebekah briefly addressed her legal battle with the fellow WAG.

She said: “Look, we tried to sort things out amicably and it just didn’t work.
