Beaming Rebekah Vardy heads to DOI training

Beaming Rebekah Vardy heads to DOI training with partner Andy Buchanan and his axed pro skater wife Robin Johnstone…. amid latest development in Coleen Rooney court battle

Rebekah Vardy beamed as she headed to Dancing On Ice training with her pro Andy Buchanan and his partner Robin Johnstone. 

The WAG, 38, was adding a pop of colour to the dreary day as she wrapped up in pink sportswear and clutched a hot drink ahead of Saturday’s live show, which will no longer feature Robin since she was axed with Rufus Hound. 

Things looked to be on the up for the star, who headed out hours after she is said to have come face-to-face on Zoom with Coleen Rooney, 34, amid their ongoing Wagatha Christie defamation High Court case.

Rebekah was glowing as she stepped into training in low-key fashion following last week’s show, where she wound up in the skate-off against Graham Bell. 

Andy was no doubt comforting Robin, who discovered she had lost her place on the show after her partner Rufus tested positive for coronavirus.  

Away from the show’s politics, MailOnline revealed earlier this week that on Wednesday the duo would meet in an attempt to settle their high-profile dispute as a deadline looms for them to find an agreement out of court.

The warring pair participated in a two-day mediation hearing, held remotely. Lawyers representing both women were said to be present for the hearing, which will be conducted by a mediator that has been agreed by both sides.

The identity of the mediator is confidential but according to legal experts, it was likely to be a senior barrister, who would step in between the two parties if discussions get too heated.

Passions remain high between the two WAGs, with Rebekah adamant that she was not responsible for leaking stories about Coleen to the media.

Coleen has handed Rebekah an ‘olive branch’ and made her an offer to ‘agree to disagree’ as they head into mediation.

If accepted, the last-minute peace deal would see both parties make a substantial donation to charity. They would also pay their own legal costs, a move known in legal circles as a ‘drop hands’ settlement.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Coleen believes that this has all gone too far. The legal costs on both sides are well into six figures.’

Rebekah launched a £1m High Court libel action after Coleen accused her in an Instagram post more than a year ago of being the source of leaks to the media.

Coleen revealed that she had set a trap to see who was responsible for them, which earned her the nickname ‘Wagatha Christie’ as the row between the two Wags simmered, culminating in legal action.

At the start of their libel case at London’s High Court last November, the judge agreed a stay on the case until 8 February so that mediation can take place. If the two women are unable to reach agreement, then a trial is expected to take place later this year.
