Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy 's civil court case is reportedly expected to take place in London's High Court next week.

Coleen, 34, is being sued by 38 year old Becky for libel after Wayne Rooney's wife accused Rebekah's Instagram account of "informing the press of her online posts" last year.

Since Coleen’s accusation, Dancing on Ice star Rebekah denied the claims and has since filed a lawsuit against the WAG for defamation.

Although it had previously been reported the pair would be having a showdown this month, it's now been claimed they will lock horns next Thursday 19 November.

According to The Sun, a judge is expected to make a crucial ruling on what Coleen must prove to win the case against Becky.

The publication states that this will allow a judge to decide on whether Coleen's claims against Becky should be interpreted as Becky herself was to blame or someone else who had access to her Instagram account.

Our insider said: “Rebekah has been telling pals that she isn’t worried about the court case because she has nothing to worry about, even though there is a lot of evidence.

“She’s trying to look like sweetness and light on the ice in a pair of skates, but Coleen’s not silly, she knows what this is about – she feels it’s all about winning favour with the public.
