Coleen Rooney (pictured) was initially determined not to pay any of the costs because she offered Ms Vardy a ‘hands-free’ deal, which meant they would both leave and pay their own bills, but Ms Vardy declined the offer.

The Mail on Sunday understands Ms Vardy, 40, the wife of Leicester City star Jamie Vardy, will have to pay around three-quarters of the legal costs, which are expected to be between £2.5-3million.

Ms Rooney will have to pay the rest, around £700,000.

She had originally been determined not to pay any of the fees because she had offered Ms Vardy a ‘hands-free’ deal, which meant they would both go away and pay their own bills, but Ms Vardy declined l ‘offer.

Spokespersons for both parties declined to comment last night.
