Nicola McLean declares she ‘stands by’ pal Rebekah Vardy after Wagatha ruling

Former glamour model Nicola McLean has defended her pal Rebekah Vardy and believes' the star did not leak any stories to the press.

The outspoken star has been one of Rebekah’s loudest allies throughout to cut-throat trial, and has spoken out yet again about her innocence in a defiant post on her Instagram.

The mum-of-four was asked by one of her 257k followers in a question and answer session: “Do you still believe Rebekah didn’t leak stories??”

Nicola replied: “I stand by Becky all the way.”

Yet despite the judge’s verdict ruling in Coleen’s favour, Nicola has continued to support her friend, and insists the hate towards her “needs to stop”.

Rebekah revealed how vile trolls sent sick death threats to husband Jamie as she battled her Wagatha Christie court case.

The mum-of-five, 40, slammed those involved and admitted she draws the line at people attacking her family during the libel case.

It was revealed in July that there would be a Channel 4 documentary on the showdown, titled Vardy v Rooney: A Courtroom Drama.

Nicola says that she has already filmed scenes for the upcoming TV show.

She told Closer, “I’ve taken part in the documentary – I don’t think this story is ever going to end.

“Rebekah is not happy with the outcome, but I’m glad it’s over for many different reasons. It took a toll on a lot of people’s mental health.”

Last week, Nicola revealed she had invited Becky to be bridesmaid at her vow renewal, 14 years after she married former Queens Park Rangers and West Ham footballer Tom Williams in 2009.

Last month, Mrs Justice Steyn ruled in favour of Coleen Rooney in the libel case and said Rebekah Vardy "knew of and condoned this behaviour" of her agent Caroline Watt passing information about her fellow WAG to the press.

Discussing the outcome of the explosive trial on Monday's Good Morning Britain, hosts Kate Garraway and Richard Madeley invited pal Nicola onto the ITV show to comment on Rebekah's next move.

"The thing is, the judge in this case basically said that she'd lied off her face. There's a sense that there's something wrong with her being able to make a lot of money off the back of telling porkies?"

"For three years this has been absolutely glorified by everyone, people have loved reading about it so I think why shouldn't both girls, not just Rebekah, but if Coleen wants to also do Netflix docs or whatever it's been reported, then why not?
