She laughed. ‘No. I like pen and paper – a pencil and rubber actually, so I can rub it out. So I started writing what I wanted to say and the next morning I put it out there. That was the start of something I never expected.”
Coleen said she didn’t tell anyone what she was going to do. ‘No. (The part) my friends and family were most surprised about me (because) was making the post.”

Coleen was both concerned and furious that she had been ‘taken to court’, saying: ‘I found it hard not to show it.
‘It was so strange that first day, really sitting on a bench together. It was so hard in that courtroom… especially seeing her on the stand. It was quite painful. I felt uncomfortable.
“Obviously she was going through it. ‘I thought, “Why did you put yourself in this position?” It wasn’t fun to watch. To this day she cannot understand why Vardy took her to court. She’s ‘strange’.’
And Coleen revealed how she found out she had won the case, saying: ‘I had to come out to take the phone call, so I’m sitting in my car in the middle of Manchester on an industrial estate. David Sherborne, her lawyer, came on the line and said, ‘We won,’ he said without any build-up.”
She laughed, “I think I just cursed for the whole fifteen minutes.
“It was quite surreal how many people followed it. Not just football players or girls. It felt like everyone was reading about it. All ages, all types. The positivity I got from it…I’m certainly happy about that.’

Coleen was awarded legal costs by the court and £800,000 of the total amount due became immediately due and payable.
