Danielle Lloyd is reportedly less than impressed to see her name being dragged into Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney’s legal battle.
Yesterday, former glamour model Danielle, 36, and Dawn Ward, 47, who is married to retired footballer Ashley Ward, were said to have been named in a new 59-page legal document alongside more than 300 other people that Rebekah’s lawyers say were privy to Coleen’s private Instagram account.
Rebekah’s team do not suggest that either Danielle or Dawn were behind the leaks.
The 38-year-old wife of sporting star Jamie Vardy is suing Coleen for libel after Coleen, 34, accused Rebekah’s account of leaking stories about her private life from her social media page, last year.
And an insider close to former Miss England Danielle has told The Sun that she is “hurt” and “angry” for being named in documents submitted by Rebekah’s camp amid the legal wrangles.
Danielle’s lawyer, Tony Nelson, also gave insight into his client’s stance, when he told Mail Online : “Danielle does not want anything to do with this, she does not want to be dragged into the matter.
“She’s got four young children and more important things to concentrate on. She’s not surprised that she’s been dragged into this but she doesn’t want to play any part in it.
“Danielle fully supports her friend Coleen.”

Wayne Rooney’s wife and Jamie Vardy’s wife row began last year when Coleen posted her now-infamous statement – which led to her being dubbed Wagatha Christie.
The Liverpudlian revealed she had laid a trap on her private Instagram account to find out who was leaking stories to the press about her.
She claimed she had blocked every account but Rebekah’s from seeing her posts before sharing a series of fake stories which went on to make it into the press.
Coleen explained what she had done and told her followers the leaks had come from Rebekah’s account.
Rebekah, who was heavily pregnant at the time, denied she was the person behind the leaks and has since sued Coleen for libel.
A judge has ruled that Coleen must now prove it was Rebekah herself and not someone with access to her account who gave the information to the press.
This week, The Sun reported that Danielle and RHOC star Dawn were identified in High Court papers.
It’s said that Becky claims in the papers that both Danielle and Dawn were privy to information on Coleen’s private account, although she does not suggest that either of them was the person behind the leaks.
Rebekah denies being the source of the stories and also denies claims that she wrote The Sun’s Secret Wag column.
It’s said she also accuses Coleen of “victim blaming” and takes a swipe at her investigation, saying it lasted just five weeks and a day and not the five months that Coleen suggested it had gone on for.
Rebekah, who is taking part in the next series of Dancing On Ice, claims that Coleen’s private Instagram was accessible to 367 other people at the time that the stories were leaked, including journalists, publicists and friends who had gossip columns.
Her lawyers don’t point blame at any other person, but instead ask why it was Becky who was accused over anyone else.
The lawyers claim: “The press are independently interested in the claimant and she is married to a famous footballer.
“She does not need to generate interest by trading the defendant’s or others’ private information.”
