Rebekah Vardy is expected to deny Coleen Rooney's claims that she was "The Secret Wag" in a bomb court. This is the source of the Sun newspaper revealing stories about Coleen and other footballer's partner, MailOnline.
It is believed that Rebekah will swear an oath to the judge attempting the couple's upcoming libel case that she was wrongly accused in Coleen's secret "Wagatha Christie" stabbing operation on social media, according to sources.
Rebekah launched a £ 1 million libel suit in the High Court after Coleen accused her in an Instagram post a year ago of relaying stories about her and others to the media.
The latest move follows Coleen's sensational 55-page defense document, unveiled exclusively by MailOnline last month, in which she detailed why she believed Rebekah was behind the anonymous "Secret Wag" column in The Sun.
She described Rebekah as "an established history and a common practice of making private information available to journalists".
But MailOnline can show that Rebekah, 38, has now told her friends that she will emphatically refuse to be the "secret wag".

A source said, "Becky will publicly swear under oath in the High Court that she was not the so-called Secret Wag for the paper."
The Secret Wag issue is viewed as central by lawyers on both sides to determining whether Rebecca shared stories from Coleen's private social media accounts to The Sun, which she has consistently denied.
The first hearing on the libel case is scheduled for Thursday, and both wags are preparing to fight.
Rebekah's refusal will be the crucial part of the trial against her rival, who accused her of relaying stories to the media and of being the squeaker of the sun.
During the hearing, it is assumed that the mother of four will have to explain to Coleen what she meant in her allegations and show that she has "reasonable grounds" for claiming that Rebekah made up the stories "directly or indirectly".
While Rebekah and her legal team have to describe at the half-day hearing how they want to prove their defamation suit against Coleen.
After hearing the arguments of both sides, a judge will set the parameters for the process, which will begin fully in the next year.
The & # 39; Wagatha Christie & # 39; saga began a year ago when Coleen tweeted that she had secretly planted three fake stories on Instagram in the months before, but said she had stopped all of her followers except Rebekah from seeing it see.
After stories appeared containing references to the forged posts, Coleen explained the results of their investigation and announced, “It is. . . Rebekah Vardy's account. & # 39;
The mother of four, who Kai, 10, Klay, 7, Kit, 4 and Cass, 2 shares with 34-year-old Derby County soccer player Wayne, is determined to fight the libel case.
For her part, Rebekah is looking for significant damage, saying she suffered "severe and extreme hostility and abuse" in fallout after the allegations were posted on Instagram.
She said she was suicidal from the allegations against her.
She vowed to fight and said to Good Morning Britain, “I have to erase my name, I want to erase my name. I will do whatever it takes and I hope it will be resolved soon. & # 39;
The document filed by Coleen's attorneys last month made it clear that she stood by every word of the tweets and Instagram posts that prompted Rebekah to take legal action.

Coleen has a 55-page defense document detailing why she believed Rebekah was behind the anonymous column, & # 39; Secret Wag & # 39; in The Sun.
She named a variety of journalists and showbiz agents that Rebekah was allegedly in contact with through various stories leaked.
It relates to the Claimant's (Vardy's) established history and habit of providing private information to journalists and the press, including the Sunday newspapers The Sun and The Sun, with which she has particularly close relationships.
The Claimant made this available sometimes directly, sometimes anonymously (under the pseudonym & # 39; The Secret Wag & # 39 ;, a regular gossip column in The Sun that she was the source of, although she denied it), and sometimes through third parties, which acted as approved or tolerated by it. & # 39;
Model Danielle Lloyd was also involved after posting remarks on the Internet supporting Coleen's claim that Rebekah was the Sun's informant.
However, Rebekah's legal team warned her not to make "baseless allegations" against her client.
Ms. Lloyd's attorney Tony Nelson told MailOnline that his client had received a letter from Rebekah's attorneys.
But he added, “She is a mother of four and has much more important things to do in her life than just getting involved.
"It's over for them."
A spokesman for Coleen, who had reported Rebekah's efforts to deny she was the "secret Wag" in the High Court, also declined to comment.
Sun Newspapers Editor-in-Chief Victoria Watson said, "We have no comment on this."
