Rebekah Vardy in tears in first interview after Wagatha Christie trial

Rebekah Vardy has made an emotional return to the spotlight, breaking down during her first post WAGatha Christie interview.

The 40-year-old mother-of-five tried to sue fellow WAG Coleen Rooney for defamation after the latter claimed her private social media stories were being leaked to the press via Rebekah’s Instagram account.

The High Court found in Coleen’s favour, bringing the long-running saga to an end… for now.

Rebekah has sat down for an interview with TalkTV, where she insists she “didn’t do it”.

Rebekah Vardy breaks down in tears as she speaks out about the Wagatha Christie trial

And speaking to journalist Kate McCann preview clip, Rebekah said: “Oh come on, you can’t ask me that.”

She continues: “I will say that ’til I’m blue in the face. I did not do it!”

In response to another question, Rebekah says: “I feel let down by a lot of people, a lot of things. But most importantly I feel let down by the legal system.”

But what is Rebekah really saying? Body language expert Judi James has analysed the clip for The Mirror, and likens her to Lady Bracknell – a high-society dowager in Oscar Wilde’s comedy play The Importance of Being Earnest.

Judi said: “Rebekah sits turned more to camera than to Kate McCann here, pinning her eyes to the carpet for most of this clip while her facial features engage in some pretty indecipherable expressions.

“There is whispered tone and an expression of shock that is more Lady Bracknell than a WAG who has just been through a very public court case.

“‘Oh come on, you can’t ask me that,’ she breathes.”

Rebekah also, Judi says, displays several ‘defensive’ signals and uses ‘barrier’ gestures to create distance when giving answers to the most important questions.

“Rebekah’s crossed and clamped legs and her tight hand clasp suggest she is either on the defensive here or feeling tense and her eye movements seem to suggest she feels in need of some protection,” Judi continued.

“The looking down creates a barrier, as does the extended blink eye cut-off when she says ‘I didn’t do it’.

“A shoulder-shrug seems to suggest she’s throwing the suggestion off but apart from a raising of the outer end of one eyebrow her general demeanour looks almost impenetrable.

“But then comes a dramatic and jerky tilting of her head, which drops so low it seems to be touching the hands on her lap.

“When her head rears back her mouth seems to be clamped and curled up at the corners in what could pass for a stoic smile but then she seems to shake her head and gulp as though she is on the brink of tears.”

Rebekah Vardy: Coleen and Me airs on Wednesday 3rd August at 7pm on TalkTV.
