Admitting she thought the case was a waste of court time, Angie told hosts Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard: " Of course they had their right to air their grievances but I just think it's really sad that it's come this far. And if these two girls can't fix it in the playground you have to go to the headmistress' office, I suppose!

"They're fortunate enough to be privileged enough to be able to do this, but I just think that their egos have gotten the better of them."

Susanna then asked Jonathan: "We're hearing the airing of a lot of dirty laundry in that court case and the only people that are benefitting are the lawyers – as a lawyer, is that the case?"

"In many ways, it is, I regret to say and I can own up on behalf of most lawyers," he replied. "It was always a huge risk for Rebekah Vardy because she was going to be very closely cross-examined and that process was going to bring a lot of dirt out and that is indeed what's happening.

"So I fear that as an exercise to protect her reputation, at the moment it's not going very well."

The trial continues today.
