A 28-year-old man has admitted blackmailing Coleen Rooney, wife of England soccer star Wayne Rooney.
The TV personality and OK! Magazine columnist has thought to have lost her phone containing family photos at a concert in Manchester last year according to the BBC. Lee Platt, from Manchester, also admitted handling a stolen camera and will be sentenced at a later date at Manchester Crown Court. Two other defendants, Jennifer Green, 25, and Steven Malcolm, 42, also from Manchester entered a not guilty plea to the same charges.
The native Liverpudlian is best known for her marriage to soccer superstar Wayne Rooney but has worked extensively in the media presenting several television programmes and fashion shows as well as a best-selling fitness DVD, 'Coleen Mcloughlin's Brand New Body Workout'.
