They tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in Italy, with wedding said to have cost an estimated £5m.

After both a civil and church ceremony – and three dress changes for Coleen – the newlyweds celebrated at the Villa Durazzo, for a champagne reception, which continued on until 4am.

A live band played a medley of Frank Sinatra songs and enjoyed a £50,000 firework display. True to form, the couple reportedly decided against sophisticated fare, opting for a sit-down meal of pizza.

Since then, the pair have welcomed four sons and have battled through their fair share of hardships, but have continued to stand by one another.

Back In 2009 it was revealed that former escort Helen Wood had a threesome with the then-Manchester United player Wayne and her friend, and former escort, Jenny Thompson.

Helen has previously said that the glare of the media spotlight was unwelcome and uninvited and came only after Jenny went to the tabloids to name her.

In 2019 the former England captain’s marriage was said to be ‘hanging by a thread’ after he was spotted drinking with barmaid Vicki Rosiek until 2.30am.

In 2017, just before he was due to move to the US, the former England captain apologised for his ‘unforgivable lack of judgement’ as he was banned from driving for two years and given 100 hours’ community service after a drinking heavily with a party girl.

He was stopped by police while driving 29-year-old Laura Simpson home from a night out in her Volkswagen Beetle in Wilmslow, Cheshire, at 2am on September 1. Rooney was stopped because Miss Simpson’s car had a faulty brake light.

Coleen was then pregnant with the couple’s fourth child – and was seen without her wedding ring. For a period it appeared they were living separately but Mrs Rooney took him back after his apology.

And now The Wagatha Christie trial has seen Rebekah Vardy, 40, the wife of Leicester City strike Jamie Vardy, suing Coleen for libel after she claimed Rebekah had leaked stories about her to the press.
