Sharing a photo of her pooch, Rebecca wrote: “Thought you should chase those pesky pigeons away from Ralphie why are pugs so lazy.”

Rebecca made the dove remark about Coleen after accusing her of leaking stories to the press in 2019.

Then she said, “It would be like arguing with a pigeon. You can tell him you’re right and he’s wrong, but you’ll still care about your hair.

The remark resurfaced during their recent bitter High Court trial.

Colleen and Rebecca are ready for one last dramatic High Court showdown over who will foot the multi-million pound bill for their loved ones”Wagata Christidefamation battle.

Sources close to Coleen – who won the case last week – told The Mail on Sunday that she will fight to ensure Rebecca pays the full amount, which is estimated to be up to £3million.

Usually, the winning party will have to pay about 30 percent of the costs.

But Coleen’s team said the judge’s damning ruling that Becky had sold stories about her to The Sun newspaper meant it was “inconceivable” she would not be made to pay the full amount.

Mrs Justice Steyn ruled on Friday that Becky and her agent Caroline Watt had fed stories about Coleen, the wife of former England captain Wayne.

Rebecca is suing her ex-girlfriend for defamation over a now-famous social media post in which Colleen described running a “special operation” by posting fake stories to select followers on her personal Instagram account to reveal who was leaking stories about her to The Sun.

The “big reveal” post in October 2019 concluded: “This is… Rebecca Vardy’s account.”

After Rebecca filed a lawsuit, Colleen offered her a “hands off” offer, which meant they would both walk away paying their own expenses. She also suggested that they make a charitable donation.

Fair: Sources close to Coleen - who won her case last week - told The Mail on Sunday that she will fight to ensure Rebecca pays the full amount, which is estimated to be up to £3m.

But Rebecca refused, leading to an expensive High Court trial. Now, after her victory, Colleen wants her opponent to pay.

A source close to Coleen said: “Coleen didn’t want this to happen. She knew the money would be better spent on so many other things, but she wasn’t going to let Rebecca get away without paying the full cost.

“She tried to settle so early, but Rebecca wouldn’t let it. And if you look at the outline of the judgment, it’s inconceivable that a judge wouldn’t agree to pay them in full. Let’s not forget, this action was brought by Rebecca and she lost spectacularly.’

At a preliminary hearing in March last year, the costs were estimated at £1.3 million.

Now, after the case has been heard for two weeks in the High Court, reports claim the total could be £3 million.

Rebecca’s barrister, Hugh Tomlinson QC, is reported to be charging £10,000 a day, while his opponent, David Sherborne, charges around £8,000.

There is speculation that Rebecca and her husband, Leicester City striker Jamie, may have to sell their Portuguese villa to pay the legal bill.
