Vardy vs. Rooney: A Courtroom Drama FIRST LOOK: Chanel Creswell morphs into Coleen

Chanel Creswell, 32, looks like Coleen Rooney at first glance at the TV adaptation of her now infamous Wagatha Christie trial starring Rebekah Vardy.

The This Is England star, 32, sported an elegant brunette ponytail and a printed Zara dress in the picture she is seen alongside Welsh actor Michael Sheen.

While Chanel will star as Coleen, Michael will play the role of her high-profile attorney, David Sherborne.

Sheen has played real life figures before, including former Prime Minister Tony Blair, presenter Chris Tarrant and footballer Brian Clough.

Vardy v Rooney: A Courtroom drama, created from the real court transcripts, gives viewers a chance to relive the non-televised scenes from the courtroom and all the drama that kept the public and media in suspense for weeks.

Wearing the £32.99 dress from high street brand Zara, the Bay star looked ready to take on Natalia Tena, 37, who plays Rebekah Vardy, 40.

The Harry Potter actress wore a £1,316 Chanel knit dress with a £556 Veronica Beard blazer, a US brand previously worn by Meghan Markle that mimicked WAG’s expensive courtroom style, which also starred Prada, Alexander McQueen and Edeline Lee.

Professor and the Madman actor Simon Coury will play Rebekah’s attorney Hugh Tomlinson KC, who has represented a number of high-profile clients including Lily Allen, David and Victoria Beckham, Ashley Cole and Ryan Giggs.

In the special two-part film, Dion Lloyd will also play former England footballer Wayne Rooney, while Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is played by Marci Nagyszokolyai.

The Chalkboard-produced programme, which produced the BBC’s historical murder series Murder, Mystery and My Family, will air later this year.

The former friends first fell out publicly in 2019 when Coleen accused Rebekah of sharing posts from her personal Instagram account with The Sun.

Her rigorous search for the culprit earned her the title Wagatha Christie, in honor of crime writer Agatha Christie.

Rebekah denied the claims and sued for defamation but lost in the High Court in July, where her evidence was found “manifestly contradictory” and “not credible”.

Earlier this month she was ordered to pay 90 per cent of Coleen’s legal bills, with the first £800,000 to be paid within six weeks.

The former Dancing on Ice contestant also has her own lawyers’ bills to pay, meaning the huge cost of her failed defamation lawsuit is around £4million.

Reportedly faces of Rebekah an estimated £1.5million legal bill for her costs following her libel fight in the “Wagatha Christie” High Court.

WAG, whose reputation is in tatters after scoring one of the worst own goals in British legal history, is believed to have to raise £800,000 within weeks.

It comes to the hands of a High Court judge who dismissed her evidence as “evasive or implausible” in one of the most closely watched cases in recent years

She was accused of intentionally deleting WhatsApp messages central to the case, as it was suspected her agent also intentionally dropped her phone in the North Sea.

Vardy and her footballer husband stood by the bill after Ms Justice Steyn ruled in a ruling in Rooney’s favor that parts of her sworn statements were “manifestly inconsistent”, “not credible” and needed to be treated as “very”. great caution”.

She lost her high-profile defamation lawsuit against Rooney in July when Judge Steyn ruled that Rooney’s viral social media post accusing Vardy of leaking her private information to the press was “essentially true.”

It followed a viral social media post in which Rooney revealed that she had posted fake stories on her Instagram page. These false stories then surfaced in The Sun newspaper.

Since she’d changed her settings so only one user could see it, she felt confident in making the famous declaration, “It’s … Rebekah Vardy’s account.”

In an order released Tuesday, the judge ruled that Vardy should pay 90% of Rooney’s costs.
