After weeks of boring Brexit news, at last we have a headline that the whole country’s interested in.
Super-Wag Coleen Rooney has accused Rebekah Vardy's Instagram account of feeding stories about her to tabloid newspapers.
And social media has absolutely erupted with memes. And they’re amazing.
A tired nation nation needed a story like this, and we’ve got it.
As Netflix UK have said: “We're going to have to make a documentary about this, aren't we?” Yes please, Netflix. But first, maybe a gritty detective drama?
You can just hear Ted Hastings saying "“After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion."
Or, if we can't have Ted, what about a sexy fantasy with lots of dragons and naked people?
- Coleen Rooney claims Rebekah Vardy's Instagram account leaked private stories
When the meme-makers aren't making smart references to beloved TV shows, they're plugging into other news stories and making clever, lateral, connections:
This is a football story that people who have never taken an interest in football can get into. And it's putting the VAR in Vardy:
- Wayne Rooney warned Jamie Vardy about WAG Rebekah in 2016 England showdown talks
Which is an important reminder. When we say the whole country is enjoying the drama, maybe not absolutely everyone:
- Wayne Rooney and Jamie Vardy's awkward England goalscoring stat with WAGs at war
For the rest of the UK's social media users though, it's irresistible.
This could definitely run and run. A regular annual WAG deathmatch would be a lot more fun than endless transfer rumours.
And it's undeniably a big improvement on boring politics news.
