She said she suspected Rebekah, wife of Leicester City’s Jamie, and turned detective to try and find out who was leaking stories “without her permission or knowledge”.
Coleen, a mum-of-four, changed her Instagram settings so only a limited number of people could see her posts and then fabricated false tales to see if they were picked up by the Press.
When they were, she decided Rebekah must be the culprit, something the pregnant WAG has strongly denied.
PRIVATE INSTAGRAM POSTS
Each of the stories provided to The Sun was put to Coleen’s representatives before publication, and on each occasion they declined to comment.
Coleen’s bombshell post, which had been liked more than 27,000 times in just 45 minutes, read: “This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it.
“For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories.
I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account.
“There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family – all without my permission or knowledge.
“After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion.
“To try and prove this, I came up with an idea, I blocked everyone from viewing Instagram except ONE account.
“(Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven’t had stories on there for a while).
“ONE PERSON VIEWED THEM”
“Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the Sun newspaper.
“And you know what, they did! The story about gender selection in Mexico, the story about returning to TV and then the latest story about the basement flood in my new house.
“It’s been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been leaked, however I had to. Now I know for certain which account/individual it’s come from.
“I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them.
“It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account.”
I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?
Vardy, who is heavily pregnant, immediately wrote her own statement to ask why Coleen didn’t call her before the post, insisting: “What would I gain from selling stories on you?”
She said: “As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this.
“I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me to over the years can vouch for.
“If you thought this was happening you could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped.

“Over the years various people have had access to my insta & just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself.
“I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?
“I liked you a lot Coleen & I’m so upset that you have chosen to do this, especially when I’m heavily pregnant.
“I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this. You should have called me the first time this happened.”
Rebekah immediately hit back and denied any involvement with the “leaking” of stories[/caption]
