Just last month it was reported that Rebekah ‘faces a new court date over her Wagatha Christie’ following alleged complaints from a linen company. 

The media personality famously took Coleen Rooney to the High Court for libel – and lost – after Coleen claimed in October 2019 that stories about her were being leaked to the Press from Rebekah’s social media account.

She later hit back after the showdown by trademarking the iconic Wagatha Christie phrase to ‘cash in’.

But, a new report on Saturday suggested that the WAG might be ‘put through the wringer’ once more, after brand homeware brand Christy claimed Rebekah’s brand is too similar to theirs. 

According to The Mirror, the company have ‘lodged a complaint with the Intellectual Property Office’.

A source told the publication: ‘The last thing Becky needs is to be put through the wringer again.’ 

MailOnline contacted representatives for Rebekah and Christy for comment at the time. 

The phrase Wagatha Christie, which was coined by comedian Dan Atkinson in 2019, was trademarked eight months ago by the company London Entertainment Inc Ltd.

Rebekah’s trademark covers broadcasting, clothing, non-alcoholic beverages, education and beauty and she now has the right to approve its usage by others. 

A source told The Sun in April: ‘This trademark is Becky’s two fingers to Coleen and all the misery associated with “Wagatha Christie”. Becky is shrewd and knew people would try to cash in on the phrase.

‘She now owns the UK trademark and would consider expanding it to other territories if she thought it was needed. 

‘If someone wants to print the logo on a mug, for example, they would be infringing the trademark if they didn’t ask permission. It is a legal grey area in some respects, however, and will be done on a case-by-case basis.’

During the High Court trial, Mrs Justice Steyn said in her judgment in July that it was ‘likely’ that Mrs Vardy’s agent Caroline Watt ‘undertook the direct act’ of passing on information to The Sun.

The judge said: ‘The evidence clearly shows in my view that Mrs Vardy knew of and condoned this behaviour, actively engaging in it.’

Rebekah was ordered to pay up to £1.5million towards Coleen’s legal fees after losing the case, but she still continues to insist she was not the culprit.

And in the documentary series, Vardy vs Rooney: The Wagatha Trial, Rebekah also claims that a mole is still leaking Rooney stories to The Sun – which she also says proves her innocence.

‘The irony is that since I was removed as a follower, stories have been coming thick and fast about the Rooneys,’ she said.

Wagatha Christie timeline: How Coleen and Rebekah’s war unfolded

September 2017 to October 2019 – The Sun runs a number of fake articles about Coleen, which she claimed she only shared with Vardy in a ‘sting’ operation, including that she travelled to Mexico to look into baby ‘gender selection’ treatment, her plan to revive her TV career and the flooding of her basement.

October 9, 2019 – Coleen uses social media to accuse Rebekah of selling stories from her private Instagram account to the tabloids. It prompts #WagathaChristie to start trending.

February 13, 2020 – In a tearful appearance on ITV’s Loose Women, Rebekah says the stress of the dispute caused her to have severe anxiety attacks and she ‘ended up in hospital three times’. 

June 23, 2020 – It emerges that Rebekah has launched libel proceedings against Coleen.

November 19-20, 2020 – The libel battle has its first High Court hearing in London. A judge rules that Coleen’s October 2019 post ‘clearly identified’ Rebekah as being ‘guilty of the serious and consistent breach of trust’.

Mr Justice Warby concludes that the ‘natural and ordinary’ meaning of the posts was that Rebekah had ‘regularly and frequently abused her status as a trusted follower of Coleen’s personal Instagram account by secretly informing The Sun of Coleen’s private posts and stories’.

February 8-9, 2022 – A series of explosive messages between Rebekah and her agent Caroline Watt – which Coleen’s lawyers allege were about her – are revealed at a preliminary court hearing.

Coleen’s lawyers seek further information from the WhatsApp messages, but the court is told that Ms Watt’s phone fell into the North Sea after a boat she was on hit a wave, before further information could be extracted from it.

February 14 – Coleen is refused permission to bring a High Court claim against Mrs Watt for misuse of private information to be heard alongside the libel battle. A High Court judge, Mrs Justice Steyn, says the bid was brought too late and previous opportunities to make the claim had not been taken.

April 13 – Mrs Watt is not fit to give oral evidence at the upcoming libel trial, the High Court is told, as the case returns for another hearing.

May 10 onwards – The trial gets under way.

July 29 – Rebekah loses her defamation case against Coleen, with the judge ruling that the accusation against her was ‘substantially true’.
