In her first interview since her court loss, Ms Vardy told TalkTV’s Kate McCann she felt ‘let down’ by the legal system
The wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy appeared to get emotional in a teaser clip of the interview released by Talk TV. She said she feels “let down by the legal system” after the 高等法院 ruled that she was behind a series of stories about Ms Rooney that were leaked to newspapers.
Ms Justice Steyn found that even if Ms Vardy was not the direct source of the leak, evidence showed that she “knew of, condoned and actively engaged” in the passing of information to 太阳. In her judgement, Ms Justice Steyn said that Ms Vardy’s evidence to the trial was “manifestly inconsistent with the contemporaneous documentary evidence.”
In her first interview since the ruling, Ms Vardy told TalkTV’s Kate McCann: “I will say that ‘till I’m blue in the face. I did not do it.”
The interview will be broadcast on TalkTV at 7pm this evening.

“The genie of confidentiality cannot be put back in the bottle once the defence has been filed,” Ms Rooney’s legal team warned ahead of trial, but Ms Vardy pressed ahead regardless – eager to prove that she did not leak Ms Rooney’s private information to 太阳.
Like a tornado sucking in debris, the libel trial has enveloped more and more people daily.
