    To Wag-watch...

    Coleen Rooney, wife of English footballer Wayne, has created her own "whodunit?" plot to uncover who was leaking news off her private Instagram account.

    Dubbed "Wagatha Christie", she's admitted to planting false stories while painstakingly blocking every other follower, bar one.

    In a Scooby-Doo ending, Rooney's accused Rebekah Vardy, wife of Jamie, one of her husband's England teammates as the culprit.

    Vardy's denied the allegation.
