Rebekah Vardy has said arguing with Coleen Rooney would be like "arguing with a pigeon" as the fallout from their highly public dispute continues.

Rooney, the wife of former England football captain Wayne, made headlines around the world after alleging she had turned detective to prove Vardy's Instagram account was the source of leaked stories about her private life.

Vardy, the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie, furiously denies any wrongdoing and said she has hired a cyber security expert to clear her name.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Vardy (37) revealed what was said in a phone call between the two women after Rooney tweeted her allegations.

"I said to her: 'Coleen, what on earth have you done?'," Vardy said.

"It was not an easy phone call. She said to me: 'I'm not pointing the finger' and I said: 'You have just annihilated me in public and hung me out to dry. The whole world hates me!'"

Asked if they argued on the phone, Vardy replied: "That would be like arguing with a pigeon. You can tell it that you are right and it is wrong, but it's still going to s*** in your hair."

Rooney (33) said she had spent months trying to find out who was leaking stories about her to the Sun newspaper.

Vardy said third parties had access to her Instagram account and an expert is working to discover who was behind the leaks.

A spokesman for Rooney said: "It is irrefutable that the leaks came from one account, and one account only."
