From Wagatha Christie to The Thin Roo Line, Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney's iconic social media feud has become an instant online hit. 

Coleen, a TV personality and the wife of former Manchester United footballer Wayne Rooney, posted a message to her account, explaining how she had used an elaborate Instagram ruse to discover how stories about her family were leaking to the press.

She wrote: "I blocked everyone from viewing my Instagram stories except ONE account. (Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven't had stories on there for a while.)"

"Over the past five months, I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the Sun newspaper. And you know what, they did!"

She then finished the post with the now-iconic line: "It's ... Rebekah Vardy's account."

Vardy, a past contestant on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here and wife of English footballer Jamie Vardy, responded to the accusation on her Instagram account, saying that Coleen had never contacted her privately on the matter and that she had nothing to do with the stories being leaked. 

She wrote: "Over the years, various people have had access to my Insta & just this week I found I was following people I didn't know and have never followed myself. I'm not being funny but I don't need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?"

Ultimately, the online dispute was heavily embraced by internet users. Celebrities, journalists, sports fans and WAG followers alike found themselves gripped by the tea that was being so publicly spilled.

It seemed that just about everyone on Twitter was ready for a brief respite from #Budget2020 and #Brexit, and were more than happy to make way for the, frankly genius, hashtag #WAGathaChristie.

Below are some of the most entertaining tweets so far:
