A source told The Sun: ‘Some of the Wags, especially Fern and Ruby Mae, have said on WhatsApp they are worried about what might have come out, and whether it was anything to do with Becky or her associates.
‘And women have been freaking out and ‘doing a Coleen’ — to see if the same thing has happened to them as happened to her.

Concerns: Coleen publicly accused Rebekah of sharing stories about her back in October, but other WAGs are worried private details about them may potentially be leaked
‘They have scrutinised past messages and stories and gone over things with a fine-tooth comb.’
The insider went on to say Harry Maguire’s partner Fern was in particularly worried about stories concerning her other half’s £85million transfer from Leicester to Man United last Summer.
While other WAGS were reported to have ‘distanced themselves’ from the mother-of-five.

However, the source adds their actions have been ‘unfair’ on the I’m A Celebrity star as no one has so far produced a ‘smoking gun.’
Pals including Abbey Clancy and Real Housewives of Cheshire stars Tanya Bardsley and Dawn Ward are said to have shared their support for Coleen.
The publication also reports Coleen has continued her investigation over Rebekah and has been assisted by former England player Jamie Carragher’s wife, Nicola Hart.

MailOnline have contacted representatives of Coleen, Rebekah, Fern, Ruby, Nicola, Abbey, Dawn and Tanya for comment.
Meanwhile, it’s been reported on Saturday, Wayne Rooney’s wife Coleen has dropped her plans to counter-sue Rebekah Vardy for breach of privacy after her rival WAG launched the £1million court case.
It’s said the mother-of-four has changed her mind, feeling it would be in bad taste at a time when the coronavirus pandemic has left many struggling financially.

An insider said: ‘Coleen has tried to explain how bad this looks but Becky isn’t having any of it.
‘It’s now going to look like two spoilt women who have far too much money, arguing over something that is trivial in comparison to what is happening in the wider world.’
This week Coleen branded Rebekah’s decision to issue court proceedings ‘disappointing’ in a statement issued via her legal team.
Coleen’s lawyer Paul Lunt of Brabners said in a statement: ‘It is disappointing that Mrs Vardy has chosen to issue court proceedings.
‘Coleen feels that the time and money involved could be put to better use; her offer to meet face to face still stands.

‘Mrs Vardy’s decision to issue court proceedings does at least mean that Coleen’s evidence can be made public when the time is right.’
The WAGs have been at loggerheads after Coleen publicly accused Becky’s Instagram account of leaking stories about her last year – something which she vehemently denies.
Becky is said to have filed paperwork, claiming her ex friend Coleen libelled or slandered her on social media when she posted the serious allegation.
Last month, the pair held a video meeting in a last-ditch attempt to avoid a very public and expensive court hearing, yet it ended in a bitter deadlock.

It is now said it could cost each side £500,000 in legal fees, but Becky is ‘completely determined to clear her name at any cost’.
A source told The Sun: ‘Becky has made it clear to Coleen that she is deadly serious about clearing her name, and wants a full public apology.
‘It’s not about money. As far as Becky is concerned, she wants her costs and vindication…
‘But since Coleen still refuses to agree to an apology, she’s gone ahead with filing the paperwork at the High Court.
The statement: Last October, Coleen publicly accused Becky’s account in a statement of selling fake stories about her, sparking an angry denial from the then-pregnant WAG
‘It’s a very expensive thing to do and the expectation is costs could run towards half a million pounds for each side but she’s completely determined to clear her name at any cost.’
The pair’s row began last October, when Coleen claimed Becky’s Instagram account was the source leaking stories from her private Instagram account to the press.
The WAG rivals were previously good pals until Coleen made the shock allegation in an explosive social media statement last year.
Coleen admitted that stories about her basement flooding, returning to TV and gender selection were only viewed by Becky and these were subsequently followed by media outlets, including MailOnline.
Becky, who denies all allegations and was pregnant at the time, cut her family holiday to Dubai short after the dramatic accusation, which captured Britain in the so-called ‘war of the WAGs’ and earned Coleen the nickname of ‘Wagatha Christie’.
At the time, sources close to Becky said leading law firm, Kingsley Napley, had sent Coleen a letter on her behalf demanding she provides them with the evidence she has against Becky so that she can complete her investigation.
Becky is said to have called in a forensic team to analyse her Instagram account following the explosive claims. The aim is to identify the mole who sold fake stories to The Sun from Coleen’s Instagram account.
