If you read only one exchange from the ‘Wagatha Christie’ trial make it this one
To the ‘Wagatha Christie’ libel trial, where Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney are locked in a costly and increasingly messy battle over accusations that Vardy passed information from Rooney’s private Instagram account to the Sun.
The High Court trial has prompted no end of comment as you might imagine.
The Vardy v Rooney case should be settled by a family penalty shootout. Cheaper and way more fun.

Were I advising Rooney and Vardy, I'd say knock it on the head, give a million quid between you to the @bowelbabe fund and go home and hug your children. Both of them would come out of all this far better as a result. #wagathachristie

And there was a moment today which went particularly viral, posted here by the Guardian’s Jim Waterson.
Rooney’s lawyer claims WhatsApp messages that would show the leaking of stories to the Sun are on a phone dropped off the side of a boat. He says it is now “lying at the bottom of sea in Davy Jones’ locker”.
Vardy asks the court: “Who is Davy Jones?”
The judge intervenes.

To be filed under, ‘If you only read one exchange from the ‘Wagatha Christie’ trial make it this one.’
Until the next one, obviously.

How this isnt being filmed while I cant move without seeing ridiculous clips from the Depp/Heard trial is frankly absurd

Fantastic stuff Jim. Does the winner of this one get to take on the winner of Depp v Heard?

Who is Davy Jones, who is Davy Jones’ wife, what is his net worth

And just in case you were wondering.
So uncultured. He played for Derby in the mid-2000s. Scored a banger of a free-kick against Sheffield Wednesday. https://t.co/20B5sQ0f9h

To conclude …
“Who is Davy Jones”.
Honestly, this is the trial of the century. https://t.co/bPo4JuBVuA
