The Wagatha Christie verdict will be out tomorrow.

A two-part drama series about the Wagatha Christie trial is in the works.

According to reports, the libel drama between Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy is set to be turned into a TV series.

Vardy v Rooney: A Courtroom Drama will air on Channel 4.

Coleen and Wayne Rooney and Rebekah and James Vardy will all be portrayed by actors. However, the cast has yet to be announced.

The court case will be portrayed in the show with producers using transcripts from the actual trial.

The media and public’s reaction will also be featured heavily in the series.

It is believed the show will feature explosive scenes that went on in court earlier this summer.

Oonagh Kearney will direct the series.

She said it is bound to be a gripping watch considering the public interest in the case.

“This trial utterly captivated the public with its daily feed of entertaining exchanges and jaw-dropping reveals.

“But behind this, is a story of two women under constant public scrutiny, fighting for their reputations.”

The producers said they want to show the public what went on in the courtroom because very few people got to see what unfolded.

“The court case… captivated the entire nation but very few people actually got to see what happened inside the courtroom,” said creative director Tom Popay.

The team is hoping to tell the story in a “unique” way.

They also want the public to see what really happened during the trial.

“We’re hoping we can get to the bottom of how this case fascinated and amazed so many.”

The news about the show comes after the Wagatha Christie verdict date was confirmed.

It is understood that the verdict will be announced tomorrow, July 29th.
