Court listings show that Vardy filed a claim for defamation libel and slander to the supreme court on 12 June.
In November, Rooney was ordered to pay Vardy £23,000 in costs after Mr Justice Warby rejected claims that Rooney’s accusation was addressed to Vardy’s social media account instead of at Vardy as a private . a trial was scheduled for Februrary 2021.

Now, in an interview with the times, Vardy was asked if the scandal had left her tempted to quit social media.
“I went through such a lot crap in my life being told I couldn’t do that or that. Now i might never allow someone I don’t know to regulate what i would like to try to to .”
At now within the interview, Vardy’s manager added: “This year taught you to ignore social media more, didn’t it?”
Vardy replied: “Yeah. My eldest saw stuff thereon that basically affected her. I told her, you’ve got to travel , ‘Do i actually care?’ Well, no, not really. As long as my kids are happy, none of it matters.”
Vardy has five children, including three together with her husband, footballer Jamie Vardy. She was seven-months pregnant with Olivia Grace, born in December 2019, when the Wagatha Christie scandal unfolded.
