Lizzie Cundy defends friend Coleen Rooney and insists ‘she’s in love with Wayne’

Lizzie Cundy has defended her friend Coleen Rooney and her decision to stand by her footballer husband Wayne’s side despite his many infidelities.

Speaking on Wednesday’s Lorraine, Lizzie, 53, said: ‘There’s been a lot of mud slung at her. She wants people to realise why she’s still with Wayne. She wants to speak out because she’s in love with Wayne.’

Lizzie made her comments in the wake of the release of the trailer for Amazon Prime documentary Rooney, which charts the life and career of the footballer and saw Coleen tearfully admit Wayne’s many public cheating scandals were ‘unacceptable’.
