Coleen, the eldest of four children, was born in Liverpool to parents Tony and Colette McLoughlin, and has known Wayne since they were children.

The pair met when they were just 12 years old and began dating when they were 16, before marrying in Portofino, Italy, in 2008.

Coleen has over 1m followers on her official Twitter page, and over 750,000 on her Instagram.

She hit the headlines in October 2019 when she posted a message to her social media accounts pointing the finger at fellow 'WAG' Rebekah Vardy - wife of Jamie Vardy - as someone who had betrayed her trust.

Rebekah responded with incredulity and suggested that Coleen "should have called" if she thought something was amiss regarding the leaking of stories to newspapers.
