Coleen says she had suspicions one of her followers was leaking stories from her personal Instagram to The Sun.

'There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family - all without my permission or knowledge. "Get Me Out Of Here!" star Vardy, the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy. "Rebekah Vardy's account" in the process.

One of Coleen's supporters suggested she be awarded for her efforts, with the user writing: "the pulitzer prize for investigative reporting goes to coleen rooney".

Coleen's post on Twitter had more than 12,000 retweets and 42,000 likes within an hour of it being uploaded.

"Can someone explain to me the goal of The View?".

"I'm disgusted that I'm even having to deny this".

"You were at my wedding Denise.", McCain responded hours later, sparking hundreds of memes, commentary and jokes.

The story was released on Rooney's Twitter account in an incredibly dramatic fashion.

She apparently had an idea of who was behind it all but rather than, you know, talk to that person directly, she launched herself into a five-month-long investigation where she blocked everyone except for her suspect from seeing her stories. They know that it's not true and that I did not.

Rooney said that the false details she shared included her a story on her researching "gender selection" treatment in Mexico, another on her considering a return to TV hosting, and one about something as mundane as the basement in her home flooding.

Wayne, also 33, previously hit back at The Sun in August amid cheating allegations, stating the publication "ran a front page story making it look like I took a girl back to my team hotel".

The Sun also commented: "Each of the stories provided to The Sun was put to Coleen's representatives before publication, and on each occasion they declined to comment".

Rooney said she had removed access to all users except Rebekah Vardy, and alleged a series of "false" stories that she posted on there found their way to United Kingdom tabloid The Sun. If you thought this was happening you could have told me and I could have changed passwords to see if it stopped.

Vardy replied to Rooney on Twitter, saying she "never" speaks to journalists about her and that she recently discovered that "various people have had access to my insta".

Vardy said that she did not "need the money" and had nothing to gain from selling any stories to the newspapers.

"As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this", she wrote in response to Rooney's post.

The Sun and The Daily Mirror are now facing a lawsuit from Prince Harry for allegations of phone hacking and stealing his voicemails. In the post, Coleen revealed she had been posting fake information about her life in an effort to catch the responsible account.
