Colin and Rebecca both shared family photos of the festivals where the drama of their experience was played out on TV.

Coleen and her husband Wayne enjoyed a family day out in Lapland UK with their sons Clay, nine, Kate, six and Cass, four.

The media personality shared a sweet photo of her young family getting ready for a Christmas photo shoot with Santa and said they had an “amazing day.”

“Thank you laplanduk for a great day as always,” Colin captioned the snap.

In the photo, the boys beam as they stand next to Santa Claus holding matching dog plush toys. Their eldest son, Kai, 13, was missing from the exit.

Meanwhile, Rebecca took her kids for a day at Bilton House in Lincolnshire hours before the show was to air.

WAG shared a snap of her with kids Taylor, 11, Sophia, 7, Finlay, 4, and Olivia, 2.

Rebecca is also mom to daughter Megan, 17, from a previous relationship.

The former friends first publicly fell out in 2019 when Coleen accused Rebecca of leaking posts from her private Instagram account to The Sun.

Her rigorous espionage to find the culprit earned her the nickname Wagata Christie, a reference to the mystery writer Agatha Christie.

Rebecca denied the allegations and sued for defamation, but lost in the Supreme Court in July as her testimony was deemed “manifestly inconsistent” and “unreliable”.

In October, she was required to pay 90 per cent of Colin’s legal bills with the first £800,000 to be paid within six weeks.

The former Dancing on Ice contestant also has to pay her solicitors’ bills, which means the massive cost of her failed defamation claim is around £4m.

Rebecca is reportedly facing a £1.5m legal bill to cover her costs after her ‘Wagatha Christie’ High Court defamation battle.

It is believed that the WAG – whose reputation has been in tatters after scoring one of the worst goals in the history of British law – should find £800,000 of it in weeks.

This comes at the hands of a Supreme Court judge who dismissed her testimony 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 where it was suggested her agent deliberately dropped her phone into the North Sea.

Vardy and her footballer husband were left with the bill after Dame Justice Stein ruled in favor of Rooney in a ruling that said large portions of her evidence she had given under oath was ‘manifestly inconsistent’, ‘unreliable’ and needed to be dealt with with “very”. Extreme caution.’

She lost a high-profile defamation allegation against Rooney in July when Judge Stein ruled that Rooney’s viral social media post accusing Vardy of leaking her private information to the press was ‘largely true’.

This followed a social media post where Ronnie revealed that she had posted false stories on her Instagram page. Then these bogus tales appeared in The Sun.

Since she had changed her settings so that only one user could see them, she felt confident issuing the famous “It’s … Rebekah Vardy account” ad.

In an order published on Tuesday, the judge ruled that Vardy must pay 90% of Rooney’s costs.

Rooney incurred total costs of over £2m, but £350,000 of those costs had already been accumulated before the trial in May, so these were removed to produce a final figure of £1,667,860.

Vardy was ordered to foot the £800,000 costs bill by 4pm on 15 November.
