WAYNE Rooney’s cousin Claire has branded Rebekah Vardy a snake and a rat after Coleen accused the fellow WAG of leaking stories about her.
She waded into the explosive Twitter spat which unfolded yesterday by posting emojis of the two animals on her page.

Claire was commenting on Coleen’s viral post which accused Rebekah of passing on private information about her to the Press.
The mum-of-four had blocked all but Rebekah from her private Instagram account and posted a number of fictitious tales which then made it to the papers.
Coleen decided Rebekah must be the culprit, something the pregnant WAG has strongly denied.
Coleen’s original post, which has been “liked” more than 275,000 times, read: “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).
“Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the Sun newspaper.
I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account.”
“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.”
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.”
Each of the stories provided to The Sun was put to Coleen’s representatives before publication, and on each occasion they declined to comment.
A Sun Spokesperson said: “Like all reputable media organisations, we don’t comment on sources.”
