'Tanya got offered hundreds and hundreds of opportunities to do modelling and do stories and she never done none of them.

'She's the opposite to these girls now. People ask me "what do you think of these two girls?" and I think it's quite funny and everything else, what about the embarrassment to their husbands, no thought of the kids.

'Whereas Tans did one interview and she brought Lynda Lee Potter to her knees with the story of the heart transplant. 

The emotional actor also broke down in tears as he revealed his late wife told him and their daughter 'not to grieve' as she will be waiting for them both in heaven.

Coleen and Wayne Rooney
Rebekah and Jamie Vardy

Others halves: Coleen has been married to ex England star Wayne Rooney since 2009 while Rebekah (R) tied the knot with Leicester footballer Jamie Vardy in 2016

He said: 'She said don't grieve, I'll be waiting for you. So I've got something to look forward to.'

He paid tribute to his 'great supporter' who was a 'fantastically gorgeous looking woman'.

He said she would 'never want to be special', refused to give press interviews and didn't want to ruin her family's festivities when she got a call to say her cancer had spread to her brain last year.   

The interview comes as Coleen and Rebekah's very public war of words with fellow WAG Rebekah, after accusing her of selling stories about her to a newspaper, rages on.  

Coleen took to Instagram and Twitter to 'expose' Rebekah for allegedly taking stories from her private social media accounts and selling them to them to The Sun on Wednesday..

He said: 'She's the opposite to these girls now. People ask me "what do you think of these two girls?" and I think it's quite funny and everything else, what about the embarrassment to their husbands, no thought of the kids'

She wrote: 'For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories. 

'There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family - all without my permission or knowledge. After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion.

'To try and prove this, I came up with an idea, I blocked everyone from viewing Instagram except ONE account. '

She continued: '(Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven't had stories on there for a while). Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the Sun newspaper.

'And you know what, they did! The story about gender selection in Mexico, the story about returning to TV and then the latest story about the basement flood in my new house.

'It's been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been leaked, however I had to. Now I know for certain which account/individual it's come from.

'I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It's......... Rebekah Vardy's account.'

She also wrote: 'This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it......'  

Rebekah hit back minutes later on social media and denied the accusations. She wrote: 'Can't believe I'm even having to write this. I'm pregnant & on holiday & am at a loss to why she would do this.

'I'm now having to take legal advice as I can't deal with this stress myself when I'm this pregnant. I'm now having to take legal advice as I can't deal with this stress myself when I'm this pregnant.'

She also shared: 'As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this.'  

Her spokesperson also told MailOnline: 'Please refer to Becky’s social media posts.

'It isn’t true, she is now very upset and stressed so has passed it to her legal team to deal with. Such a shame that Coleen didn’t just call her when she had her number.'     

An insider exclusively told MailOnline: 'Rebekah has been incredibly stressed and hasn’t stopped sobbing all day, which is very out of character for her.

'The whole situation has left her distraught and she still doesn’t understand why Coleen didn’t reach out to her first to ask her outright about the issue.

'I don't need the money': Rebekah denied all accusations against her minutes after the post and said she had nothing to gain and had no financial motivation - she also slammed her for going public when she is heavily pregnant

 'She’s flying home early from Dubai as she feels her time abroad has been spoilt and all she wants is to be surrounded by family.

'Rebekah wants to prove she had nothing to do with the leaked stories and is working with a lawyer and IT experts who can look at the forensics of her Instagram, which several people have access to.'  

Rebekah cut her family holiday in Dubai short after Coleen's dramatic accusation on Wednesday, which has enthralled Britain in the so-called 'war of the WAGs.' 

The brunette is said to have threatened her new rival with legal action over allegations of leaking staged Instagram stories, warning her: 'Believe me or I'll see you in court.'

The feuding pair are reportedly communicating through their lawyers in the wake of the bitter row which has dominated social media and newspapers this week.

A source close to heavily pregnant Rebekah now claims she is fully prepared to face her fellow WAG in court if she refuses to believe her.   

Jamie's wife recently gave an interview with The Daily Mail, in which she insisted arguing with Coleen is akin to rowing 'with a pigeon'. 

It has been revealed that Rebekah has hired a team of forensic IT experts after the mother-of-four accused her of selling stories to the press through information she obtained from her private Instagram. 

An insider exclusively told MailOnline on Wednesday that 'Rebekah wants to prove she had nothing to do with the leaked stories and is working with a lawyer and IT experts who can look at the forensics of her Instagram, which several people have access to.' 

Meanwhile, friends of the Liverpudlian beauty say she will not be goaded into coming forward with any further evidence as she is happy with her own investigations.  

Rebekah had previously demanded to see screenshots of the Instagram stories and who had viewed them. 

They added: 'Rebekah has been incredibly stressed and hasn't stopped sobbing all day, which is very out of character for her. 

'The whole situation has left her distraught and she still doesn't understand why Coleen didn't reach out to her first to ask her outright about the issue. 

'She's flying home early from Dubai as she feels her time abroad has been spoilt and all she wants is to be surrounded by family. 

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